What Our Subscribers Say:

I just happened upon your website this morning and signed up immediately. After teaching pre-k for over 15 years I have used many different resources to keep my lessons fun and exciting for the children. You had many different ideas that I had not seen before and I downloaded many right away. I am sure you will prove to be an invaluable tool for new ideas. I was especially pleased with the balance between activities. Thanks for a great find. I look forward to using it often!

Take your children on a nature walk. Encourage them to pay close attention to the things that they see, hear, smell, taste, and feel on the walk. Stop at various points along the way and invite volunteers to share what they sense. Point out interesting sights, smells, and sounds as is appropriate. Halfway through the walk, stop and provide a healthful snack, such as raisins, pretzels, or fruit.
