Planning activities for infants and toddlers can be an exciting, but sometimes challenging, process. Luckily, toddler curriculum books like The GIANT Encyclopedia of Theme Activities for Children 2 to 5 are a great way to help teachers establish a structured teaching method and include fun and engaging toddler classroom activities in their teaching routines.
Time management is one of the most important aspects of lesson planning. An unstructured and disorderly classroom is not good for teachers or their learners. Using a curriculum helps reduce the stress many teachers feel when trying to create and carry out lesson plans in their classrooms. Pre-made curriculums are also easy to follow and other educators have tried it before, so you can find out from them, or for yourself, what does and doesn’t work in your classroom and how to change it to fit the needs of your students.
Overall, using a curriculum will help you maintain classroom order, establish a routine for your students, and create a structure to your teaching, leaving room for both fun and learning.
