Tot School ~ Letter Nn / Bugs

~Ladybug is currently 26.5 months old~



Tot School Printables N is for Net

Letter: Nn

Object: Net

Vocabulary Development Theme: Bugs

You can find the printables for this unit here on the Tot School Printables webpage.

I set many of her Nn activities up in our pocket chart so she could easily see the options and show me what she would like to do. Everything you see can be downloaded from the Tot School Printables Letter Nn section, except for the ABC cards on the left-those are from the Very Hungry Caterpillar Tot Pack.

  • bottom right: Bee Hive game
  • far right: buggy fleece {to use with sensory bin and for play-she LOVES blankees!}


This week I set up both sides with the bug theme, I won’t always do this-especially for smaller themes. Bugs was the theme for Krash and PacMan too, so it took over homeschool {and still is!}


She went straight for the bee hat and has put it on each day! Here she was sorting the bugs by color..IMG_8399

She didn’t like the chop sticks I had for this so she used her fingers which is totally fine!IMG_8412

She loved the net I put out and we had fun catching bugs with it…IMG_8416


She still loves this bug puzzle even though it is way too easy for her now…


Ordering caterpillars by size…IMG_8759

To say she likes the bug books would be a total understatement. I don’t know what it is about kids and bugs but it is a true love relationship. She looks through her bug books daily.IMG_8762


The Bugs Sensory Bin was enjoyed all week long, MANY times! This is definitely a favorite bin. Both little kids have asked for it daily.





We made sound eggs together…IMG_8463

She was able to tell me what each one was several times and really enjoyed this!IMG_8469


We went to the zoo with some great friends! Ladybug loved it all but the sheep freaked her out a tad.

At the zoo, she was all smiles-all day long.

Until it was time for a group photo and she pulled out the DRAMA.
