  • 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.
  • The rumble of a garbage truck….. Dogs barking in the night….. Fireworks in celebration of the 4th of July…… Our world is full of different sounds – loud, soft and in between. Noise can be found all around us. We hear different things every day, from birds singing in the morning (early!) to the sounds of people coming home from work in the evening. Teaching young children to listen to and recognize the various sounds in their world is a skill that can help them stay safe as they grow up and go out into the greater world. This awareness of sounds not only helps keep us safe, but it also enriches our world. In this Unit, children explore sound and noise through hands-on activities by: • Taking a neighborhood ‘noise’ walk • Experimenting with sound using boxes, cans and tubs as drums • Building a wooden tower … until it comes crashing down • Making a noise maker for different celebrations Take the time to really listen and hear all of the beautiful sounds in our world.
  • Turn empty space into a construction zone
  • Explore the workers in the community
  • Roses really, really red….. The sky so big and blue ….. Yellow sun means lots of fun Bright colors for me and you …… Making up color poems are fun and easy, with so many colorful things in our world. Just look around! Color brings a lot of joy and excitement to our world. But color can also be used to learn math and counting skills, and for scientific exploration! Color is also a great tool for developing vocabulary and descriptive language skills. The more senses children use in their exploration, the more likely they are to retain valuable information. This Unit helps children explore color through: • Discovering what happens when your mix paint • Counting and matching colors • Using colored noodles to make great creations Add a little color to your day every day and see what happens!
  • Discover the changes Fall brings
  • Clouds

    $12.00
    Puffy as marshmallows ….. Streaks across the sky ….. Playing peek-a-boo with the sun ..… Clouds can be a sign of things to come, or a sculpture in the sky. No matter what, they play an important part in our weather. On a warm spring or summer day, it is great fun for children to lay on their backs and gaze up into the clouds to ‘see what they can see’. Children that can ‘see’ various things in the clouds are more apt to look at other things in their world with more imagination and interest. Teaching children to really look at things in their world helps them to become better observers, and to develop language skills to describe what they see. Exploring clouds provides many learning experiences for children. Through hands-on activities, children: • Learn about the different types of clouds • Explore how a cloud is made through a great science experiment • Strengthen fine motor muscles and coordination • Use their imagination to ‘see’ sculptures in the sky Children are so open to new ideas and learning. Showing them how to discover pictures in clouds is an activity that they can do for the rest of their lives.
  • Caterpillars

    $12.00
    Green and chubby ... Poky spikes ... Brown and fuzzy ... Caterpillars come in all different colors, shapes and forms, and children love to collect them! Caterpillars provide a very close-up examination of the small creatures that live in our world. Children can study small eco-systems by catching a caterpillar and setting up an environment for it, complete with the correct food, water and a branch. If you are lucky, the caterpillar may spin a cocoon or turn into a chrysalis - wait a few weeks and you may hatch a moth or butterfly! Through hands-on activities in this Unit, children:
    • Discover the difference between cocoons and chrysalises
    • Use a special 'inchworm' ruler to measure various items
    • Practice fine motor skills by making a button caterpillar
    Explore caterpillars with your children and re-discover the joys of childhood.
  • Buttoning Up

    $12.00
    Coats, jackets and shirts ….. Big, little, round and square ….. Insert, push and pull …… Buttons can be a challenge for all of us sometimes! Learning to button, zip and tie are major accomplishments for children as they develop independence through mastering self-help skills. Providing opportunities for lots of practice ensures that children are able to master these skills. Children that are competent in taking care of their basic needs feel better about themselves and develop confidence in their abilities, which in turn supports school readiness. Buttons are an easy material to access. Through hands-on activities, children: • Discover what items of clothing have buttons • Practice math skills through graphing buttons • Use buttons as a material for creativity • Practice buttoning as they make a cool headband The more children have the opportunity to manipulate buttons, the better they will be at being able to dress independently – and that is a goal we are working towards! NOTE: Activities using buttons should be closely supervised; size of buttons should be appropriate for ages of children
