Field Trip
We went to the NM State Fair for our field trip this week.  R had so much fun looking at all the different farm animals.  We also got to see a live cow milking and sheep shearing, and there was an adorable kids area where the kids were able to pretend to be farmers.  R gathered eggs, harvested crops, milked a pretend cow and more!  We also found an awesome "sandbox" of corn kernels which he could have easily stayed at all day!  It was the perfect field trip for our Farm Unit!

Books


That's all for this week! To see what other toddlers are learning this week, check out the official Tot School Website!

  1. Ooh - we are just starting a week of cows today. I like the idea of matching the toy to the picture in the book. What a great way to teach 1-1 correspondence. I may have to borrow your idea this afternoon =)
