Using Little Passports Early Explorers with a Montessori-Inspired Approach

I’m excited about the new Little Passports Early Explorers edition! I’m a Little Passports affiliate and ambassador. As an ambassador, I received a 3-month subscription to the Early Explorers Edition of Little Passports. Today, I want to share some ideas for using a Montessori-inspired approach with the Early Explorers subscription. Of course, all opinions are my own. (Note: my Little Passports posts contain affiliate links at no cost to you.) Check this out! 2 days only: holiday delivery plus $15 off a 12-month plan with the code JOY15 at checkout! I love the excitement Little Passports can bring to any study of geography. It can work well in a home with children of multiple ages. In my previous Little Passports posts, I shared ideas for using the Little Passports World Edition with preschoolers. Now there are even more options with the new Early Explorers subscription, which is designed for ages […]

Free Kwanzaa Songs and Rhymes for Circle Time

I’ve had a lot of fun finding resources for December holiday songs and rhymes in my free circle time song series! I already published Free Christmas Songs and Rhymes for Circle Time and Free Hanukkah Songs and Rhymes for Circle Time. Today, I’m sharing free songs and rhymes for another special December holiday: Kwanzaa. Kwanzaa is observed from December 26-January 1. It’s a holiday in the United States honoring African heritage and culture. I think it’s important to introduce children to a variety of customs, and Kwanzaa has some lovely customs. If you’d like more information to share with children about Kwanzaa, here are some fun, helpful resources for a variety of ages: Sesame Street: “Kwanzaa” “Kwanzaa” from PBS Kids “What Is Kwanzaa?” by Kwanzaa Media TV “Kwanzaa Symbols” by Kwanzaa Media TV “Seven Principles of Kwanzaa” by the Sunshine Arts Kids “Kwanzaa` Celebration” from WCBD-TV 2 I’m just listing […]

Montessori Monday – Free Gingerbread Printables and Montessori-Inspired Gingerbread Activities

It’s the 15th of the month, and I have a new post at PreK + K Sharing … with some fun Christmas activities using free gingerbread printables! Here, I’m sharing the links to lots of free gingerbread printables for preschoolers through 1st graders (and sometimes older). At PreK + K Sharing, I tell where I found my materials and how I used the printables to prepare Montessori-inspired gingerbread activities. I also have links to other posts with additional ideas and presentations. Free Printables Featured in the Gingerbread Activities at PreK + K Sharing Gingerbread Visual Discrimination Printable from Pre-K Pages Gingerbread Man Color Sort from Making Learning Fun Gingerbread Even or Odd from Mrs. Kelly’s Klass Gingerbread Man Symmetry by Floriane Siegel at Teachers Pay Teachers Gingerbread Holiday Beginning Sounds from Kinders on the Block Gingerbread Common Core Positional Word Daily Writing Activity from The Barefoot Teacher Free Gingerbread Printables […]

Free Hanukkah Songs and Rhymes for Circle Time

I’m continuing the December holiday fun in my free circle time song series! Today, I’m sharing Hanukkah songs and rhymes. I love to introduce children to other religions and cultures, and music is a great way to help young children learn to appreciate differences. If you’d like more information to share with children about Hanukkah, here are some fun, helpful videos for a variety of ages: Sesame Street: “Hanukkah With Veronica Monica” “The Story of Hanukkah” The Maccabeats: “Candlelight” The Maccabeats – “Miracle” “Hanukkah Songs” “Chanukah Jewish Rock of Ages” – Official Hanukkah Song (Video) There are many great CDs you can buy, but I’m just listing free resources here. You can typically find links to buy the CDs for songs on YouTube if you wish. These are songs that I’ve found online for a variety of ages. Hanukkah Songs and Rhymes “Dreidel, Dreidel, Dreidel with lyrics” by The Learning […]

Favorite CDs for Babies and Toddlers {Gift Guide}

Welcome to the December 2014 Carnival of Natural Parenting: Greatest Gifts This post was written for inclusion in the monthly Carnival of Natural Parenting hosted by Hobo Mama and Code Name: Mama. This month our participants have suggested go-to gifts and gifting experiences for the holiday season for all your loved ones. *** Music was one of my favorite curriculum areas with young children. I always had lots of fun singing songs and accompanying them on guitar. As the grandma of a 12-month old, I’ve had a great time reacquainting myself with some favorite CDs (originally cassettes) of mine and my now-adult kids from when they were little. I actually still kept our favorite cassette tapes, so my granddaughter, Zoey, is one of the few babies today who listens to a lot of music on cassette. Of course, I do have some CDs, and I’ve purchased a few for Zoey […]

Thank you for the red ribbon, Deb! I'm fairly new to actually participating here, so I'm a  little nervous (read: humbled by the depth of knowledge and experience of other members). I'm a big fan of your site, too. =)

 

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
