Tot School Gathering Place ~ week 54

Gather together here, gather ideas from other blogs, share your own ideas on your own blog. Browse around at the other posts linked up, leave a few comments if you have time, and be sure to check back to see if your blog was featured!



How can it be that we are already half way through the first month of the New Year already?!?! Many of you probably already know that time with our Tots is quick and fleeting! Make every moment count and look through the linked blog posts for ideas to keep those Tots busy!

Remember the excitement of planning and preparing for that first week of Tot School? Maybe you’ve been in the schooling trenches for a few years now and need to “recapture” that feeling – then head on over to Adventures in Tot School and see what the Mama of Munchkin came up with for her very first official week of Tot School! Her excitement is contagious!

Sometimes we forget that we can create some of our Tot School props and opt to buy commercially produced items. Check out Mama Jennifer over at Spinner’s End Primary School at the Linton Academy to see this easy to create project that may inspire your Tot to explore shapes, stretchiness, and “musical instruments”!

Over at Every Day for Them, Mama Heather has put together a number of fun and fabulous activities for Tot Hannah to explore the letter F, fish, and frogs! Take a look to see which activity was a big hit with Tot Hannah!

Remember to visit our new Pinterest board hosting our featured blogs each week! Be sure to follow the board and re-pin ideas you like, it’s a great way to support each other!!

I also created a new Tot School Printables Pinterest Board. If you are using Tot School Printables and blogging about it, will you email me with a link to one of your posts and your Pintrest link? I am opening up the board to allow other bloggers to pin their Tot School posts that feature Tot School Printables in action.

Please read this carefully before linking up! This may no longer be the linky for you, so please glance through this list to be sure you want to stick around and link up with us!
By linking up you agree to the following:
  1. A photo and a link to your post may appear in a future Tot School post. You give me permission to choose a photo from the post you link up, and give me permission to use your ideas in my post. I will link back to you, mention your blog, and give you full credit for any ideas choose to share form your post. If you don’t want me sharing photos, your blog, or ideas, please don’t link up.
  2. Your post is a post written specifically for Tot School and not just an idea for tots. It features your own child{ren} in action. This is a community for moms to come together and share their journey with Tot School virtually.
  3. Provide a link back to Tot School within your blog post {you can use this link: or a direct link to the weekly post you link up to} if you link up. If you do not link back to Tot School, your link will be deleted. Link backs on the sidebar, or in a massive “I link up here” page don’t count ~ they are too difficult for me to find and the first thing I look for when verifying links is the link back.
  4. Link up your exact Tot School post {not your blog homepage} if you are unsure how to do that read this!
    Each week I will feature photo{s} and ideas from blogs who link up. Sometimes it may be one simple idea, sometimes it may be a collection based around a concept .
