Here are 4 simple one-ingredient calm down bottles for the classroom. Put them together and use them when your students need a few minutes to regroup.

Calm Down Bottles for the Classroom

One of the most important things that we can teach our preschoolers is how to self-regulate when they get too excited, anxious, or overly stimulated. A strategy that works well to help preschoolers regulate their emotions is to provide a quiet corner or nook that is stocked with "Calm Down" bottles.

Genial!

Activities for Preschool

Threading a rainbow on pipe cleaners - Enfiler des perles sur un arc-en-ciel de cure-pipes.

A great activity to do for St. Patrick's Day or for the arrival of spring.That's such a great activity for eye-hand coordination, color matching and fine motor skills. Une belle activité à réaliser pour la St-Patrick qui arrive à grand ou pour l'arrivée du printemps. C'est une excellente activité pour la coordination œil-main, le classement par couleurs et la motricité fine. I inserted one side of all the pipe cleaners in the floral foam. My daughter matched the color of the pipe cleaners…

Cotton Wool Ball Painting. Great messy play idea for toddlers and babies. Fun craft ideas!!

Cotton Wool Ball Painting - alice & amelia

This afternoon we did Cotton Wool Ball Painting. As much as painting with a brush is fun this just introduces something new and acts the same as a sponge just slightly less mess! You will need cotton wool balls and clothes pegs. Simply attach the peg to the cotton wool then use it for dabbing into the paint and onto the paper. I got the colours and the cotton wool all ready for Amelia and sat her down to start. She was so over excited shouting her version of “stamp stamp stamp” every time…

Number formation display I think this is fabulous for engaging the boys. I would probably introduce one number at a time and slowly build it up.
