The Value of Sending Activities Home with Your Students

As early childhood educators, you spend hours each day ensuring students build critical skills to prepare them for their elementary school journey and beyond. Each day’s lesson includes fun and engaging activities, such as reading, games, dramatic play, and more.

But the learning and fun doesn’t have to stop at pick-up time or just because it’s summer. By using the Lesson Builder at ABCmouse and sending activities home for students, you are providing extraordinary value to families.

In today’s digital age, millennial parents are searching for a balance between learning and technology for their children. In the 30 minutes it takes to make dinner, children can be entertained and engaged through ABCmouse. Young learners can interact with a device in a meaningful way at home — just like they do in your classroom!

Here are a few of our favorite activities that are perfect for home:

Paint by Sight Words

Your student can complete the flower activity to create art and review sight words.  Then, with a click of the mouse, that same coloring sheet can turn into an interactive puzzle to practice another set of skills.
