Parents and guardians are children’s first teachers. Research shows that families and teachers working together to support children’s development can lead to better outcomes for children. If you have a preschool age student, try using activities from the Family CIRCLE Activity Collection. This collection includes fun, easy activity ideas that families can do together to help support important school readiness skills for children ages 0-6. Access this free collection directly at Here you can find activities in English and Spanish that use everyday materials available in the home.
