Tot School- March 2017 (3 Years, 4 Months)

Here are our Tot School plans for March! 

Just a reminder that  we're using these literacy and math curriculum bundles and will be following these directly, so I have not outlined any of the details in my plans, just noted which lesson we're doing or which concept we're focusing on.  

Also, these plans are geared towards children ages 3-4. If you are interested in younger activities, you can check out this March post for around 1.5, and this post for around age 2.5!  I'm sure I'll be pulling old ideas from those posts for Fynn to join us some too!
