Classroom Library Organization

Thanks to a small snow event, I have an extra 2 hours this morning! Hooray for snow delays! I thought I would add a quick blog post about classroom libraries! I don't know if you're like me or not but I just LOVE books and therefore I am constantly adding new books to my class library. An awesomely organized teacher friend of mine turned me on to a cool app for my phone that will scan the books and create a database on my phone which includes title, author, a picture of the cover and so much…

Head Hunters Sight Word Game

I was lucky enough to go to the Illinois Pre-K and Kindergarten Conference last Thursday and Friday. There were plenty of inspirational speakers and I came home with TONS of ideas. For once I did not come home with tons of "stuff" I bought. I think I maybe just might have already purchased everything they sell there:) Anyway, I wanted to bring my class a little gift from my "trip." I got them nothing but good ideas and a reinvigorated teacher. SO . . . I told the kiddos I got them some new…

Reggio Inspired: Color

Woot! Day two of my sneak peek into a local Reggio inspired preschool, Rosa Parks. The quality of classroom environment in this school is off the charts. Today I am going to share a few of their color ideas. Simple canvas boards with color collections. I love all the texture. A close up of the color collection. Almost every classroom had a version of this color application. Paint value chips were used to designate the place for each color family. Love it! Here is the same idea on a black…

Time Capsule in a Tube

One of our first-week-of-school projects was making these simple time capsules using a cardboard tube. Start by collecting, writing, or drawing some things to go inside. My girls traced their hands, drew a self-portrait, filled in a list of favorites, and thought of three things they want to learn about. We also cut a string to mark each of their heights. Roll-up your things and

Recycling Milk Containers

I hate throwing away plastic containers as there are so many ways to recycle them. Here are a few ways to recycle plastic milk containers. Really, the possibilities are endless and it is great for children to think of ways to recycle in all aspects of their lives. MILK CARTON POT PLANTS After putting drainage holes in the base of the container, the children drew decorations on the sides of the milk carton with permanent markers. They then added potting mix and their seeds. MILK CARTON…

2 Tuesdays till Christmas

Wow, what a Tuesday! Making and decorating Christmas trees on the light table. This could be adapted and used on any table by making cardboard trees and using buttons, pom-poms or stickers. I encouraged the children to count, use colour names and make patterns. At 8 o'clock on Monday night I asked my husband to nip to the garage and shape two old bits of wood into Mary and Joseph. I really wanted a large nativity set that we could put in the block area. After an hour of sweating he came up…
