What kinds of activities are included?
Each week the ready-to-use theme provides a well-rounded set of activities focusing on language development, social/emotional development, creative arts, cognitive development, physical development, and multiple approaches to learning. You can view sample activities from each theme here.
Can I find activities that involve a specific skill my children need to work on?
Yes! Use our searchable database to find activities based on letters, numbers, colors, shapes, skills, or even keywords.
Simply click the Search for Activities button, choose the Age Range and any other filters you would like, enter a keyword into the Search box, and click Find. Activities will be displayed in the Search Results area. Keep in mind that sometimes a keyword may have more than one meaning, so all results may not be exactly what you are looking for.
What kind of supplies do I need to provide?
Most of the art activities in our curriculum have been created with simplicity of gathering resources in mind. If you don't have one of the supplies on hand, simply substitute another supply to fill the need. For example, if you don't have wiggle eyes, simply draw eyes using a black marker OR cut two small circles from white paper, draw a black dot in the center of each circle, and glue the eyes on the project.
Once you have built your lesson plans, select the Materials List button to view and print the materials you will need for that week. We also have a general list of materials. Please be advised that not all materials may be appropriate for ages 0 through 5. Use caution when storing all supplies. Parents are a valuable resource in any classroom! Invite them to help you gather materials for your environment by sending home our downloadable Wish List.
