📋 Center Signs 📋

Most preschool classrooms are set up with what’s known as centers. Housekeeping, science & math, art and writing centers are just a few common centers. These areas are usually delineated well with furniture. Most teachers also add center signs with pics to indicate to children what’s expected in each center. Here are a few of our signs. The pics of our preschoolers doing the activities in the center have been removed to protect identities.     I just snap candid shots of the preschoolers in each center and tape a few to the laminated signs. As you see the signs speak to parents, explaining what each child is learning as they play....

4th of July Fun!

Independence Day is too big a concept for most preschoolers so we celebrate the fireworks, parades, and picnics.                                                    Tape about 6 inches of yarn to the end of craft sticks.                          Kids dip the yarn into glue and drag across their black paper.                                                   Now add the glitter!

Welcome to the Zoo!

Year after year our preschoolers have loved Greg & Steve’s Kids In Motion CD. For this theme we play Animal Action I & II. They love doing their impression of each animal. You can purchase it here. For Zoo Week we began with this labor intencive project. It is so cute though!                                                                               Handprint animals with teacher painted details.  Add a drop of food color to cream cheese, spread on crackers and stand your animal crackers in the cream cheese for a fun zoo snack!...
