Want to learn our theme song? You Are My Sunshine is a time-honored song that children and adults can all enjoy! We have developed these special hand movements and are excited to share them with others. This is a great song for all young children to learn. Enjoy!

Do you have a little one that can't get enough of learning about outer space? I find that every year this is one of the very most loved science topics in our preschool.
While there may only be about a month to learn about space in the classroom, you can help your child follow their curiosity anytime with a few of my favorite space toys, books, and educational items below!
For BIG learning fun at home or in the classroom, I highly recommend getting inflatable planets or solar system models to really get their attention and as a fun hands-on learning experience about the planets. We use the inflatables in class, and the kids just LOVE them. They would be great hung up on a ceiling, too.
If you've been around kids a lot, then you know how there are those moments when you just need to get their attention and keep them busy for a little while. It might be in a classroom between activities, waiting in a line, waiting for a turn, or maybe you just need to re-focus.
Finger plays are one of the best ways to handle this! I know there are a ton of websites out there with ideas, but we've tried many of them over the years, and have learned that there are a few that the kids just love and really like to join you.
The next time you need to pass a few minutes of time or re-group for a bit, give one of our favorites a try! You even get the added bonus of helpful pre-reading skills with rhyme and repetition (woohoo!).
Here are some of our most favorites:
