Welcome Fall!!!!!!

Hello Hello! Now that fall is approaching us, be sure that your kiddo has a jacket to keep with them for when we go outside!

In the Classroom!

With zoophonics starting, we will be focusing on one letter a week. The entire curriculum will be based off that one letter. We will be building our vocabulary, social/emotional skills, work on counting and grouping, and working on expanding our imagination.

  • Is there ever a time when you say to yourself, " I wonder if The Tot Spot would want this"? We could use it in so many ways. You may have babies, but the whole school is yours. Everything can turn into a sensory activity or learning experience. So, before you throw out your junk, ask your teacher if it could be used

The Teacher's Spotlight

If you could have dinner with anyone who would it be and why?


  • Ms. Kit: Malala Yousafzau because she is one of the most amazing people on Earth and she embodies so much of my values about education and making the world a better place.
  • Ms. Kayla: My mom, she pays lol
  • Ms. Katie: My family. like a trip back in time to do a big family Thanksgiving that I could take my current family with me on.
  • Ms. Mikayla: My grandpa. He died some years ago and I find myself thinking about him a lot.
  • Ms. Maggie: I would have dinner with Brett Farve because he was my idol going up and my late preschool teacher Marybeth Wood because she would be so proud of me and how far I've come.
  • Ms. Kasche: Drake because he's DRAKE!
  • Ms. Ayasha: My grandma. Because I miss her being around and cooking for myself and sisters.
  • Ms. Kelsey: I would have dinner with my Grandpa. He was such a fun and loving man, I would love to be able to see him one more time!

  • Ms. Alisha: All my Tot Spot Graduates from 2012 through now. I miss every single one of them. I run into them from time to time and go to the bday parties and games, but I'd love to spend more time with them. It's so cool to see what's exactly the same from when they were babies and now.
  • Mr. Mike: My Grandparents, because I miss them and they were wonderful people who taught me so much
