turn taking is tricky. especially when the board moves and then the people fall. especially when it’s hard to remember who goes next. especially when the pile of cards keeps falling down. especially when arms aren’t long enough to reach the pile of cards.
thank you, tape. thank you, cup.
candyland has gotten a bit easier.
when we had 3 bags of marshmallows come to preschool, we made time for a campfire to “roast” them.
using our battery tea light candles, some smooth dowels (thank you otis) and a red scarf, we had a delightful campfire.
i am grateful that no one got hurt with the skewers and i hope there aren’t too many cavities.
i plan to keep the tea lights, dowel rods and scarf as a kit for children to use. i think it would make a great gift for a young child too!
what fun to have a cat visit our tuesday/thursday class. thank you, lucy, for this special show and tell!
it was fun to watch sesame explore the classroom…
come back again, sesame!
i made mint play dough for christmas week and pulled the family corner stove close to the table.
such a great opportunity for “kitchen language:” turn the oven to 5 degrees, cook them for 3 hours, add more flour, find your oven mitten, my tray is full, get off the stove-it’s on!
posterboard, a new tape dispenser (thank you, kourtney!) and new rainbow tape (thank you, otis):
or, you can be like a few preschoolers and say, “oh, yeah! i know: j is for christmas!” : )
i only knew these as wikki stix until we were given bendaroos (thank you ronni)!
they have been made into spiders, flowers, bracelets, and this week, into candy canes.
we moved our circle time rug in order to create a cozy island for read our christmas books and playing board games.
whenever possible, put things on the ceiling.
we’ve put tucked our blue collage and yellow collaged in with the ceiling tiles.
