A snail on this leaf, a bird in that pond… how many other plants, animals, and other living things do you think you can spy in an afternoon? Join us for Spring Explorers on April 10 or 18 as we explore the natural wonders of Central Park!
Led by educators from the American Natural History Museum and Bitty City Players, our brave bitty explorers will use their five senses to find, count, and interact with the flora and fauna around them. We’ll also play movement and theater games and make nature crafts -- and of course, everyone will be wearing masks and staying safe, too, because that’s what intrepid explorers and scientists do in a pandemic.
Come explore with us!
Caregivers and family are welcome for all ages, but we do ask that children ages 3 and under be accompanied by an adult.
Questions? Need support with registration? Shoot us an email and we'll be happy to help out.
Happy Wednesday! Danielle here. This is a list of my top five Material Must-Haves in any early childhood classroom. These materials make my life so much easier and ultimately save my class and school money.
Note: we do not receive any commission for these recommendations, they’re just products we love, and links to places we found them at a good value.
Reusable Dry Erase Pockets
These are the best! Forget having to laminate EVERYTHING your students use, just slip a sheet of paper in one of these and they’re ready to go. Organize them by student or by topic, just slide the new sheets in front of the old (or use double-sided). Sturdier than a sheet protector, more portable and versatile than a dry-erase board.
In addition to student use, I like to pin them up (with the grommet at the top) to use for erasable class signs like "There are __ days until Thanksgiving!" I also use them in place of a folder sometimes, to store sheets or activity-prep materials together, easily see what's inside, and label it without using up a post-it every time I change the contents. Also sold (sometimes more cheaply) as shop tickets.
