After going for a walk through the woods, the children are encouraged to make a self portrait with all the nature treasures that they collected. We can use a nice sturdy paper and glue it with tacky glue.Enhances creativity and nature awareness.
All about me bag - Each child fills the bag with 4 things about them and brings it into school. They can decorate the bag too. I did this with my own items as a first day of school ice breaker. Maybe get large paper sacks from the grocery
Cute idea for measurement common core- do a few times a year. Read Big Dog, Little dog, and then measure each child to see how tall they are. Make a chart for display, and leave out the measuring tape for a few days!
