Pre-K Theme for a Day is a series of mini teaching topics that are focused towards preschool and Pre-K learners. Although the activities are written to cover one full day of activities and related games, centers and other printables, there are enough ideas to extend the theme longer if needed.

Instantly ready to use. Very few additional items are needed to present the activities besides basic art supplies and cardstock. Use the centers from year to year. This series of teaching units saves time and money, and all activities are solidly supported by the foundational concepts leading to the Common Core Kindergarten standards. You can slide a unit effortlessly into your usual curriculum lesson plans when you are in a hurry, or you can use the units as a central focus of your curriculum.
