ABOUT TEACHING TOTES
Teaching Totes℠ are rental play-based learning activity boxes that give caregivers access to a fresh rotation of toys and learning materials every two weeks for the littles in their life!
Children often tire of their own toys and books very quickly. Their parents and caregivers are then stuck with a house full of things that are just collecting dust. With a Teaching Tote℠, you get new materials every two weeks! As a bonus benefit, Teaching Totes℠ are filled with great ideas for materials you might like to buy for birthday or holiday gifts. Essentially, you can take toys, games, and books out for a test drive before buying!
Not every stay-at-home parent has a background in education, but every Teaching Tote℠ specialist does! Use Teaching Totes℠ as your resource to enrich your child’s early childhood experience!
Each Teaching Tote℠ revolves around a specific theme or subject area. Some examples include:
Teaching Totes℠ work well as a stand-alone curriculum to be used within the home for parents looking to engage their children in educational play OR as a supplemental tool to enrich the curriculum in childcare programs, homeschool co-ops, Prenda pods, afterschool programs, Scout troops, and more!
Each Teaching Tote℠ (and each Teaching Tote specialist) is unique, so not every tote comes with a prescribed constellation of materials. However, examples of what you can expect to find in there are:
dress up costumes
sensory materials (like play dough and sensory bins)
crafts (with all the prep work already done for you)
Every tote comes with easy-to-follow lesson plans that explain how to use each activity or material and give suggestions for how to modify it for various skill levels.
