What You’ll Find In This Book

  • Activities to get your child started with the important basics: to develop skills to literally make a mark – first with fingers and later with pens, pencils, and paint brushes.
  • Fun ideas that will help your child develop fine motor strength and dexterity. We have ideas for finger gyms, easel activities, and first mark making activities with sticks, play dough and shaving foam.
  • Inspiration for writing trays that encourage children to use all their senses to build skills.
  • Great ideas to delight in imagination and storytelling that feels like – and is! – play time, not school work. Your child will develop language, vocabulary, and fluency through story mats, small worlds, comics, journals, role play, outdoor adventures, and art.
  • Activities that support your child in understanding himself and others, through interviews, self-portraits, collaborative art, and collaborative projects.
  • And finally we help your child see that everyone can make their mark on their community and the environment. We show you how to extend the idea of our self out into the world, and consider how we are part of a community. With accessible and achievable projects we’ll inspire your child to make their mark through environmental citizenship and acts of kindness.
  • Also included: six sets of printables for you to download, including pattern writing cards, a “my favourite things” photo book, “all about me” interview sheets, pretend play post office accessories, and comic book, and gracious giving printables.
