Doing Tot School - having a plan for purposeful play - is so fulfilling for both Maddie and I! We're both having so much fun, and it's so interesting to see which activities she gets and loves right away:
Which ones she struggles with and masters:
Which ones involve skills she just doesn't quite have yet:
and which ones she changes because her way is better!
Of course, making Valentine's with heart doilies and stickers (thanks Aunt Katrina!) was a blast (Maddie was the one who put one sticker on each Valentine and she was working on adding exactly one pom pom to each - she loves order):
And get a load of this awesome puzzle - it was just MADE for a little girl who loves things that GO! (thanks Grandma and Grandpa Bailey!)
There was a lot of "Self, self!" this week, so here's Maddie working diligently on putting glue on the hearts by herself!
She was very pleased with the finished Love Bug project. Can you hear the, "Oooooh!" being exclaimed?
Maddie also made some very special wrapping paper this week! (Thanks to Shannon over at the tpcraft blog for this fantastic idea!)
She did such a great job and clearly enjoyed herself!
So it was another great week at the Bailey household, though I was sick and out of it on Wednesday (Maddie kept telling me I should take a nap). If only! Hope you had a great week, too!
