Having a “writing area” where children can easily access materials they might need encourages authentic writing experiences. We have letter paper, list paper, and a variety of blank note cards out in their playroom.
On their table, we have our name chest, a basket that contains colored pencils, black pens, pencils and alphabet stickers. We also have a mini alphabet chart sticker in clear sight.




With over 10 years of EDU experience and a growing family, Mariah started Playful Learning in 2008 as a resource for parents and teachers. In 2010 Playful Learning received the Parent’s Choice Gold Medal, and in August of 2011, Shambhala Publications released her first book, Playful Learning: Develop Your Child’s Sense of Joy and Wonder. Mariah has an M.S. Ed in Elementary Education and was that girl sitting in the back of class thinking about what she would do differently if she was the teacher. Now she is happily working with a team of gifted educators to bring life-changing lessons to children, families, and schools around the world. In her free time she can be found taking long walks, enjoying a cup of tea, or swimming in the Atlantic with her husband and two daughters.
