Lessons and Learning for Littles
ABOUTWelcome! I’m Connie, the founder, teacher, and mom running Lessons and Learning for Littles. I’m the mom of two little ones, who are 19 months apart, a wife and dog-mom, who loves being outside. I enjoy taking pictures, camping, gardening, spending time with my family, crafts, and warm (or hot) weather.
Core ValuesI believe in playful learning activities and learning through play.Childhood should be fun. And, kids learn best through play.I also believe in making it easy for parents and caregivers to help young children learn at home. I also believe that children can be properly educated and prepared for school through what they learn at home.
ResourcesA playful learning activity occurs when children learn through play. It’s something children enjoy doing and are able to explore and be creative on their own. There are often very few directions or guidelines because it’s an open-ended activity.Art ideas, tips, and strategies for little ones of all ages.
Why Lessons and Learning for Littles?Lessons and Learning for Littles is unique because it’s designed to encompass multiple ways of learning and approaching tasks, while looking at all subject areas (STEAM- science, technology, engineering, art, math; reading, writing, physical activity, music), as well as building the skills necessary to be successful in kindergarten and beyond. I incorporate skills like fine motor skills and visual integration into play-based activities so that our littlest learners have opportunities for creative, exploratory, and process-based play. And, I make it easy for you to do activities at home with your toddler or preschooler (or both!).
Next Steps...Please take a look around my site! You’ll love seeing new ideas and ways to get more bang for your buck by incorporating a lot of “stuff” into one lesson or activity, all done while your little one plays! I’d love to hear how the activities went for you and any variations you came up with. And, as always, please let me know if you have any questions. I’d love to hear from you. Make sure you visit my Work with Me page to see what my current FREE offers are!
