Gigi, my 5 year old wants to know everything about....EVERYTHING! Questions, questions, questions. all. the.time. I love her inquisitive nature and her thirst for knowledge, but boy can it be exhausting answering every question she has. So in order to help both of us out and turn her curious mind into actual factual learning we made together an "Everyday Board". There are 2 important aspects of the everyday she needs and wants to know- Weather and Time, and they are broken down on the board in 5 different ways
1. Weather: What does it look like outside (i.e. foggy, sunny etc.)
2. Weather: What does it feel like outside (hot, cold, freezing etc.)
3: Time: Days of the Week
4. Time: Number days in a month
5. Time: Months of the Year
There are many "moving parts" to the chart in order to encourage them to be interactive and help reinstate what you are learning.
There is weather panels to interchange, clothes pin clips to move around, and days of the month to cross off
Gigi is excited everyday to physically "do something" and apply her learning.
Below the everyday board is above her table and chairs- in order to encourage her to keep learning and creating. She LOVES drawing and coloring, so I made an easy way to store her markers and crayons-
I pizazzed some jars I already have by painting the lids and adding washi tape.
Gigi is very proud of her learning space in the house.
I printed all the materials at home and laminated them. You can find all the printables I used at the following links:
