I’m not a big fan of worksheets, which focus more on paper and pencil work, as well as rote copying. However, I do like using hands-on printables at times in the classroom. I also like making such printables for my classroom, as I can tailor them to what the kiddos are learning about, or what they’re interested in. Below you’ll find Fun-A-Day’s collection of free preschool printables. Let me know what you think about them!
