I'm linking up with Kacey to share what I've been up too.

1. We celebrated Madi's Baptism last weekend. It was a beautiful day!

2. I went to Lakeshore and bought some new items for school. I also did some shopping on Amazon and the items have slowly been coming in!

I got this fun fine motor game for my kiddos. Ethan has enjoyed playing with it too!

3. Ethan and I made a Lightning McQueen car. 

4. Ethan and I made a color telescope. He loved looking through it seeing everything in red! All you need is toilet paper rolls and colored cellophane. I will probably be trying this with my little ones this year.

5. A freebie! 

You will need a crayon box for this one. It is great for tracing the ABC's and color words. 

Freebie Fridays
We are heading up north this weekend. Our first trip with Madi. It should be fun. Have a great weekend!

This coming year I am going to be starting to use a preschool agenda to document how the kids did that day.

I am going to be purchasing A Cupcake for the Teacher's behavior calendar to put in the folder. I can't wait! really think this will help with communicating with my parents.  

You can get the note and cover here. Do you use a daily communication folder? If so, do you like it and find it worth it?!

I just got this book for this coming school year and I think the kids are going to love it! The pictures are bright and colorful, but simple. It has students take a close look at what all kinds of dots there are. It would be a great book to talk about sorting and talking about differences, discussing what items around us are circular shaped and their uses, and has a rhythmic story pattern. I think my little ones are going to love it!

You can link up with Mrs. Jump's Class to find more fun books!

Another fine motor tub. This one is with pipe cleaners and I used a hole punch to put the holes in a formula lid. (I love these containers!)

This was a home project that was super easy! I used fabric, a 3 in multipurpose foam pad from Home Depot and a staple gun. We have a storage bench in the basement, but it was lacking some fun and so I decided to add the padding so we can also sit on the bench and just stapled the fabric to the wood top of the bench. Super easy and more fun then boring brown wood. I also want to add new fabric to the pillows and am currently looking for a no sew pillow cover tutorial.  

Also, thanks to the ideas of the considerate classroom  I am going to try making visual directions on how to play with the toys because the kiddos I have coming in more recently have not been taught how to play and this will help my little ones immensely!

If you can use this for your classroom you can grab it here!
