two sheets and some duct tape made a cozy igloo for the week.
inside were “cold weather” books and more white sheets.

labels as “ice blocks” from the thrift shop were stuck on pre-cut igloo shaped paper.

we used lots of glue and white things to make a big igloo. once dry it found a home at circle time with some big books. the children moved white sheets over to cover up in snow. : )
add a duct tape strap if too many rock start moves are happening, nearly breaking the instrument.
friday morning jam session using real instruments: ukulele, accordian and hands
my valentine to preschoolers this year was an i spy bottle.
inside there are white beans, heart beads, mini valentine erasers, jewels and mirrors.
plus a secret message.
i’m counting on the preschoolers leaving the bottles taped up tightly! : )
preschool families and friends have been collecting milk lids for us.
since it is m week we’ve been sorting by color. we’ve noticed that in the tens of milk lids there are, there is only one brown lid. come on, let’s drink some chocolate milk!
the next phase of this activity is arranging them into words, letter groups, abc order, etc. for some of our kids we explored spacing between letters. learning that when there is a “finger space” between letters that means they are different words. sometimes it was fun to do that on purpose. like a joke. hee hee hee.
we noticed how many letters can become other letters simply by turning them.
kevin can become keviz and can easily become kevin again! more funny stuff.
keep bringing those milk lids…we have more projects in mind!
