tschildplaying10 Free Resources for Your Kindergarten or Pre-K Class!

The early childhood classroom is full of excitement and wonder. Students will experience many things for the first time during these early years, and you want to make your classroom fun and engaging, a place where students love to be. Additionally, students need time dedicated to developing the many foundational skills they will use in the years to come.

To help your students thrive, you’ll need a variety of activities and other resources to use in your Kindergarten, Pre-K, Preschool, or homeschool classroom. We’ve included 10 here to get you started. You may download and print these materials as-is, or like with all TeacherSherpa templates, you may edit them to meet your needs on the simple, all-in-one editor.
