Tot School: All About Colors

For the month of September, we will be working on learning all about colors .

For some of you, this is the first month to Homeschool your little ones at home using our curriculums (or making your own).


Because homeschooling a toddler it is a first for most, I thought to share with you the plan and all of the activities to do this month. All with the hope to inspire you to continue each month creating lesson plans and activities for your little ones. 

When it comes to creating a homeschool schedule, just know that will be a lot of adjustments to the schedule before you find one that works for you.  Be flexible in your day you will find your groove and will have your day filled with lots of fun and learning opportunities.

This month is all about colors, so let’s get started! 

When to start teaching colors 

Although, what I have read says that you should introduce colors and shapes whenever it comes up naturally all through infancy, the rule of thumb is that 18 months is the acceptable age when children can developmentally grasp the idea of colors. What I have found is that most of the kids can benefit from being exposed to colors early on so when 18 months come around they grasp the colors a lot faster!  First do primary colors then do the rest. So if you have a child younger than 18 months you can start exposing them providing activities for primary colors ( red, yellow, blue and green).
