As a busy teacher-mom, I created these activities as a fun way to teach, connect, and play with my own little one at the end of a long day. Kids learn best through play, so it was important for me to provide my own child with a variety of activities that we could pull out and change up as needed. I also created these activities to align with my state’s (Georgia) early learning and development standards for ages 24-36 months. The standards covered throughout these activities include, but are not limited to, one-to-one correspondence, building knowledge of numbers and quantities, using senses to explore the environment and process information, fine motor skills, self-expression, demonstrating persistence, following directions, acquiring vocabulary, nonverbal communication, developing print awareness, classification, exploring spatial relationships, developing knowledge of the properties of Earth and the sky, and making connections between objects and ideas.
Create sensory bins, flashcards, and binder activities using the resources in this product. I recommend printing on cardstock and laminating, or placing in a protective sleeve, to make the activities more durable. The activities all come in color, to create visual interest, but can be printed in gray-scale by changing the properties on your printer.
My best advice for using these activities with your little learner is to have fun! Do I expect that my kiddo will sit and engage with me for hours... no way! If it is no longer fun for him, or I, we stop! Again, I whole heartedly believe that learning occurs through play and play should be fun! I do not expect, or force, him to be able to do everything in this product each and everyday. I simply use these activities as an opportunity to spend quality time together. I just love watching him explore! Toddlers are unique and can surprise you! All you have to do is encourage and interact with them, and you may just learn something too!
