Here’s an adorable Easter craft for kids to make before an egg hunt! Although I was in charge of the Bunny Bags, Mary Poppins ended up doing ALL of them with the kids! Engineer was sick at the beginning of the week, so I’d missed some days. Are you following my Easter with Kids PinterestKeep Reading

This month, the kiddos in my preschool were able to learn about hatching chicks. Our wonderful music/resource teacher was in charge of this project, which allowed all of the children to be involved. She got some fertilized eggs and an incubator from a local farm and set up everything in our music room. The kiddosKeep Reading

The spotlight was on Eric Carle this week in preschool, as we continued the month’s theme of “Celebrating Our Favorite Authors”.

Each month, I like to have my students make a piece of hand print art. At the end of the school year, Mary Poppins and I use their hand prints as part of their “preschool portfolio“. In the past, I’ve done shamrock hand prints, leprechaun hand prints, and bunny hand prints. This year, I wantedKeep Reading
Last week, we were finishing up a mini-unit about America in preschool. As part of this mini-unit, we discussed Americans in the armed forces. Now, I must tell you I’m a little biased about this topic, as most of my family is retired or active duty military. My father is a retired Marine, making meKeep Reading

For morning choices today, I put out a few random materials for the students. I had recently cleaned out part of our closet at work and discovered extra golf tees (leftover from Holey Pumpkins) and fancy toothpicks (leftover from potato turkeys). I remembered how much fun the kiddos had with both of those activities, soKeep Reading
