Do you want to know what’s been keeping little hands busy in my house this December?
It all started with a not-so-little visit to Pinterest:
My daughter likes window shopping from the comfort of home just as much as I do. I love crafting with her, so I didn’t mind that her wishlist was a mile long! Over the course of about 10 days, here are the projects my daughter accomplished:
Materials used: white paper, pencil, a black sharpie (Mom), and watercolor paints.
Materials used: paper, paint, cotton balls, red poms, scissors, glue, and photographs printed in black & white. My daughter decided she wanted to paint a “patter-en” (as she calls it) for the arms and legs rather than try the accordion fold. I helped with the antlers, elf hat, and elf shoes. We decided to make Little Mister a reindeer, too!
Both of these pins were dead ends. If you know the original sources, please share!
Ribbon Wreath Plate
Materials used: paper plate, hole punch, and ribbon. This was a great lesson in patience and weaving for her. The plate was done just in time to hold the cookies we brought to share for her preschool Christmas program!
Just finished up a book companion for Amazing Animal Journeys, a Level 3 National Geographic Kids text. This book follows the migration of zebras, red crabs, and walruses. If you already own the bundle, be sure to grab this latest addition.
I love this book recommendation table from Learning on Leighton Lane! ❤️❤️❤️I love this book recommendation table by @learningonleightonlane!!! She painted a thrift store find with chalkboard paint and used chalk markers to do the writing. ♥️ Her class “librarians” choose books for the table and kids may take and read any book they find there! Such a perfect way to celebrate reading!!! ... See MoreSee Less
Books have been a constant in my life since I was a young reader. I'm so glad that it's my turn to share my love of books with others. ❤️❤️❤️Books have meant so much to me my entire life. I love how books can change our perspective or strengthen our beliefs. I love how you can pass joy by sharing a book you love with someone. I love how more recently, educators and publishing house are realizing the importance and significance of representation in children’s books. I’d like to point out however, that BIPOC folx and LGBT+ folx and differently abled folx have been begging for representation for....ever. In a well know idea from Rudine Sims Bishop, books should be mirrors and windows for our students. I love this graphic by @grantdraws What have books been for you? #thetututeacher #teachersofinstagram #teachersfollowteachers ... See MoreSee Less
