So many uses for plain old PVC pipe! It can be used to make obstacle courses, water pipelines, a play house, a physics ramp, a musical instrument, child-sized chairs, bowling pins, or a dramatic play "car wash." These are developmentally appropriate experiences because they are active, hands-on, promote gross motor development, provide opportunities for social cooperation, and enhance curriculum in various areas such as math and science. by britney

Have you ever wondered what exactly your child needs to know before kindergarten? This is simply a guide…not something to stress about!   Finally, all areas of development are of equal importance to young children! Gross motor and social development tasks are just as important as cognitive and pre-reading tasks at this age. by eliza

I created this monthly lesson plan for my Toddler Classroom. I found it hard to find a good lesson plan I could follow in my class so I decided to format and create my own. It is a pretty thorough lesson plan that includes activities in the following developmental areas: Gross Motor, Fine Motor, Language Development (Vocabulary), Social/Emotional, Sensory Exploration, and Art. I also found songs that correlate with the theme and the lyrics to those songs are included in this download. by joy
