Themes for Early Childhood

We love learning with themes. Both in the classroom and at home I have enjoyed teaching with themes. Not only is it a fun way to explore new topics with kids, there are also many educational benefits. Early Childhood News has a detailed article about the benefits of theme-based learning.

On this page you’ll find links to the themes we have shared about on Fantastic Fun and Learning. I’ll add new themes to this page as we share about them, and I will also add new activities to the existing themes as we revisit the topics in the future. So check back often!
