Best Day Ever!

Introducing Best Day Ever!— after school and school holiday lesson plans designed by teachers for teachers. Available at NO COST, the plans offer a turnkey solution for school-age programs for after school hours and days when children are off from school. Whether it’s a teacher in-service, scheduled holiday, or surprise snow day, the plans will help you fill the day with fun, easy activities. The full day plans, called Kids’ Day Out, are built around high-interest themes. They include a daily schedule and lots of hands-on activities using many things you already have in your supply closet. We’re also offering a selection of free after school lesson plans. These single-activity lessons are perfect for after school programs. All lessons are aligned with PA learning standards and can be adapted to meet the needs and interests of individual students.

Best Day Ever! is brought to you by The Learning Lamp, a nonprofit organization based in Johnstown, PA that offers child care, preschool and school-age programs. Development of the plans was partially funded by the Community Foundation for the Alleghenies with help from the Early Childhood Education (ECE) Professional Development Organization (PDO) at the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education (PASSHE).

As a child care or youth-serving organization in Pennsylvania, these trial lesson plans are free to you. In exchange, please complete the survey link below for each lesson used in your program. When you complete a survey, you are automatically registered for a drawing of two $100 Amazon gift cards, which will take place in January 2023. We’re excited to hear what you think!
