busy busy busy

These days, the kiddos get busy as soon as they're in the classroom! I've been so busy talking to them about their work, helping them work through ideas, and setting out supplies they ask for that I never get to photograph the centers I set up. Here are a few from the past few weeks:
painting rocks with water
meadow play on the building table
small rocks and golf tees at the play dough table
butterfly matching game
symmetry play with our magnetic butterflies
tray of bells
snails and baby snails!
scissors work and parsley
fine motor meadow
sound blocks on the block shelf
frames on the block shelf
play aphids on the block shelf
wood butterflies and cedar rings on the block shelf

ladybug invasion

The ladybugs in the classroom danced, twirled, built, painted, and played today. It has been an immense delight to see. Sigh. Our school year is almost over and I have months and months of classroom fun to write about. This is going to be a busy summer!
