  • Vehicle painting: this book is a perfect fit with one of my favorite activities. 涂一些红色, 黄色的, 还有盘子上的绿色油漆, let your child drive cars and trucks through the paint and then on paper to make some cool art. 

  • 玩红灯, Green Light: this game could get pretty cut-throat in elementary schools, 但对于年幼的孩子来说,这是一个伟大的

  • Pile in the bed: let your child collect a bunch of their favorite stuffed animals and/or dolls and see how many you can pile on top of them before they all fall over.

“这是什么? 一个种子的故事”和活动

By 艾莉施普林格 2021年5月11日

这是什么? 一个种子的故事 

卡罗琳·莫克福德 

Video 的女士. 艾莉正在读故事.

  • 感官游戏:把一个箱子装满泥土, 一些较大的种子,比如向日葵, 南瓜/南瓜或豆类, 还有小水桶和铲子, 或者你也可以在浴缸里装满草或鸟食. If you have a magnifying glass, these are great to add to a seed sensory bin. If there are different types of seeds in your bin, your child can sort them in a muffin

“猫头鹰宝宝”活动

By 艾莉施普林格 2021年3月8日

猫头鹰的婴儿

马丁·瓦德尔,帕特里克·本森 

  • 关于猫头鹰的趣事:猫头鹰是夜行动物, meaning they are awake and active at night and sleep during the day. 它们吃虫子、蛇和小动物,比如老鼠. 猫头鹰不能移动它们的眼睛, so to see things on their sides they have to turn their heads—almost all the way around in a full circle. 猫头鹰的听力很好. 一群猫头鹰叫做议会.

和孩子们谈论种族和种族主义

By 艾莉施普林格 2020年6月8日

Race and racism are tough for adults to talk about in this country, and many adults think that by not talking to children about race, 他们长大后将是“色盲”,而不是种族主义者. But the truth is that children begin to notice racial differences as early as 6 months, 因为种族主义和偏见确实存在于我们的社会中, 孩子们看到它并学习它. By the time they are preschool age, children can internalize racial biases

与儿童在线资源隔离

By 艾莉施普林格 2020年3月18日

I know there are a lot of posts on social media about websites, apps, videos, etc. to keep kids busy and learning during the coronavirus quarantine, but I wanted to put together a list of some of the best ones I found that were really good for young children. It is of course not comprehensive, but hopefully it gives you a place to start. 如果我不说什么都做不到,那就是失职了

By 艾莉施普林格 2019年12月23日

我(看护者)在游戏小组中应该做什么?

首先,要巴黎人线路检测中心其中. 请尽量不要玩手机.

玩 with your child and talk to other adults in the group. 与房间里的其他成年人交流, those you know and those you don’t yet—remember you are all caring for young children and may have ways to support one another.

转换

You have probably heard about transitions being hard for young children. Or, 如果你还没听过, you have probably noticed that some of the hardest times with your child are times when you are moving from one activity to another—getting out of the house, going to bed—or when any big changes happen in their lives. 过渡对所有孩子来说都很难, and they can be especially difficult for some children, 取决于他们

所有的感觉都可以

By 艾莉施普林格 2019年7月3日

一位我非常了解和尊敬的老师说:我们不停止快乐,为什么要停止悲伤?我喜欢这句话, as it highlights how we as adults often try to stop children from expressing "negative" emotions like sadness, 恐惧, 或愤怒. Our culture in general discourages us all from expressing those feelings. But we all have a range of emotions, and we can't be happy all the time!
