  • Why on earth does a toddler need curriculum? Play with them. Let them be kids. They learn through play anyway, not sitting through lesson plans.

  • check out abeka.com. the actual lesson plan they have planned out is WAY too expensive, but you can buy the toddler books seperately. they have Learning Numbers with button bear, Arts and Crafts with Button bear, and Child Art. the arts and crafts with button bear has a list of what you need to buy in order for you to do all the crafts in the book. you can also go to a teacher store and get a big calendar, months, shapes, letters, colors, ect, posters you can put up. go over the month, day and date every day, you can do a shape, color, number and letter of the week. there are groups on here that can help, i'm part of a toddler preschool one. they have great ideas and websites you can check out for help on how to do your weekly corriculum. and remember, it's not all just paperwork, also let your kids work through play.

  • My toddler is only 14 months, so his "curriculum" consists of taking daddy's shoes, playing with the Little People toys, singing songs with me and watching Baby Einstein videos. That's about it so far.

  • Don't sweat a "curriculum" at this age they don't need organized learning, just fun learning. Pick up a few learning toys (I like the old fashion ones that don't make sound) like alphabet block and books and just interact with them. They will learn most from you. You can buy the computer toys if you want but you don't need to. If you want something more structured pick a theme a month and build on that. . . Like our frog/toad month we read books about frog/toads (frog and toad are friends), learned the letters in frog/toad, painted & buried toad houses, jumped like frogs, learned what frogs said, colored frog/toad pictures. . .
