Are your little learners ready for spring break? Are they having difficulty staying focused? A Roam the Room activity may be just what they need to expend some of that extra energy while still addressing academic skills.
I have a FREE Round the Room math activity to share. Easter Egg Fun Subtract the Room will get your little ones up and engaged in mastering subtraction facts to 10.
Just print the cards and copy the recording pages. Learners carry a clipboard with the record sheet and a pencil as they search the classroom for the task cards. They record their responses in the correct spaces on the page.
I hope that you and your learners enjoy this activity.
Here is a fun FREE math activity to keep your little learners engaged on a long winter day. To get the most out of instructional time and learning resources, I love to address more than one area with a single activity. This resource addresses counting skills and enhances fine motor development.
Just download this no-prep printable from the link above. Put some paint in a small plate and add a cotton swab. This fun math activity is now ready to use!
Looking for a book to share with your class about Martin Luther King? Explaining the social injustices of the past in a developmentally appropriate manner can be difficult. This book describes a childhood incident in Martin Luther King’s life that will help little learners begin to develop an insight of the inequalities that were accepted by many at the time. Children will immediately recognize how unfair it is that young Martin’s friend Bobby is forbidden to play with Martin and that they must attend different schools.
The book is one of a series of books about the Childhood of Famous Americans. The story is beautifully illustrated. The Book is a Level 2 book of the Ready To Read books.

A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holiday movies! I have wonderful memories of watching this with my son. No matter how many times I watch this movie, I still laugh when I watch the chair fight scene.
I have a FREE Add the Room resource to share with you.
I love “Roam the Room” type activities for little learners. This one was especially fun for me to create since I love fall and pumpkins. I like that learners count the seeds on the pumpkins to determine the addition equation.
I hope you and your learners enjoy this activity.

Thanks for stopping by for a visit. Pull a chair up to campfire and help yourself to some marshmallows and a roasting stick. I will tell you a little bit about myself while you are enjoying the marshmallows.
My name is Tami Steele. I have 35 years experience working with young children in Georgia. I have taught kindergarten and first grade. Most of my experience has been in kindergarten. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Early Childhood Education from LaGrange College, a Master of Science degree in Early Childhood Education and a Specialist in Education degree in Early Childhood Education. The Masters and Specialist degrees are from West Georgia College, now West Georgia State University.
I am a staunch advocate of developmentally appropriate instructional practices for young children. I believe young children learn best by taking an active role in their learning through exploration and play.
I plan to use this blog to share my experiences with you and learn from your experiences you share with me. I will be sharing posts of interest to teachers, parents, and homeschooling families. I hope my posts will offer helpful hints and fun activities for little learners. I love books and plan to share posts about books. I will occasionally share posts about travel and recipes. I look forward to getting to know you.
