for our week of not a box we....

made patterns with unifix cubes
explored cubes and color combos
painted with marbles IN a box
played with boxes
and stacked them up like blocks...

**Not a Box by Antoinette Portis is a classroom favorite. The children would often return to the boxes and themes of the story weeks later. I love how the books linger. This is why I love our literature based program.


  1. The primary colored baking cups are a GREAT idea! Very affordable option to the painted wood sets. Thanks for sharing your bright and shiny ideas!

    1. thank you friend! I picked those up at the dollar tree a year ago...the kiddos love them and like to stack them, use them as bowls for pretend food, sort into them, and put them on their heads.
