It's only fair to share...Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterPin on PinterestShare on RedditShare on StumbleUponShare on TumblrEmail this to someone

This is a curriculum book that no preschool teacher (or homeschooler) should be without! Each activity even includes what center it could be used at! (Circle time, Art area, etc.) It lists words that you can introduce to the children through the activity, as well as what to do, what you need, what to do for more, & involving parents! Age appropriateness is cited, and the table of contents breaks the activities into themes. A very useful tool!

This one really came in handy for that outside play time when you just want to add a little structure to it! Some great activities for preschoolers! It’s sectioned into themes, like “The Wonderful World of Make-Believe,” “Wheels, Wheels, Wheels,” “Dig It-Things to do with Sand & Mud,” & much more! And each activity tells what age its appropriate for as well as what materials are needed, what to do, what to do for more, and what they can learn from the activity.

Another terrific preschool curriculum book! This book is divided into topic areas…”Science Center Activities,” “Construction & Measurement,” “Circle Time…” etc…Age appropriateness is mentioned, as well as words to introduce, things you’ll need, what to do, & what to do for more. A good book for bringing science into the preschool classroom! Many of the activities can also be adjusted for older kids, also.

BOOK REVIEW: Sharing Nature With Children

This is a fantastic book to get ideas for activities to do with children, to teach an appreciation of nature. I’ve used some of these activities while teaching…but they are designed also for parents.
