Every year I wish that Valentine’s Day was at the end of February instead of right smack in the middle. I love all things Valentine’s Day and could plan new activities all about hearts and love for an entire month in my preschool classroom! One of my favorite part of Valentine’s Day in preschool is when the kids hand out Valentines to each other. We
January bring a new year and all things winter in preschool! We’re all about cold weather (that we don’t get to experience where we live), snowmen, and PENGUINS. Now that it’s the new year, we’re also focusing on writing skills in my preschool classroom. Our penguin pre-writing tracing cards are the perfect way to combine it all! Penguin Pre-Writing Tracing Cards I am so excited
Do you find yourself walking through the seasonal aisles at your favorite dollar spot needing to buy everything you see? Well, I have a thing for mini erasers. I cannot walk past without purchasing them. The snowmen erasers that I found recently were no exception — they were too cute to pass by. The erasers worked perfectly for our snowmen in a snowstorm sensory bottle too! Affiliate
Winter has arrived! It isn’t exactly freezing where we are, but we are always looking for new winter themed activities to try. So whether you need an excuse to stay inside and play where it’s not freezing cold, or are still using your AC, you must try our snowy day alphabet writing tray. It’s the perfect low prep, hands-on learning activity to practice letter formation.
Practicing number recognition and counting skills with preschoolers becomes even more fun when snacks are involved! Our free printable penguin counting mats are perfect for a busy bag at home or an independent learning center in the classroom. They fit into a bird or winter theme and are super duper cute! Feeding the penguin fish crackers is silly, fun, and ends with a yummy snack!
My preschoolers are obsessed with all of my trinkets. I can’t actually call them manipulatives because of all the different random items we use in my classroom as learning materials. I’m not sure if it’s the small size of these items that we use to count, build letters, pick up with squeezers, fill a sensory bin with, just play with, or if it’s the amount
Pumpkin pie screams fall! At our Thanksgiving feast at preschool, the kids all get an extremely kid-friendly version of Thanksgiving dinner and pumpkin pie (with whipped cream of course!). We’ve been talking and reading stories about all things pumpkins lately. I’ve got preschoolers who tell me they love pumpkin pie, who act like they have no idea what pumpkin pie is, and some who definitely
Who else has an obsession with mini erasers? It cannot just be me. Every time I’m in the dollar store or the Dollar Spot, I love looking through them all. There were a ton of options out for the fall season too! There are a million different learning ideas that they can be used for. A pumpkin pre-writing activity was perfect for all of the
Learning about the people around our community who help us is always fun with preschoolers. But what my preschoolers love the most are the vehicles that the community helpers get to ride around in. I don’t know if it’s the wheels, the sirens that some of them have, or just the fact that cars and trucks are so cool to little kids, but they are always a
One of my absolute favorite themes that we focus on during the school year in preschool is the farm! My preschoolers love animals of all kinds, but all the songs, sensory activities, adorable crafts, and fun books make learning about a farm and the animals that live there such an engaging topic. There are lots of farm printable activities out there, but I thought adding in
