oh the fun that we had: our dr. seuss week
sock coloring sheets thinking I would send them home with the children to extend their Dr. Seuss week. Instead, I covered two sheets in contact paper and set them out as play dough mats. One youngster surprised me by spending a good thirty minutes press, rolling, and shaping the dough into a Seuss-shaped sock. There were beads and textured rollers set out as well.
For one of our math projects we went on a star hunt. I used post-it note stars found on sale at an office supply store and stuck them all over the room. Masking tape was used to create our graph into two sections. One for orange stars and one for yellow stars. The children hunted and sorted then practiced their one-to-one correspondence as they counted the stars. The next class day the children found that the star were hiding again and off they went to search, graph, and count on their own. The quantity of stars was different and they were excited to tell me all about it.
