Since returning back to work last Thursday I feel like I have been playing catch-up with everything! Having those three snow days really messed up my schedule and I had to reschedule about three meetings, but fortunately this week we have PD Monday and Record's Day Friday so I am hoping to tackle my kitchen play area and getting more work task boxes together. My kiddos love the button sorting task box I made and I want to change it out for a few new ones.

Anyways, I am slowly starting to go through the kitchen bin and taking items out to make into work tasks. First one on the list the cookies 1-10. The original idea came from the Considerate Classroom.

I also have completed laminating the lanyards I intend on using in the center. You can purchase the Pretend Play Starter Kit here. I intend on adding more as I go along.

I  made a washer/ dryer out of a box I found down in my basement. I got the idea from Lola at Preschool Wonders (hers looks way better than mine!).

I also have made a couple of more work tasks for the bins I have made. This one is matching socks and putting together with a clothespin.  

Ethan has been loving these work tasks too. I will probably be bringing them home for the summer for him to play with.

Here is Ethan sorting pom poms with alligator (or as Ethan calls them Dragon) tongs.

This coming week we have PD on Monday and Friday a full day record's day so intend on tackling the kitchen this week as long as I get all my progress reports done. We shall see! Have a great Saturday.

I am linking up with Kacey for a quick recap of this week. Did anyone else feel like this week would never end?! It was a long week for me and I am happy for the weekend! This weeks theme was winter and here are some of the things we did:

1. Today we played the snowball fight game.

The kids shoot the snowball into the basket and then after everyone in the group has shot a snowball in they would draw it out...unwrap it, identify the letter or shape and then they would record it on the recording sheet.


You can get the game here.

2. I have been working on collecting items for the dramatic play center. I made the lanyards with specific jobs and what they can do. You can get these cards here.

3. We read The Snowy Day and the kids painted with white paint the snow and then added a little guy making a snow angel.

4. We made a walrus this week...

and a polar bear.
5. Last but not least we practiced 1 to 1 correspondence with pom-poms and snowmen ice cube trays and counting out 1-6 with the kids that are ready.  

Freebie Fridays
Have a great weekend!
