For children, play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood. — Fred Rogers
The good news is that most everything you need for the early learning years is already around the house! I’m not joking! Here’s a list of some of my favorite resources for these magical years.
All good things, even preschool, comes to an end. How do we know if that end is near?
We know our students learn many different ways but settle into their favorite learning style. But we aren’t always as conscious of our own teaching style. We each have a style of teaching that feels most natural to us, and if we recognize this we can use our strengths to their full potential, too.
The beautiful, beautiful thing about early learners is they usually prefer to use all the learning styles. The world is new and wonderful, so they don’t yet hate to look at printed letters or listen to stories or get their hands messy. They love it all, because they haven’t failed in any of those yet. It’s all good, it’s all learning, it’s all rewarding.
