As a teacher, this is of course my favorite section! Here, you will find posts related to helping my little man learn. Most of the posts will be theme related in order to let little man experience and expand his knowledge of all different things!
During my themed posts, I try to hit different areas of learning, including: Language/Literacy, Mathematics/Cognitive Skills, Science/Sensory, Motor, Art, and Music. Little man is still very small, so these activities are quick and easy. Also, I know that my days (like many of yours) are busy and crazy, so I may only get to one of the activities a day. The themes are meant to be done weekly, and it usually takes me that long! Although, I will say that we do repeat the songs, and I try to repeat some of the other areas. Obviously, you can do these activities any way you want! Just have fun!
