My Mommy School Philosophy
Mommy School is all about constructive fun with developmentallyappropriate learning!
My philosophy is that toddlers learn through experiences. I believe that toddlerslearn by seeing and doing, so Mommy School is intended to be action-based. Ibelieve that most 2- and 3-year-olds are not yet ready for pencil/paper activities. My hope is to provide you with a few tools to help guide your toddler’s learning.For me, the most exciting part about teaching my toddler is seeing the worldthrough his eyes. He is starting to understand the world for the very first time!Because this is the first time that our toddlers are exposed to many concepts,please don’t expect your toddler to catch on immediately. It can be difficultat times to gage your own success because toddlers can’t alwayscommunicate exactly what they are learning. You will see their progress later on because they are in the process of building connections to the worldaround them!I compile a variety of activities in my Mommy School units, but I don’t expect todo them all. Allow your child to experience letters, numbers, colors, shapes,and other thematic elements in their own unique way. You will quickly see thatyour child thrives with some learning methods and not others. Pick and chooseactivities that work best for you and your child.I am trained as an Early Childhood Educator, and I taught First Grade for 4years. However, I am building my Mommy School units from a mother’sperspective. I am a Mom first, and a Teacher second.Remember that I have searched the web high and low seeking the very besttoddler activities. I am not the genius behind all of them—I simply gather themall in one place. Be sure to look at the credits section for more great ideas!Most of all have fun! Children will see your attitude, and will respond similarly.Enjoy discovering the world with your child.
Good luck!

Pin the Arm on the Monster Play this game just like “Pin the tail on the donkey.” Blindfold children andhave them pin arms onto a monster poster. It might be fun to create your very own monster on butcher paper!Tickle Monster Create a tickle monster by cutting the ends of the fingers off of a child’sglove. Hot glue fur to the front of the glove. Hot glue eyeballs or other facial features. Place on child’s hand and encourage them to scare or tickle their friends or family!Don’t Scare the Monster!Play this attached game just like “Don’t Eat Pete.” Place an M&M or another small candy on each game square. One child leaves the roomand one monster is secretly chosen. The child enters the room andbegins to eat the M&M’s one by one. When he/she reaches the monster that was secretly chosen, the rest of the group yells out, “Don’t scare themonster!”Monster CardsPrint the attached monster cards. Use them to play memory/match. Youcould also use these for a sorting activity. Sort cards by monsters’ colors.You could also count the monsters’ eyes and sort them this way also.
