r is for roll

our giant tape ball had some action a few weeks ago.

from the sanctuary (also known as “big church room”) down to our classroom.

(i was on my back taking these and the ball rammed the camera into my face.  yikes.)

and if the ball made it’s way around the corner like this to the classroom, that was a “goal.”

r is for rubber band boards

technically, these are geoboards.  but we call them rubber band boards.  they are a well liked activity.

a great opportunity to create in the abstract.  this is a rocket ship:

expect to spend a lot of clean up time finding wayward rubber bands (or pieces of them) around the room.  that is when i announce “rubber band rescue!”

w is for willaby wollaby

willaby wollaby elephants by you.

we love this silly, silly song.

we love reusing items.  here we used paper plates, gray fabric and the one gray plastic bag i could find!  since it was a short week and we wanted to use these at circle time, i made their pieces stick with hot glue.

and how silly that the elephants we made all had everyone’s names with a W at the front (except for one friend who was in tears because he KNEW his name started with K and not W…we covered the silly name with fabric).

and how silly that the elephants talked (but only ms. kristin could hear them).

and how silly that they played hide and seek from the grandma and grandpa friends.
