Tot Trays

Here are our trays for this week!  We've done lots of fine motor stuff recently so I tried to incorporate some different skills. 

Counting stars
For this task, I'll have Sweet Girl roll the dice, count the dots and then count out an equal number of stars.  My hope is to make this a turn-taking game, but we'll see how that goes!

Matching jobs with appropriate objects
I found this great little "busy people" flashcards from Target a month or so ago.  I've pulled out five cards and then found related objects for each job around the house.  I plan on laying out all the objects and then looking at the cards with Sweet Girl.  We'll talk about the job and then I'll have her try to decide which object fits with that job.  A great task for critical thinking.
