Back To School!

With the advent of a new school year, it's the ideal time to make sure you have all the materials you need for your assessment system.

Remember to stock up on Checklist Folders, Lesson Plans, Portfolio Pads, or anything else you might be running low on. Remember to browse the Infant & Toddler supporting materials too!

Also, mix up your daily routine by engaging young ones in new activities every week. You can always find FREE, age-appropriate activities on www.TeacherQuickSource.com . Freshen up your day-to-day routine while enriching and expanding the learning possibilities!

Here's a simple and fun back-to-school activity that correlates to POCET™ Developmental Guideline: PH1 Demonstrates Eye-Hand Coordination. This activity is called Pat, Pat, Clap, Clap.

All you will need for the following activity is you, a child, and Get up & Go! Dice.

Let's Get Started:

1. Set up a face-to-face partnership with two children.

2. Teach the children to pat their thighs twice and then clap their hands twice.

3. When the children are comfortable with those motions, add a cross clap with their partner (child claps partner’s right hand with his right hand then repeat with the left hands). The activity would then include pat, pat, clap, clap, cross-clap, cross clap.
