I've also been struggling a little with the intended outcome of our tot school. I'm sure I'm over thinking things, but I really don't think I need to be forcing Sora to learn her alphabet or numbers at 2. I do want her to have fun and a little structure in addition to her usual free play, especially since a formal preschool is not really in her future. I know she loves doing our "projects", so for now I'm backing off a little on the letter focus, although still playing the games and doing the projects we have been doing. I'm also going to try to incorporate more imagination into our tot school.
What better way to start then pretending to sheer a sheep, wash its wool, then spin it on my spinning wheel. This toy is mine, so Sora never gets to play with it and was very excited to have a turn. I think she was frustrated that she was just pretending while when I did it, it actually worked.
Of course, every time I knit this week, Sora did too.
We ended the week with a long power outage, so we went to town more than we had planned to stay occupied (and warm).
