As a stay-at-home mom to a precocious two year old, I found I needed to be organized and have fun things planned for my little one so that neither of us ended up going stir crazy.
I started out choosing a theme for each week and then planning books, crafts and activities around the theme. I believe that children learn best when they are "doing." As an elementary school teacher and early literacy specialist I found that when children are excited about a topic and engaged in learning about it, they internalize and remember so much more than if they were just sitting learning skills. By incorporating math and literacy activities in thematic units, children are applying the skills and strategies in real world experiences.
This blog was created as a way to document and share the weekly fun Eva and I have. I hope you will be able to use some of the ideas and share with me ideas of your own so that this can become a go-to place for all your toddler learning needs.
