This week in our Tot School A to Z series, S is for spider!
We’ve outlined a week of play and learning activities for you. These plans will cover a variety of skills for toddlers and preschoolers including language, cognitive, creative, math, science and sensory exploration. The play activities are more child-directed and the learning activities would be more appropriate for preschool-age children and require a little more planning and direction.
