School Stuff - Room Time

The half-hour that my little one spend in room time enables me some quiet to work with one or more of the others on subjects that require more teacher help.

Hunter has lost his room time discipline over the summer, so we're working up to the full half-hour with him. Up to about 20 minutes at this point. More about training for Room Time under "Our Day."

We pulled some activities out of storage for room time. The Teddy Mix & Match continues to be a a huge hit. The little ones have come up with cute names for all the bears.

It's taken some time, but I managed to gather up all the gears from Ted's old set. The youngest have never had the chance to play with it, and it keeps them busy for a long time.

We also unboxed Emelie's old Ello Fairytopia set. Another fun building set that can really hold attention.

One of the most sought after toys are those magnet letters that we all played with as children. Add a metal cookie sheet, a mixing bowl and spoon, and they happily play for some time!
