How are Play-Based Lessons Different?

Children don't learn by worksheets. They learn through exploration, hands-on experiences and engaging and fun lessons.

The Lovely Commotion Play-Based Lessons...

  • Include center ideas for each theme
  • Include Whole Group and Small Group Lessons
  • Include printables needed to complete activities, but you will not find traditional 'sit-down' and 'do this paper' worksheets
  • Are driven by standards or goals

Do these lessons align to standards?
