Between helping with (and having kids involved in) children’s choir, teaching a preschool class on Wednesday nights, teaching piano lessons 3 out of 5 evenings, and all the holiday buzz in general, my December plate is pretty full!
This little learner activity is perfect for emergent readers!
Make coffee. Sip coffee. Savor the first few (and possibly only) quiet moments of the day. Then embrace the chaos.
Our morning routine was…well, not so routine until this last fall.
While working on this dinosaur post series, I thought it might be nice to add a list of our favorite dinosaur books and resources that we’ve found and used throughout our dinosaur unit study.
Dramatic play is so valuable – it’s one of those educational areas I don’t ever want to stop providing – okay, or doing myself, too! Whether for your little kids or you little kids at heart, dramatic play helps develop friendships, fosters creativity and deepens imaginations, and creates opportunities for further growth and learning in other academic areas.
This post is dedicated to dressing up like dinosaurs, and the perfect dinosaur books and activities to use with them while playing!
The storm we were prepping for finally hit!
Of course, the usual indoor activities of Netflix, playing “dinosaur” – a glorified game of chase – and lots of naps have happened too. I’m working hard on being content in the quiet, still moments. I’m glad God reminded me this weekend to slow down a little with this beautiful storm.
So it’s 20 degrees with a windchill of who-knows-let’s-not-go-outside-to-find-out where we live! So with lots of indoor play ahead, I put together this little invitation to play for my library-loving daughter to enjoy.
Is there nothing more cozy and cheery than a warm, bright library at Christmastime?
The Biltmore House photo below inspired this entire post, which is purely eye-candy for book lovers at Christmastime!
If you’re snowed in, grab a warm cup of tea and take comfort in these cozy, Christmas-ready libraries.
