Dr Suess Thing 1 and 2

 I saw this activity at Lakeshore today.  They just got blue construction paper to be the hair and a sentence strip to adjust it to the child's head.  The children then decorated it how they wanted to with marker, foam stickers, and other things.

Journals in Prek

This is a great idea for all you teachers that purchase your own items for the classroom.  This teacher cut the notebooks that she uses for journal in half, this is such a money saving space saving idea.  Awesome!

Texas Flag

What a cool way to incorporate Texas history.  The children cut little blue and red paper and pasted it on a flag form.  They are learning Texas information and they are also using their fine motor skills.

qtip skeleton

This is an idea I saw in a teacher's classroom.  The students got qtips and made their own skeleton when studying bones.  This was their creation and it worked out really well.  Great Idea!!!

This is an awesome way to keep the students work and also display it at the same time.  I saw this idea in lots of head start classroom and also in a district prek class.  They staple a tag board sheet on the bulletin board with a flexible 2 hole  fastener prongs.  Then you can just keep adding work securely.  It is such great idea!!

Counting words in a sentence

 I saw this great activity at a PreK classroom.  The teacher was telling the students sentences and they had to move the counters up for each word.  The children were engaged and used manipulatives to learn the phonological awareness activity of sentence segmenting

Shape of things

I saw this great activity in  a Prek classroom.  Students listened to the book called The Shape of Things and then they made their own pictures with shapes.  Awesome!!
