Oh I get by with a little help from my friends,
Mmm,I get high with a little help from my friends,
Mmm, I’m gonna try with a little help from my friends. – John Lennon and Paul McCartney
Friends and family make life a lot more fun. My friends help me, lift me up, and celebrate with me. There are so many wonderful friends, to try to list them would take years.
So today, I am focusing on six friends (sites) that have helped Music Sparks become know as a resource for those working with young, old and both together. Here’s to six wonderful sites that refer others my way!
Please visit their sites and enjoy all the great resources they offer!
#1 Pre-K Pages: This site great theme ideas, lists of books, and lots of downloadable materials for early education. Whether you work in preschool or have a preschooler, you’ll find many helpful items here. This site is a time saver for me. Be sure and check out Vanessa’s store filled themed packets, drams, printables and more.
#2 Teach Preschool: Here is another preschool resource. Deborah has a wealth of songs, art, books and playful learning ideas. Deborah has introduced me to so many wonderful preschool folks! And she has hosted many blog hops so her site is a big asset in my planning.
