What's on the Tray? October 10-14

Super Tot is 32 months old.

We went on a last minute trip out of town over the weekend, so I didn't have time to prepare our regular Tot Trays for our Letter of the Week activities.  I wanted him to have some new activities this week, so I threw these trays together this morning.  Next week, we will get back to our Letter of the Week theme with the letter Gg.

Gourd Sequencing
Create patterns & sequences using the gourds.
~patterns, sequencing~   

Play Dominos
Dominos are an easy game for preschoolers to learn, so I will begin teaching Super Tot how to play this week.
~problem solving~

Color Matching
Clip the butterfly hair clips onto the matching popsicle sticks.
~fine motor, color matching & recognition~

Nuts & Bolts
Screw each nut onto the correct bolt.
~fine motor, size differentiation~

Eraser Sorting
Sort the sports ball erasers by type of ball.  Once sorted, count the total number of each type of ball.
~sorting, counting~

Counting Glass Beads
Place the correct number of beads into each bowl.

 Alphabet Sticker Match
Place the correct alphabet sticker onto each written letter.

What Goes Together Puzzles
Complete each 2-piece puzzle by matching objects that go together.

  1. Little hairclips instead of clothespins is a great idea. Same sort of concept but keeps it new. Your trays always look so inviting!

  2. This is great! I love that you show how easily activity trays can be put together. Thanks for linking up with Montessori Monday. I featured your post at the Living Montessori Now Facebook page:
