Setting up Your Space: Little Wonders

April 1, 2019 | Wisdom Wonder Project

When you first move into a home or an apartment, before you start making meals in your new kitchen, it helps to check that you have some staple ingredients and equipment on hand. That way, you won’t one day find yourself stuck in the middle of a recipe without any beaters to beat your egg whites. In the same way, as you prepare to use the Wisdom Wonder curriculum to share a feast of ideas with your child(ren) at home or in the classroom, you’ll find you get the best results if you put in that bit of extra time to set up your space.

With that in mind, here is a list of items we suggest you have on hand in your learning space. We also encourage you to think outside the box. If you don’t already have something from the list and don’t wish to buy it, feel free to find a substitute that works for you!
