Little passports is a social studies subscription service for children. Each month we will learn about a new country on our global adventures of pre-k at Imagination Station Preschool. We will learn about specific cultures, languages, traditions, and foods.
Going on these adventures will help children to understand that our world is vast place with many different kinds of people, places, landscapes, traditions, and cultures. Implementing this curriculum in a pre-k classroom will allow children to value the differences between people within our classroom, neighborhoods, communities, and the world.

We will also have a monthly book club for our students at Imagination Station Preschool. Children will take home a “story sack” and be given the opportunity to read the story with their families. The “story sack” will include extension activities that can be completed at home with help from a parent. This may include literacy, math, science, and social studies activities, creative arts, and fine motor skill development etc. Each month there will be a different story with different activities. The children will bring the story sack home with them and then share their learning experiences with the class during a designated circle time.
