What Our Subscribers Say:

I just wanted to drop you a line to let you know how much I appreciate your site. I am a teacher who has taken an extended leave from my job to stay at home with my two girls (ages 3 and 1 1/2). Your site has opened up a fun and interesting world to us as we stay home together. I appreciate the quality of the materials as well as the variety available. I love the theme idea and was doing it on my own before I found your site. Now I get the theme ideas from you and just roll with the ideas you put forward. We joined as a member because I wanted full access to the materials. The price is definitely not too expensive for the materials you provide. Keep up the great effort!"

Language and Literacy Activities

Develop Your Child's Interest In Reading. Reading is the most important skill a child will ever learn.

Reading skills are critical for preschool learning and childhood development. By developing an interest in reading, you'll instill the desire to learn to read. Our resources contain fun and age-appropriate literacy activities and emergent reader booklets for children to color and share. Finger plays, rhymes, songs, and felt stories are another fun way to help your children develop the vocabulary they will need as they enter school and begin to read.

Math Activities, Games, and Worksheets

Learning and using early math skills help children to make sense of the world around them and to develop their ability to reason and to problem solve.

A preschooler must grasp several key concepts to set a foundation for math. Using mathematical concepts is a natural part of young children's play and daily activities. Through play, children explore mathematical concepts such counting, sorting, measuring, classifying, comparing quantities, and recognizing shapes and patterns.

Our resources contain printable lesson plans, activities, folder games, and preschool ideas for teaching math with manipulatives. Our worksheets provide children with the opportunity to practice their learned skills: Numbers, Shapes, Measurement, Patterns, Counting, and Simple Additions and Substractions.

Arts and Crafts Projects

Let your child explore his/her creative mind and develop and strengthen necessary fine motor skills.

Printable art and craft projects will stimulate your child's imagination and creativity. Arts and crafts activities help the development of fine and gross motor skills in young children. Our resources contain printable step-by-step instructions, patterns, and pictures of each art or craft project! All our projects use craft materials that can be easily found around the house or bought in any craft store such as construction paper, pompoms, craft sticks, wiggly eyes, pipe cleaners, and recycled materials like old cereal boxes and paper rolls.

Pre-writing Skills, Fine Motor Skills, and Gross Motor Skills Activities

Before learning to write, it is important that children practice tracing and drawing with a pencil or crayon to gain basic pencil-control skills. These pre-writing skill activities lead to the ability to form letters and numbers.

Use our printable preschool activities, coloring pages, tracing worksheets, and writing worksheets to support your young children's fine motor development and help them build the strength and dexterity (quick and precise movements and coordination of the hands and fingers) necessary to hold a pencil appropriately. Indoor and outdoor games help develop your preschool children's ability and gross motor skills through various activities and songs.
