Looking for January Morning Tub Activities?
The January tubs are filled with fun holiday themes like candy canes, gumdrops, and reindeer. Kids will get to enjoy fun hands-on learning while building basic skills for counting, alphabet, shapes, colors, fine motor, and more.
Morning tubs are great for a couple of reasons.
- Building Independence: Kids are able to work on their own or in small groups at their table to use their bin(s). It encourages them to self-start and learn/play on their own.
- Socialization: Morning tubs give kids a chance to work together in small groups. They get to share pieces, solve problems together, and even just talk, play, and learn for a few minutes with a couple of their tablemates.
- Creativity and Play: Creativity is something we can build and increase by spending time working on it. Morning tubs are a perfect way to introduce a little more play and freedom into learning rather than traditional worksheets or morning work that kept kids busy but did not encourage creativity and play.
You can use the same morning tubs for an entire month or you can switch them out by theme. I would recommend rotating them by table or group so that children don’t use the same tub more than once a week.
