Learning Activities


A few key items to always have on hand include: a personal laminating machine, white board and dry erase markers, and page protectors.  We use these over and over again for preparation and play.

Most of the activities that I will feature can be completed with basic arts and crafts supplies: glue, scissors, watercolor and tempera paints, crayons, etc.

For every activity listed below, I will include a materials list specific to that activity and resource links to print any materials needed.
