Our names in watercolor | Happy Days Learning Center - Resources & Ideas for Pre-School Lesson Planning | Scoop.it
A child's name is very special and this simple watercolor activity turned out to be a fun and colorful way for our students to focus on the letters in their name.
Margaret Grover-Roos's insight:

Water colors are such a special medium to work with.  Add the prep with the hot glue gun, and it makes for an extra sensory experience and creation of a work of art!

More than just a strawberry

More than just a strawberry | Happy Days Learning Center - Resources & Ideas for Pre-School Lesson Planning | Scoop.it
Come and see why real life experiences are an important part of the learning experience both at home and in the preschool classroom!
Margaret Grover-Roos's insight:

Make sure you connect real life experiences with the ideas you plan for your classroom. It is for this reason, as a teacher, it is a good idea to find out what kinds of things children are doing at home. Did anyone go to the zoo lately? Did anyone go to the strawberry patch? As you can find out what types of experiences your students have spent time on with their families, then you can build on those experiences in the classroom too.
