I love Pete The Cat because my students love him and while planning out some new ideas to use in my own classroom I decided to bundle them together and create a print at home digital download inspired by the super popular Pete the Cat books.

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.

In my classroom, we are always teaching about kindness, modeling standing up for ourselves and others in appropriate ways, as well as other social-emotional lessons. Once or twice a month I take time to teach explicit circle time lessons with a focus on social-emotional learning. Now, remember I only meet with my class twice a week, […]
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 […]
When the first snowflake falls, the world becomes a winter wonderland…however, as winter drags on, the cold can feel less than magical. If you live in the Midwest like I do, you’re no stranger to a bitter, beautiful winter, often asking yourself “How can it look this gorgeous but be this cold?” Don’t let the […]

With Martin Luther King Day and Black History Month (in the US) coming up soon, we thought that it would be a good time to learn a little about Rosa Parks – a brave lady who made a big change by taking a stan
Paper dolls are a timeless toy. They have been around for centuries, but were popularised in the early 1800s. I don’t think there would be many of us who wouldn’t remember playing with them as children.
We’ve topped up our Year of the Pig printables collection today with some new posters – photographic and illustrated, gorgeous pig writing paper and some fu
