Thoughts and Questions and some answers :)

Read what I'm doing with all of this at the end of the post :)


Here are some thoughts and questions- hopefully give some answers too!!

My thoughts on lesson planning- I pick and choose from tons of different sources.  I don't like having a set curriculum, not even when teaching full-time. ;)

I try to do a variety of different things and topics.

I have mapped out until June, I like having a plan.  Some people can just wing-it, I can't.  I forget about things I need and want to do.

2015-2016 Map


Will following along with Tot School cost me money?

Yes, but not as much as pre-school or daycare.  Most of the time I use easily accessible items.

Books can be checked out at the library.  I find books at Target, Wal~Mart and dollar stores.  I don't remember what themes I'm doing always, so I just buy random books.

Are somethings nice to have though?? Like a laminating machine. No you don't need one, but they aren't all that expensive though.  Most things can be used in a plastic sheet protector or plastic sleeve.
You can get both at Dollar Tree.

Do I print off my poems/songs/fingerplays?

Nope! I bring them up  usually on my phone or Froglet's iPad.  I resist turning on the computer in the mornings because I will get sucked in lol  But sometimes I do and I use it quickly and close it when we're done.

Do I do everything I plan for?

Nope lol  I plan painting but often skip it lol  I'm getting better.  :)

Do you have to do everything I planned?


What would you like to see more of or less of?

Please make sure you email me at
or message me on our Facebook page if you do have some kind of question.

All from the Dollar Tree:

Top left- see through plastic cups for the light table Green, blue, pink, and purple. Some *might* call them shot glasses, but I don't drink, so to the light table they go!

The numbers are for a calendar.

Note pad- pink butterfly, blue fish, green frog for name recognition.

Black Paw Patrol is a chalkboard- because what's old becomes new again lol

Barn- it's a farm scene

Red dish is Paw Patrol container.

Red and Blue horseshoes are magnets

We are huge Paw Patrol fans :)

No plans this week, I have to work, so stay tuned to the big kids blog for cool photos!
