April 21st is National Kindergarten Day. Are you a parent looking for a special thank you for your child's Kindergarten teacher? OR are you a teacher or parent looking for Kindergarten and early childhood learning resources?
Kindergarten learning includes lots of fun, hands-on play, the reading of stories, singing of songs, and exposure to environmental print. Children develop a stronger knowledge of the association between letters, sounds, and words. In mathematics K activities include developing a strong number sense. In K there are also reading, writing, and math lessons designed to develop the basic academic skills that are key to success in the elementary grades.
We have a ton of early education learning resources for children, teachers, and parents. Today we will share a few teacher and homeschool educator favorites for Kindergarten.
