I've really had a breakthrough with Jack's Tot School this week. This has been an awesome week of learning fun for Jack. The past few weeks have been difficult having Jack only nap once a day now. This means Jack is up and running around during his older brother's school time. Well, this week I decided to sit Jack at our school table across from big brother, put out some activities for him, and see what happened. Here were the results, and no, Jack did not do all of these things in one day, actually two, but he did wear the same pj's for more than one night:-) and just happens to have them on in all of this week's pics:-):
This was a huge success! I hope to have many more weeks just as this week. Jack loved working at the table with Joe. It was heartwarming watching them work together. One of the rewards I enjoy from having children, and being blessed enough to be able to homeschool them.
Jack did other things as well this week, like puzzles:
Pasta I Spy/sensory bin, this was a big hit! (This idea came from The Rogers Family Blog.):
Jack also found a baby doll at home and decided to care for this doll just as he sees me care for Jesse. Taking care of this doll was completely initiated by Jack, and it has been so sweet and entertaining to watch him with his "Jesse" (this is what Jack calls his doll) throughout the week. I tried really hard to get a picture of Jack burping him--my favorite to watch--but never did have the camera nearby at the right moment.
To see what others are doing this week in Tot School, head over to 1+1+1=1.
