It’s time for the very first toddler school post and I couldn’t be more excited! I have been working on this curriculum for almost 6 months now and I am so happy with how it has turned out. The Toddler Curriculum has a different theme for each letter of the alphabet with lots of toddler-appropriate printables, toddler tray ideas, a letter craft idea and other ideas for teaching each letter. Go here to purchase the Toddler Curriculum for $19.99.

Learn how to use these a is for apples activities to teach your toddlers the letter a

The curriculum is very comprehensive and hopefully has more than you need for each letter so that you can pick and choose what to use with your toddler. For more information about the Toddler Curriculum, please check out my Toddler Curriculum and Schedule post. Your child will generally spend 2 weeks on each letter, but some letters they only do for 1 week. The first few letters we’ll only do one week so that we can introduce the curriculum to you more quickly. To help you get an idea of what the curriculum includes, we’ve not only included a bunch of photos below, but you can also download the letter A packet for free! Simply click here to start the download.

You might be wondering if your child is the right age for this curriculum, you can find out if they are by checking out this post.

I will try really hard to get pictures of all the different parts of the curriculum for each letter so that you can see them. However, this curriculum has a LOT of activities for each letter. I might not get to everything and if I do, I might only get a picture of it, but my kids might not really do it. If you feel like the curriculum has too much for your toddler or for you, don’t get overwhelmed, just take some of it out. 🙂 Go to the store page if you’d like to purchase the curriculum or click on the link below.
