Letter F Tot School

There are some letters that just aren't that fun to create work for, but the letter F isn't one of them. There are so many great ways to explore the letter f, because there are just so many great f themes. Here are some letter f tot school trays that we worked on with Henry. 

Henry is 36 months.

On our first tray was the button flower color matching work that I used in our spring unit last year. It was a set of felt flowers, corresponding button stems, and a corresponding color sheet. Henry still loved this tray this year and had a bunch of fun again matching the colors. He was much better this year at getting the flowers around the buttons.

The second tray was a set of 3-part farm cards with different farm animals. I paired the cards with our set of Schleich farm animals. Henry still struggles with matching the words on his own but enjoys matching the cards and animals.


The third tray was a set of cards which asked the kids to match the correct word with the picture. They had a picture of the word and its name spelled correctly. Then, they had three choices -- two of which were close but wrong. Then, the tray included small beads to place on the correct word. This was a big hit with the co-op kids and provided a good challenge. Henry wasn't very good at finding the correct word, but liked trying.



Other things we did included:

Block puzzle -- we used this last time too. Henry still struggled with it, but enjoyed it a lot more than last time we used it.


Feelings Cards -- I cut and laminated a bunch of baby/young child pictures from magazines with different happy/sad/surprised faces. The kids could then sort them into their respective feelings.



Magnet Board -- Complete with a set of wooden farm magnets. Everyone enjoyed making their own farm.

That felt flower color matching activity is adorable!

What great ideas! I really loved the idea of laying the beads onto the correctly spelled word (pinned it), but my son is still too young for it. I came across you blog last night while looking for some ideas for montessori spaces, and really love what I've seen! We've recently started tot school (about a month ago now), and I'm still struggling with organisation/ideas, etc, but we're starting to really find a nice rhythm and I will be trying to incorporate a lot more montessori inspired activities into our routine more generally. Soooo thank you for all of the inspiration :)

The Ultimate Montessori Toy List -- Birth to Five -- UPDATED 2021

When you are interested in Montessori, it can be difficult to know exactly what types of products you should get for your home. Or which types of "Montessori" materials are really worth the price. There are no rules about types of products can use the name Montessori which can add to the confusion. Not to mention, every toy manufacturer slaps the word "educational" on the package for good measure! 2021 UPDATE: Please be patient with links this year, with supply chain issues things are selling out faster and restocking slower. I anticipate some of the specialty toys will not restock once they are gone. Puzzles, in particular, have been difficult to find in stock. So, with this post, I'm going to try to help with this confusion! Here's a list of Montessori-friendly toys and materials for babies, toddlers and preschoolers.  First, let's clarify that there is no such thing as a "Montessori toy." Montessori never created toys, bu

Montessori Toddler: Favorite Toys and Activities 18 to 20 months

I've been putting off this post for a little while because I felt a little disappointed that I didn't have more to share. See, Teddy just isn't that into materials, especially those on the shelf. He tends to return to a couple of favorites over and over again and ignore all other attempts at shelf work. But, really that's my own adult feelings getting in the way of Teddy's own interests, and developmental path.  It's also me subconsciously valuing fine motor skills and stillness as more important than gross motor play and movement. I working hard not to do that, and want to normalize that all toddlers are different. All children have different interests and that concentration doesn't have to mean sitting still for long stretches of time.  This post contains affiliate links at no cost to you. With all that said, here are some of Teddy's favorites over the last couple of months. Favorite Montessori Toys 18 to 20 Months I'm listing the toys that have be
