Tot School Triangle Activities

Archer was 23 Months
We have been working on Shape Themes in Tot School. You can see the Shape Themes "Curriculum" post here.
This is what Archer's desk area looked like. The posters are from The Learning Effect. The shelf included a couple Non-Fiction Sight Words books, a Meet the Sight Words book, an alphabet book, a digraph book and a couple Animal Antics Readers. I also included a Mathstart Book. His artwork from the week is hanging as well.
This week included some fondant cutters, a triangle stamp and a texture block from a dough set we have.
Coloring some triangles. Well, that was my plan. Archer had other plans, so we didn't. (Free to print here). 
We used stickers to fill in his dot art (Free to print here).
Tracing triangles. (Free to print here).
Coloring and painting triangles.
I made him a sensory bin with some black beans, the flower toob and watering can. He insisted I add letters to it.
Reading in the crib. Muddle and Match Books are current favorites.
Learning about different kinds of triangles on Your Child Can Discover.
Playroom shelves include both theme related tot school activities and other toys, usually open ended. The goal is to work on things like fine motor skills, visual spacial skills, math and literacy (and keep him entertained). I have been trying to also include one of our toddler games, to get him more used to playing games with us.

The white board had some magna-tile triangles. The top had some opaque and translucent triangle-related shapes.

Shelves on the left had alphabet matching puzzles, gardening vocabulary cards, a safari animal sorting truck and Whac-a-Mole game. Shelves on the right had toddler magnetsDuplos and pattern cards (from All Our Days), sequencing puzzle, a golf tee game with balls, sequencing beads and cars with highway shape (from Making Learning Fun).

A golf tee game with some little wooden balls. He spent a lot of time putting the tees in and out of the board.
Playing with his sequencing beads. He does not actually follow the template cards yet, but he does like putting the beads on the posts.
