If I Was A Constellation

There’s something fascinating about the night sky. To help my son see more than just a sky full of “twinkle, twinkle little stars,” I checked out some great books on stars from our local library. First, we read Star Climbing, a fiction book by Lou Fancher. This dreamy book talks about a child who falls asleep imagining what it’s like to play among some of the most popular constellations. When done, I opened Jessica Dowling’s Glow-in-the-Dark Constellations book to the page showing late…

Classroom Decor - Chalk One Up For The Teacher

So who likes to decorate their classroom? Who uses a theme? Who starts thinking about it just about this time of year? YEP! I raised my hand to all of those.

Mini Unit - Space

The great thing about putting this unit together is that it was pretty much already put together. (You may recall we spent the month of January focusing on space.) There are some new things, but for the most part I reused many of the same materials and, because I'm lazy (and very pregnant), I'm reusing many of the photos and text from my January post, too. :) Just note that the trays aren't included in the mini unit. ~an overview~ Here's a closer look at what's inside this unit: Felt Planets…

Mrs. Karen's Preschool Ideas

WOW! I've said it before and I'll say it again (and again!), I love this unit! Each and every day I am blown away by what my class can do! At the beginning of our unit on the Solar System, I assign each child a planet name. As we go through our week, I call them by their planet name and tell them something special about themselves. By the end of the week the children not only can tell me about THEIR planet, but also about all the others. WOW! Make it fun and they WILL learn! We started our…
