Tot trays have been kind of slow lately. Bear is on a make-believe kick and I am following her desires. She has all the time in the world (well, at least a few years anyway) to learn her abc's and numbers. Pretending is such an important part of childhood. (I've been reading a bit on the Waldorf theory and something there just hits a chord; yet, I love so much about Montessori as well, so I would never switch over completely.)
Bear is also obsessed with reading and puzzles right now, so we do those activities multiple times each day.
As far as Tot School goes, we've mostly been reviewing things she already knows (colors, shapes, letter sounds, body parts) through trays you can see by looking at my Tot School categories. I've also added a couple of games to work on her counting and number recognition from 1 to 3. (Post to come, much later.)
And of course we do a lot of art and a lot of cutting.
