The story behind Bright Horizons emergent curriculum

What happens when a toddler tells his teacher he loves cheetahs? Or a pre-kindergarten student asks what dinosaurs eat? At Bright Horizons®, those questions spark learning opportunities and lessons in math, reading, science, art…and more. Watch the video to see teachers and parents talk about this very unique approach toward curriculum, and how a child's very own interests become the launch pad for curiosity... and a lifetime love of learning.

Grocery Shopping

You Will Need:

Shopping list, magazine or newspaper with food images, scissors, paper, glue, writing utensils

Directions:

Work with your child to make a list of items you need to buy at the grocery store. Have him help cut pictures of items out of the newspaper, magazine, or weekly grocery ads and glue them onto the paper to create a visual shopping list. Go to the grocery store and have him use a pencil, crayon, or marker to cross or check off items when found.

Tip:

This activity encourages children to assist in shopping and helps with reading skills. Start out with a small list. Allow your child to push a child size cart if it's safe and available at the store.
