Arts and Craft for Kids: Making fire works with a straw and food coloring!!

This is from last year, but we just did it again and it was so much fun!!! I think it is so fun to make children's art a part of your holiday decor! It is a good way to make them feel appreciated.

Reggio-Emilia: How To Bring the Most Out of Your Early Learning Environment

My quest this year was to create a more organized, visually pleasing environment in our preschool classroom. My inspiration has come from various classes I've taken this year, inspirational teachers, cohort among local preschools, and of course, blogging! My research of other classrooms and personal aesthetic have led me to the Reggio Emilia approach to classroom environments. I do not claim to be a Reggio teacher.
