Who doesn’t love a super simple activity that can be played over and over again? Simple activities are perfect for my preschoolers in my classroom. And I love when I am able to sneak in learning skills without taking any of the fun away. To go along with our bug theme in preschool, we focused on bees for a while. Our bee pollen counting activity
Super simple activities have a special place in my heart! I’m not one to spend hours prepping an activity that could be a total bust with my preschoolers. This is why I love printable activities like clip cards so much. Our robot color matching clip cards work on color matching and recognition skills, but only take minutes to prep and can be used over and
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
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
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
Back to school is one of my favorite times of the year! With all of the excitement of meeting new students, teaching routines and procedures, and starting a brand new school year comes complete (yet exciting) exhaustion. So back to school not only means a lot of fun, but also includes a lot of coffee! To end my first week back with my preschoolers, I
