2019-2020 Open House

We had an open house
so the kids along with their parents,  
could meet me.

I set up my two tables with 8 of 9 stations.





I didn't have photo stands, so when I was
prepping, I just tossed those items into the
bins.

Everyone got a folder to put their materials inside.


Station 2,

All About Me (family) book 


Station 3-

Meet the teacher.

I put a business card at the bottom.


Station 4

Wish lists on coffee cups :)


This is station 5

The board, letters, boarders, and props all came from Dollar Tree.

I left them out along with my phone for 
pictures in case parents forgot theirs.


 Station 6 were mints for the families :)




Station 7 were gifts for the kids-

glow sticks

In hindsight, this should have been station 9 

*Note to self, make it station 9 next year lol


Station 9 

Was all about book orders. 
I attached a letter to book fliers.

The printable came from HERE.

We do those as a class monthly, 
we work on cutting skills.

Read more about how I use them HERE.




I had a pretty good turn out :)  

 Looking forward to a frog-tastic year!!!

Morning Bins February Edition

After the children answer the question of the day.
Sign in, then they grab a drawer.

The children get one drawer a day and get another one the following day, whenever that is. Not like here's a Monday bin, here's a Tuesday one etc. 

Morning Bins

Cotton balls and blue ice cubes from Dollar Tree


Q-tip dot art
Children use a small paint pallet (from Dollar Tree)
with red, white, and purple.
We just finished using light and dark blue.


Torn paper snowflakes with out glue sponges.



Geoboards 


Cube Builds


These are tongue depressors and stretchy bands from Oriental Trading.

I wrote numerals, dots, and number words on each one.
The child slides the correct number of bands on the stick.


The child cuts out the heart and punches the circle part.
I have hand held punches from Dollar Tree.

Here is our set up with the lights on:

After the kids are done with their shadows,
they get displayed on the clips.


I grabbed three different kinds of flashlights from Dollar Tree



We started the week with an easy activity of everyone
make a shadow:








Then we moved to our science area 
without the lights:

Dramatic Play: Coffee Shop

We had a coffee/hot drink shop in January.

We were supposed to only have it for two weeks... but 
we had four bad weather days in two weeks lol 







We always had the workers... we always needed customers!


They all had fun... only wish some of the coffee was real!
