Twin Tot School #7...

Will and Wesley are 24 months old.

If I had to stereotype my children I would say that Wesley is my rough and tumble child. Therefore, I am always so surprised when Tot School begins because he is the one who will sit down and really focus on an activity. I really think I am underestimating them because everything I'm not sure they can do they blow out of the water. Wesley did great on matching these shapes and completed it in no time. He kept wanting to do it over and over.
These sound puzzles are so fun. I wish they had them for my age although I'm not sure what type of sounds I would want, hmmm...
I knew Will would love the transportation one. He is obsessed with airplanes which he calls "bees", so cute!
We did a little fine motor work by putting some spaghetti in an empty juice bottle (nice and cheap!). They totally rocked this as well. I am desperately trying to use up all our Parmesan cheese so we can use the empty container for a harder version of this activity! I'd also like to use a salt shaker but the dollar store only has had glass ones lately, and I'm not willing to risk that!
When Big Bro and Sis finished their Spanish activity, they had to take part in the fun their brothers were having. Mean ole' teacher (mean but very smart :) made them count them in Spanish as they put them in to "teach their brothers Spanish", but really they needed to practice! I love sneaking in learning :)

Will is also good at shape puzzles. This is his concentrating tongue. I love it!
It's nice to have a brother to cheer for you when you are working! How sweet is that?
That is the fun we had this week. Please stop by Carissa's blog for more Tot School fun!

I love the picture with the tongue sticking out too - so cute! And I also try to use up food items when there's a container I want to use for tot school, lol!

I like your shape peg foam boards - if you don't mind me asking where you got them. I would like to get some for my toddler.
Thanks,

I got those peg shapes at the Parent Teacher Store. They are made by Lauri toys that make the peg boards. They are great!
