Ring George the Giraffe

My co-teacher created a game for our kiddos' "Ring George the Giraffe". The kids where given two hula hoops to throw in hope of catching George the wild giraffe.  This game was a perfect way to collect some "Teaching Strategies Gold" documentation.  

Objectives covered where demonstrates gross motor movement (throwing) and balances needs of self and others.  

The kids loved it and it was a perfect inside game, due to the fact that we could not go outside today because they are finally planting grass.  I am so excited to have grass instead of mounds of dirt.

No Sew Diapers

My co-teacher turned out dramatic play center into a nursery for zoo animals.  She did such an amazing job:).
To help make it more realistic I made no sew diapers!   I can't believe how easy these where and the best part was I did not have to pull out the sewing machine, which took the anxiety of sewing down to a zero.  

First, I created a pattern, and cut out my diapers (I used fleece, it does not fray when cut) 

Next, I used liquid stitch to glue Velcro tabs on.  

Tadaaaa no sew diapers my kiddos thought they where amazing.

Chicka Chicka Boom Boom

Academic Showcase Night!

What fun we had creating our Chicka Chicka Boom Boom trees.  
Each student got to glue items on letters: 
g = glitter
p = pom poms
d = dot
f = flames
c = cotton balls
b = bows

On our number tree the students picked a number, then they glued objects on their numbers!

We did a letter, number sort as a whole class!

Each child completed their own number letter sort!

Finished display!

Students worked on recognizing the letters in their name by gluing them on their own
 "Chicka Chicka Boom Boom" tree.

Our students had a fun time showing their parents their hard work!
