If you have read the Tot School blog at all, you know that Carissa suggests having Tot Trays for Tot School. The concept is similar to Montessori classrooms. The teacher puts out multiple trays with different activities on each one. The student then takes a tray, completes the activity, and then returns the tray for another one.
Well, yesterday I was at the Goodwill and came across these:
I found four oval divided 'trays' that I think will work well for our learning. I also found this cool plate with 6 divided spots. Not sure what it was for originally. The trays were 30 cents a piece and the round divided piece was 50 cents. So, a total of 1.70 :) Keeping Tot School affordable.
