Are you looking for fun Valentine’s Day Activities for Preschool to get your kiddos excited to start the holiday? Morning tubs are often used as students are coming in and settling in for the day. Kids are engaged while take home folders are being opened and checked, attendance is being taken, and those types of daily tasks. Math and Literacy Centers are great for a couple of reasons.
- Socialization: Math and Literacy Centers 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. Math and Literacy Centers 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.
