Welcome back! We are so happy Friday is back again! It’s time to link up with Doodle Bugs Teaching to share our first Five For Friday of February.
We celebrated our one year blog-iversary this week! It is hard to believe it has been an entire year since we started on this journey. We have learned a lot and it has been a joy to share our experiences with you!
To celebrate we gave away products from our Teachers Pay Teachers store to a few lucky followers. Congrats to our winners!
Over the past year we have explored many different new activities in the classroom. Here are our favorites!
Angie’s favorite activities over the past year have been all the different sensory bins. Seeking out new ideas and putting our own spin on them has been a lot of fun. Some of our earliest sensory bins have stood out as highlights. Here are some that really stand out:
These themes are coming around again in our curriculum and we both look forward to recreating these fun sensory bins for a new group of kiddos to explore!
I would have to say some of my favorites are our summer themed activities.I really enjoyed popsicle painting. It was so much fun to make the popsicle paints and even more fun to watch the kids paint with them.
I also really enjoyed creating the ice cream sensory bin for our students. This was a perfect activity to do at the end of the year as we are wrapping things up and heading into summer.
I can’t wait to do these activities again this year!
We welcomed in February earlier this week. It’s crazy that we are already in the second month of 2016. February should be lots of fun as we learn all about construction and tools, and of course Valentine’s Day! Our kiddos are already so excited about our class Valentine’s Day party. We will be sharing each of these fun events with you as they happen. What are you most excited about this month? Leave us a comment and let us know!
Now that February is here it is time to start prepping for Valentine’s Day in the classroom! We have a great Valentine Activity Bundle in our Teachers Pay Teachers store full of fun, no prep learning opportunities for your kiddos.
So far this week we have worked with our kids on the handwriting pages, visual discrimination activity, and color identification page. Next week we will visit the other activities during our small group time!
Slowly but surely my Donors Choose project is coming along. Thanks to those who have generously donated to our sweet kids. Every little bit helps provide new STEM materials to better prepare our students for their future. We appreciate anything you may be able to do to help this project along! Head over to Donors Choose to see all the details of this project and how you can help.
Last week we wrapped up our study on winter and shared all of our fun winter themed activities on the blog. This week we moved on to an entire new unit on construction. There are so many fun ideas related to learning about construction. All the details of our week full of construction will be posted next week, but in the meantime here is a little sneak peek of the week’s construction art.
Make sure to subscribe to our blog to have next week’s post on construction and all future posts delivered to your inbox!
That completes our five for Friday for this first Friday in February. We hope you’ve enjoyed reading about our week! We look forward to sharing more with you next week!
