oh, the thrill of finding a REAL cash register for $5 at the thrift shop.
bring on the construction paper money and scrunched foil coins…the cut up yogurt container lid credit cards and deposit slip checks. oh yeah.
m is for money and s is for store, too : )
with the guidelines being to keep your feet on the floor and your head off the table, they painted.
f is for finger painting, p is for paint, too. : )
we often put tape down to define space in a new way…especially with little puzzle pieces.
t is for tape, too. : )
this collage grew and grew…when green week was over we made this the top of our tree in the puzzle corner:
g is for green, s is for st. patrick’s day, t is for tree, too. : )
we send home supplies for each preschooler to make ONE valentine…then we have a school exchange.
when they bring back their valentines, they put them in this box…with a mirror surprise inside.
b is for box and m is for mirror, too : )
small sticks and strong glue (we used a glue gun) makes rafts that float!
s is for stick, f is for float and w is for water, too. : )
it is a wonderful and important tradition to have fresh fruits or vegetables with our snacks…here is the balance of pre-packaged teddy grahams with frozen peas, wheat crackers and ice cold water.
scissors to open the packages and a magnifying glass to see things a bit closer (?)
chalk and cups of water makes a wonderful paint paste.
it is also an unexpected treat to find a tub of chalk left out in the rain. chalk that has been saturated is incredilbe brilliant and satisfying to draw with!
