Fine Motor Skillz Bracelets


Oh yeah, that’s skills with a Z!!!
So I noticed that many of my Kinders were having some trouble with writing their names and it wasn’t that they didn’t know the letters but more that those sweet little hands couldn’t control their pencil or crayon.  So we started practicing some fine motor skills.  I found some great ideas at Hands On As We Grow.  We practiced tracing lines, tracing our names, writing our names on our own, sorting beads, and stringing those beads onto pipe cleaners for some beautiful bracelets.  We had so much fun it almost makes me want to be a Kindergarten teacher!  20131011-132604.jpg




Pop Art Pastries


I am a lover of all things sweet, so one of my favorite artists is Wayne Thiebaud (pronounced “Tee-bo”) and his super sweet artwork. I came across this blog post about his artwork coming to life
and was further inspired by Kathy Barbro’s post about her students creating Thiebaud artwork.
My student’s enjoyed seeing his artwork and loved creating their own as well!
