Tot School- July 2014 (8 Months Old)

So I've had a few people ask me about the specifics of my tot school lesson plans and what not, so I thought I would start posting them on our blog.  I have copied my structure and some ideas from my friend Candace who is an amazing mom and educator, so you should also check her blog out here.  Also, I am doing tot school with my friend Amanda and her daughter, so we collaborate on our activities and ideas.  And of course, I get tons of ideas from Pinterest.  So all that to say, I can't take full credit for everything I do!! Feel free to steal ideas, or better yet, send me your ideas! =]

Here's what we did in July:

Wave, wave, wave the flag,
