Free Back-to-School Songs and Rhymes for Circle Time

I always loved circle time with preschoolers, and I’ve been having a wonderful time sharing fun songs with my now-9-month-old grandbaby. So this school year, I want to publish a series of free songs and rhymes for circle time. I had a post previously with Free Educational Songs for Circle Time. That post had songs for any time of year. This series will have circle time songs, rhymes, and fingerplays for specific seasons or events throughout the year. The songs in today’s post work well at any time of year, but they’re especially helpful at the beginning of the school year. There are lots of wonderful CDs you can buy that I absolutely love (and used both as a teacher and homeschooler), but I’m just listing free resources here. You can typically find links to buy the CDs for songs on YouTube if you wish. These are songs that I’ve […]

I’m excited to host a great back-to-school giveaway of the Trillium Montessori 7 Continents A-Z Bundle which sells for $50 on Teachers Pay Teachers. 3 lucky winners from anywhere in the world will win a download of Seemi’s 7 Continents A-Z Bundle!

Montessori Monday – Shark Water-Bead Number or Letter Sensory Bin

I had so much fun with Shark Week activities that I had to prepare one more. This activity – a shark water-bead number and letter sensory bin – needed its own post. Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links (at no cost to you). Shark Water-Bead Number and Letter Sensory Bin This is an activity that would work well for an ocean unit study or for a more specific shark unit study. I decided to use the free shark-fin printables from “Shark in the Park Alphabet Game” by Juggling with Kids for a sensory bin. I used a shoebox-size storage container from the Dollar Tree for the sensory bin. I like that size because it fits well in a small space and is easy to carry to and from the shelf. Cassie from 3 Dinosaurs used blue and turquoise water beads for her shark sensory bin. I love using water beads […]
