Kids Playing & Learning

I received this poem from my son’s Pre-K teacher and wanted to share it with all you other moms who have little ones heading off to school!

Thanks Miss Laura – you are the best:)

Just Playing

By Anita Wadley

When I’m a building in the block room,
Please don’t say, “I’m just playing”
For, you see, I’m learning as I play
About balance and shapes.

I have come up with a packet of tips and tools that I plan to use this summer and that I think other busy mom’s will appreciate also!
