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 […]

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.
