What is The INSTANT Themes Packet?

Thanks so much for showing interest in my INSTANT Themes packet! The INSTANT Themes packet are designed with preschool and kindergarten teachers in mind. The INSTANT Themes packet offers a set engaging and hands-on material per theme set. The material can used for a single week, two weeks, or easily be expanded over a longer academic period. Teachers can also rearrange the INSTANT theme packets into the order they desire. The idea of The INSTANT Themes packet is you can completely transform your teaching with FUN and engaging, yet still rigorous, lessons. This packet offers both clip art and REALISTIC PICTURES! The INSTANT Themes packet is completely comprehensive, so the only thing you’ll need to add in is a few hands-on items/manipulatives!

The INSTANT Theme packets are teacher-created, kid-tested, and most importantly kid-approved! The INSTANT Theme packets takes away that monotonous way of teaching which students sit and listen to the teacher TEACH. Instead, the INSTANT Theme packets encourage guidance from the teacher while the students EXPLORE and LEARN through hands-on and engaging activities that utilize all modes of learning.
