Rainy Day Art Activity

Is it spring yet?? Quite honestly, I am done with snow and ready to embrace all the spring showers! My kids love puddle jumping, and wet pant hems are much better than below freezing temps and being stuck indoors all day. Let’s get started with rainy day activities!

Indoor Ice Skating

The Winter Olympics are coming to an end Have you done anything to celebrate them? I followed along with Susie and Kristina’s Very Toddler Winter Games this year and was inspired to do an activity ourselves (very last minute, as is my style 😉 ) This is an activity I actually did with my students…

The BEST Library Bag!

Let’s just get this out of the way- I’m a total nerd This post contains affiliate links I used to be ashamed of it, but not anymore. I’m nerdy and I’m OK with it 🙂 I love books. I love the library. I love talking pedagogy to anyone who will listen. Scrabble was my first…

Toothpaste and Brushing Experiment

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of American Dental Association Time to brush! It was about this time last year that our home preschool group took a field trip to the dentist’s office to learn more about dental health. My kids see the dentist twice a year for their check-ups, but…

H is for Heart preschool alphabet activity (great for Valentine's Day!)

H is for Heart Activity

We had a few leftover heart stickers after last week’s I Can Feel my Heart Beat science lesson, so I decided to use them in a quick newspaper letter hunt! The activity was super simple to set-up.  All I used was newspaper and heart stickers. Bam. Done. Preschool fun and learning set up in less…

I Can Feel My Heartbeat

Be still my heart… No literally. Be still son. I just want to snap one picture! If I’ve learned anything as a boy mom, it’s that I need a super fast shutter speed to capture pictures of my little loves <3  Today was no different, so I’m glad I had my camera ready beforehand so…

Preschool Scissor Skills Assessment

Are you ready to start teaching your preschoolers scissor skills? Do you know where to start? As a teacher, one of the first things I would do before starting a new unit was assess prior knowledge. Figuring out how much my students already knew so I could build on that and promote new learning. Most…
