Preschool CornerWe had a week off from school this week…it only took the kids two days to figure out that we hadn’t done anything and declare their complete and utter boredom. Until I threatened a house cleaning and they immediately found so many things of interest {grins}.

Although we don’t have anything to share this week,  I am excited to show-and-tell a few of YOUR fabulous ideas from last weeks link-up {I do stop by and visit you all!!}. Here are just a few of the fun things that you all are doing…

Runaway Bunny sensory bin

I love this Runaway Bunny sensory bin that Angelic Scalliwags put together for their Before Five in a Row unit – super cute! I keep finding these cute ideas that make me want to do our Runaway Bunny unit all over again!

map skills

Linton Academy made map skills a 3-D and hands on project with her kids. They used a road rug, hot wheels and buildings to create a town and then practiced giving directions and telling left from right.

We have an Angry Birds unit coming up soon and this little pom pom bird’s nest craft from Our Little Monkeys makes me want to hurry up and finish up our plans! They were working on an N is for Nest topic – but just so cute.

This pumpkin seed counting project from Finding the Teachable Moments – definitely a teachable moment!! They counted out over 700 seeds from their pumpkin and worked on grouping the seeds by 5 and 10. Such a fabulous hands on idea {and I’m sure the kids loved getting their hands in the goop}!

Learners in Bloom was able to sneak in some fine motor practice along with 1:1 counting, number recognition, name recognition/reading and even place values – all with some fun pumpkin erasers. I love how a simple activity can incorporate so much!
