Looking for ideas for Tot School weekly themes? Here’s a great list of more than 50 weekly themes ideas that would make for such fun lessons and activities!
Welcome to another post all about my new favorite toddler activity, Tot School. I learned about Tot School from Simply Learning, and it’s completely changed how we schedule our days!
I’ve already written posts about what Tot school is and how I plan each week, so today, we’re adding another helpful post to the series!
Today’s post is all about Tot School weekly themes! The first thing I decide each week as I plan our activities is the theme. The theme is basically the most important part of planning Tot School because it is what everything for that week revolves around.
I mentioned this in my planning post, but your theme can be broad or specific, and they can be seasonal or more general. You can pick a theme based off something your child is struggling with (like if they aren’t good at sharing or listening you can do a sharing week or obedience week), or something they’re interested in. As long as there are activities and books out there on a subject, you can pick it for Tot School!
Here is a giant list (that I will probably continue to add to) of Tot School weekly themes.
Tot School Weekly Themes
- Fairy Tales
- Body Parts
- Thanksgiving/Being Thankful
- Valentine’s Day/Loving Others
- St. Patrick’s Day
- 4th of July
- All About Me
- Health/Going to the Doctor
- My State
- Being Kind/Sharing
- My Religion
Seriously, there are so many different ideas out there, and you just have to pick what you think your toddler will enjoy. I haven’t found a theme that has been hard yet, and it’s a lot of fun centering our play and reading around a theme each week.
Let me know if you can think of any more great Tot School weekly themes that I can add to the list!
We love doing “mommy school” around here. Right now we’re doing a rainforest unit, at my three-year-old’s request, and it’s been so fun!

I can’t wait to start Tot School with my little guy! I’m just wondering if you could share how you organize all of your supplies? Thanks!

I actually just keep all of my stuff in a big plastic tub in my craft closet. Nothing fancy here!
