  Create the "spark", and learning happens.

Interest, motivation, curiosity, engagement, attention, connection - whatever you want to call it - there HAS to be a spark to transform the mind from "not here" to "here". From unfocused, to laser sharp. From "don't want to", to WOW!

A note to all my wonderful "KidSparkers"!

I thought you might like to know that I have been busy writing and designing an extensive new curriculum series, called "Pre-K Theme for a Day".  It is not available on this site yet, but I do have all the parts that I have created already, over in the KidSparkz store on the TeacherspayTeachers web site.  If you have a minute, head on over and take a look.  

I will be gradually duplicating all the new activity files that I have at TeacherspayTeachers here on the main KidSparkz site, and I know that you all (especially the Members) will be very glad about that.  As always, if you have any questions at all, please email me.

Susan

Comprehensive Toddler Curriculum for the Year

(18 through 36 months)

  • A  comprehensive developmentally appropriate learning program for children aged 18 months through 36 months, and their teachers, caregivers, and parents - over 1600 pages!
  • 62 separate themes that are intrinsically interesting to young children.

Hover the mouse over the written activities to find links to related games and printables. 
  • Each theme contains between 18 and 45 pages.   The linked printables are not worksheets – they are hands-on games and learning activities that you print and make, to use with the children.
  • For each theme, there are activities for Creative Art; Songs and Finger Plays; Language and Early Literacy; Number and Logical Thinking; Science and Nature; Sensory Discrimination; and Physical Development. There is also a list of quality books (available at a library), and a theme poster for each theme.  There are enough activities to last for at least a year, they can be repeated any number of times, and can be used with older preschool children, or those with special needs.
  • 4 sets of age appropriate teaching posters for Letters, Numbers, Colors and Shapes
  • Simply written and easy to use, with little or no preparation time, using only supplies and equipment found in a normal home or classroom, plus a short list of creative art and activity supplies.
  • Addresses all current learning/curriculum standards for ages 18 months through 36 months, and is based on the comprehensive Washington State Standards, and NAEYC recommendations.
  • The Curriculum is created in Adobe PDF file format, and is sent to you as a digital download link, OR recorded on a CD and mailed to you.  All pages in the curriculum can be printed and used as many times as needed, for any number of children. Works with both PC and Mac computers
