August is finally here! Once again, the summer seems to have flown by and the first day of school is just around the corner. As exciting as the beginning of the school year is, it can be equally as stressful. To reduce some of this stress, try starting early and get as much done as you can now, so you won’t have to worry about it the night before the kids arrive.
If your brain is still on vacation at the beach and you’re having trouble thinking of ideas for new, fun learning activities, do not worry…just take a deep breath and check out this great website we found for both teachers and daycare providers: http://www.first-school.ws/
This site offers a wide array of fun things to do with children between the ages of 2 and 6 years old. These activities are especially great for helping younger children prepare for their first time attending preschool, child care, or day care, and it also offers suggestions to parents and teachers on how to comfort them during this transition. From lesson plans, worksheets, and flash cards, to printable crafts, posters, and tips, this website has everything you need to start the school year off right. So stop procrastinating, get out those unfinished lesson plans, and get going to make this year even better than the last!
