Butterfly Crafts for Preschool

One of the best parts of spring in my preschool classroom is getting to watch caterpillars turn into butterflies. This is a wonderful way of working science into your classroom while engaging children with something they can observe first hand. Our caterpillars arrived yesterday and I’ll be taking them to my class Monday. If you […]

Easter Literacy Center Activity

Preschool is all about getting children prepared for kindergarten right? I think we could debate that; I think preschool is about supporting children’s development right where they are at without some looming goal. Of course, we want to help create a strong foundation of skills, and if that’s “preparing for kindergarten” then cool, we are […]

Animal Habitats – Preschool Science Activity

Where do animals live? This habitat activity for preschool is a fun way to talk to your students about where animals live. You can use these free printables as mats at a science center or on a magnet board. In my 3 year old classroom, I popped these printables up on the magnet board and […]

Books About Pets for Preschool

I love teaching children about pets because it’s a door into learning about animals in a very relatable way for young children. Great lessons build on pre-existing knowledge and experiences and pets are something many children have prior knowledge about, even if the pet isn’t their own. These books about pets for preschool and kindergarten […]

Preschool Easter Activities – Sensory Play

As a teacher in a Christian school, we love celebrating Easter, and I wanted to gather some fun preschool Easter activities that you can use if you celebrate Easter in your classroom or at home. Sometimes I take the value of sensory activities for granted, but if you are new to teaching you may not know […]

Bird Watching Activity for Preschool

I am always searching for more preschool science activities to share in my classroom science table. With 2 and 3-year-olds I keep the science very basic, but I still want it to be engaging and feed my students’ curiosity about the world around them. This simple bird watching activity isn’t really watching live birds, but […]

Big & Little Circle Time Lesson with Free Printables

Circle time is a special time in every preschool day to come together as a group, sing some songs, read a book, and do a short developmentally appropriate activity. I use circle time to talk about emotions, to work on simple skills, and help gently and appropriately teach my students how to function in a group. […]

NO Food – Easter Sensory Bin

A sensory bin looks like a lot of potential mess for many teachers, and yes sometimes they do make a lot of mess, but they are also a key ingredient to a calm room. They offer children a chance to explore textures, chat with fellow students, and for some get those sensory needs met while squishing, […]

Read Across America: Library Dramatic Play with Printables!

The public library is my happy place and this year my students are obsessed with books. My classroom is packed with book lovers, often during free choice, one or more children will be sitting reading book after book to themselves. It never ceases to make my heart fill with joy. Which makes celebrating Read Across America […]

What Can You Do With An Empty Box? Creative Activity for Kids

This post is in partnership with Paramount Pictures Ever wonder where just a little imagination and an empty box will take you? One of my favorite things about working with young children is diving into imaginary worlds whether it’s on a playground pirate ship or classroom coffee shop. Pretend play is vital for children because […]

Black History Month – Preschool Lesson Plan

February is Black History Month, and while I firmly believe that Black history is American history and deserves to be taught all 12 months of the year, I also think it’s worthwhile to shine an extra light on it during this month because for so long it was completely left in the dark. Now teaching […]

Heart Shape Crafts & Activities for Preschool

During the month of February, we use the excitement of Valentine’s Day to focus some of our attention on shapes, specifically the heart shape. There are many ways of doing this but I love creating with our hands in some way, to allow my preschool students to manipulate the shapes as they craft something with […]

Picture Books About Activism, Protest, and Standing Up for Others

Activism can mean going to marches holding signs, or it can simply be a child standing up and telling their friend what they just said is unkind. Like everything in education, we early childhood educators must take big ideas, huge goals, future skills and break them down into small easy to accept lessons. These books […]

Snowmen at Night Toddler Art Project

In my classroom, the vast majority of the day is spent in free choice with fun hands-on activities, creative toys, and sensory explorations. We have a short circle time and a short group art time as well. While we usually also have art supplies out during free choice the group art time is normally an activity […]
