Team building is an important quality that needs to be vaccinated in childhood. Team building activities or games are interesting and constructive ways to help children understand teamwork, cooperation, brotherhood and develop communication.

make story maps (and a book review)

Inspired by the recently published book, Show Me a Story, by Emily Neuberger, my kids and I sat down one morning to work on a story map. What started as a creative kick starter, turned into a four hour project that kept us highly engaged until lunch. We love making maps, so this was not something too new. What was different was the scale (the entire floor of our learning lab) and the inclusion of many, many plastic creatures (and cotton balls, blocks, fabric trees and more). We became…

Rock Your Blocks Center!

My daughter has one of the best kindergarten teachers imaginable. She is caring, patient, and so imaginative. Her activities seem to seamlessly flow together, integrating all content areas. In short, she is amazing! One of the activities, that I really loved, was her newest addition to the blocks center. My daughter came home and told me that their "Blocks Center is really rocking the house!" That is high praise coming from my baby. A few days later, I got to go in and see this "rocking"…

Our Completed Group Time Map While they watched and guided me, I taped paper trips to the floor to recreate the roads from our map. Then we added the railroad tracks through the town. Taking a break from all this hard work. We had a lot of fun brainstorming what we could use from the classroom to create each destination on the map. My favorite is the slide and monkey bars from the dollhouse for the playground. I wrote out the labels and read them to them as they stuck them around town. I had…

Making our own maps in preschool

A neighborhood map is great way for your students to represent their experiences! Maps help children make meaning of their world as they draw representations of the special places and things that are important in their everyday lives. Each of these simple street maps have their own story behind them but unfortunately, all I had time
