    March Preschool Activities

    Can you believe it’s almost March?! February always flies by but I feel like this year was faster than ever. As we prepare to start a new month, I wanted to make sure that you had all of the help you need, and that includes a great big list of resources that you can access in one file. Here is everything that’s included in my March Month of Preschool set – oh, and just a note, the March set does NOT include Easter activities. All of the Easter materials are in the April set, so you may want to grab both sets (or the 12 month bundle at a discounted…

    Eclipse Supplies for Teachers

    March is going to fly by – with St. Patrick’s Day, Easter, and spring break – so the eclipse on April 8th will be here before we know it! I’m already getting excited, and planning for the big day is definitely building that anticipation.

That means that the week before the eclipse is the prime time for talking about it in the classroom. I’m also gearing up to keep my daughter busy with eclipse…

Now, I want to dig into what happens after you’ve identified those patterns. Let’s reflect so that you can really starting changing challenging behaviors in the classroom. Part of this system is a reflection sheet: This reflection starts by exploring what is working WELL for this child already – what parts of the day are they successfully able to manage their behavior?

    A Blog Post about Blog Posts

    I know that’s quite the title for a post, but it’s the best way I can think to describe what I want to share here! I’ve been thinking a lot about how I can use this space to support those of you are serving so many different roles in the early care and education field – especially those of you who are childcare professionals. I love sharing fun posts about activities, projects, and printables – but these are the easy things. There are so many great ideas already available, and to be honest I know that coming up with things to do with children isn’t the hardest part of the…

    My favorite things – 2022 Edition

    I can’t say goodbye to 2022 without sharing my favorite Amazon purchases! I love to review these because they say so much about the things that were on my mind throughout the year. It’s like a little time capsule right there in my order history. Here are the items that I’d definitely recommend: Printable vinyl sticker paper – I taught myself how to make stickers with my Cricut, and I’ve gone through so much of this printable vinyl! It’s really easy to use and prints really well. Instant Frother – I’ve really been trying to kick the Starbucks habit (or at least reign it in a little), and this has…
