  • ‘Olivia Forms A Band’ Unit Book by Ian Falconer Marching bands and parades ….. Picnic on a blanket under the stars ….. Fireworks on the 4th of July …… Summer memories usually include at least one of these happenings! Olivia wants to be sure that her memory of the 4th of July includes a marching band …. even if she is the one providing it!! Not only is this book about a common summer event many of us attend, it also shows how determination and problem solving can make things happen. Through this book, children can see how Olive solved her problem, hopefully encouraging them to find solutions to solve problems that they encounter. Music is a huge part of summer. There are a lot of fun learning activities that include music on all levels. Through hands-on activities, children: • Create their own ‘one-man’ band in a math game • Explore the different tones of ‘musical glasses’ • Move their bodies to music using scarves, ribbons and paper plate ‘skates’ Olivia is a well-loved children’s literary character. Children will delight in her ability to create her own ‘music’.
  • Trains

    $12.00
    Children love trains!  There is something magical and engaging about hooking one train car to another, and moving along a track.  Children make trains out of boxes, chairs, their toys and each other.  Although most children do not have access to ‘climb aboard’ a train, most do live close enough to a train track to have watched a train go by!   Many early childhood and school readiness skills can be addressed through this fascination with trains.  Through hands-on activities, children: ·       Learn about the size of a train engine ·       Use laminated train cars to spell their name, other words or put the alphabet letters in order ·       Make a ‘train’ whistle ·       Go on a pretend train ride   Although most children do not have access to ‘climb aboard’ a train, most do live close enough to a train track to watch a train go by.  Taking a ‘trip’ on a cardboard box sparks imagination and creativity, encourages language and vocabulary development, and helps children acquire cognitive skills.
  • Fall

    $12.00
    Acorns falling from the trees ….. Squirrels and bees gathering food ….. Vibrant leaves and crisp foggy mornings …… All of these signal the change of seasons from summer to fall. The change in seasons can be invigorating. Summer may have gotten long and hot. Now that it is cooler in the morning, children can get outside and exercise those large muscles as they play running games, ride bikes, and go for long nature walks. Be sure to encourage children to find those changes in the season – squirrels scurrying around looking for nuts, leaves turning color and falling to the ground, and birds gathering together for their fall migration. Fall is a time of discovery and outdoor fun. Through hands-on activities, children: • Explore different fall items in a Sensory Box • Use crayon resist painting to create a fall tree • Listen and move to special directions while playing a Leaf Game Cooler days, sunny skies and wispy clouds herald in a beautiful fall day. Get out and enjoy!!

  • Earth Wise

    $12.00
    This world is for our children to inherit.  We need to teach them it is as important to care for it as it is important to care for their toys or pets.  Help them start by celebrating Earth Day!
  • Sharing stories and secrets….. Discovering hidden treasures on a neighborhood ‘expedition’….. Making up games in the back yard…… Many of us have memories of doing these things with childhood friends. Learning what makes a good friend, and learning how to be a good friend is something that we should be teaching our youngest children. The character traits that make up a good friend are the same ones that will help alleviate bullying in the classroom. We need to help children feel special and that they are a valuable, contributing member to the group. This nurtures a sense of ‘community’ which promotes kindness, understanding of others, celebrating accomplishments, and the goal of working together. Learning about being a friend is a fun and joyful experience. Through hands-on activities, children: • Concretely see how each person is an important member of the group when they take ‘attendance’ • Practice measuring skills as they see how tall they and their friends are • Create a group ‘friendship quilt’ where every square is unique • Work their large muscles in an action game The more children are involved with each other in positive activities, the more they will see how valuable each child is to the group… and that everyone can be friends!
  • The Rainforest Unit of Study Highlights Lush green canopy ….. Brilliant colored parrots ….. Frogs, and bugs, and butterflies abound …… These are memories many adults have of summer outdoor camping. The rainforest is a land of bright colors, exotic animals and lush greenery. The rainforest provides the world with many resources and products. It is also an ecological system that is endangered by the continued development of human beings. The rainforest is a great eco system for children to learn about environmental conservation. Through hands-on activities, children: • Use a ‘rain’ ruler to measure items, comparing them to the amount of rainfall that makes a rainforest • Explore the layers of the rainforest and what lives in each layer • Make a rain stick • Practice fine motor – scissors skills through cutting a spiral jungle vine The rainforest is an important ecological system for our world. Help children learn to love it and protect it!
  • The field of early childhood education and care has changed dramatically over the last few decades. In today’s world, standards for children based on developmental domains are the foundation for quality early childhood education and care.  These early learning standards have a foundation in child development milestones and define what a child knows or can do at specific ages or stages.  Most states either have a set of early learning standards or are in the process of developing them.  This curriculum will help you implement purposeful and intentional programming.
