Tot School - M is for Mickey Mouse - Week 4

~Bug is 16 months old~
This week we continued with the letter M. We officially have Tot School three days a week so I feel that we can take two weeks on each letter and verse so that Bug gets the most out of each lesson. Mickey Mouse is his new favorite character and has learned that he can watch it on the IPhone. TV time is limited but we also use the IPhone with some learning apps which are helping with shapes and colors. Bug is still doing really well with the color blue but it’s touch and go with the others.
Neither of us speaks Spanish but feel it is important for Bug to learn so we are implementing every tool we have. Bugs laptop teaches the numbers and a few words so we use it several times during the week. It’s fun to hear him say “uno.”
Reading time happens every day whether we are having Tot School or not. Here we are reading from Bugs color book. The book asks what color things are and then has a page that has things that color. Bug has gotten good at identifying some of the items on the page when asked.
Bug loves outdoor time and the weather is getting very nice so we went to the park. He was able to make a new little friend and they ran around together. His favorite thing is the swing so we talked about up, down, go and stop. He quickly learned up was where he wanted to go.

Next week brings a new letter and new Tot School Tools. Can’t wait to see what happens. Until then… love and hugs!
