  • Solar Eclipse Activities

    Preschool Eclipse Activities

    I’m so happy to have these eclipse activities ready for you! Little ones can struggle with these kinds of special events because they just don’t have the frame of reference to understand why they’re a big deal to the adults in their lives AND what is actually happening. The eclipse activities that I’ve put together will help work through both of those challenges in a way that is developmentally appropriate, while also supporting the other work that they’ve been doing throughout the year. I firmly believe that none of us can truly understand any topic if we don’t have the vocabulary to discuss it with others. Vocabulary cards like these…

    Making teacher tasks easier and more efficient

    It feels kind of laughable to share efficiency tips at the moment because I’m definitely still trying to get back in the swing of things after an extended holiday break – I feel anything but organized and efficient! That being said, there are definitely some tools that I use to help make life easier even when I’m not feeling like I’ve got it all together. I consider myself to be a very organized person, so these resources are things that I’ve created to make my planning process a little more streamlined and to help save time. These are all available in my TPT store, so make sure to click the…

    Clip Art Collections

    I’ve shared that all 12 months of my preschool plans are now available (check those out here) – but I haven’t taken time to highlight all of my clipart sets! I’ve truly loved creating these and it’s so fun to look back at each set and notice all of the great seasonal details included. Here are all of the clipart sets that I have in both my TPT and Etsy shops. In pulling together all of these images I realized that I haven’t showed you my latest set – this is the Peppermint Wonderland bundle! I love the classic red and green for Christmas, but red and pink is definitely…

    Have you ever gotten so into a project that you completely forget what day it is? Or does that just happen to me?

All of the preschool resources that you need for the month of December are available now (and that’s not even the major announcement). This December set is truly so fun.

    November Lesson Plans!

    It’s officially here! The November Month of Preschool set is available! This collection of activities just my be my favorite month yet. It can be tricky to navigate Thanksgiving and all of the different family and historical aspects that come with it. The learning experiences included in this set cover the holiday and related themes in developmentally and culturally appropriate ways, while still being tons of fun. There is a heavy focus on the holiday, including themes of families, gratitude and thankfulness, traditional Thanksgiving foods, and baking. I’ve added some brand new activities, and even a few that are only available as part of this set. Here’s a sneak peak…

  • Non-Halloween themes for October

    October themes for classrooms that don’t celebrate Halloween

    I love holidays and celebrating them in the classroom, but there are many completely valid reasons for not incorporating these into your lesson plans. When it comes to Halloween there can be religious considerations, cultural implications, and economic concerns. Every school has it’s own policy, but if you don’t celebrate holidays in the classroom it can be a real challenge to look for new lesson plan ideas and only find the ubiquitous Halloween ideas. I have a list of 35 fall themes that can be a great starting point for your planning, but these few October themes fit closely enough to Halloween that you can use many of the Halloween…
