From Head to Toe Hand print Giraffe

 

Truly there is no better way to start the year than Eric Carle From Head to Toe. For some of my frogs this was their first experience with hand prints. They love the cold, wet tickle of the paint and the excitement to see it become a giraffe.

Supplies needed:

From Head to Toe Hand print Giraffe supplies- 1 sheet of white and brown paper - Glue - Google eyes - Brown buttons - Black, Orange & Yellow Markers     To start I used a print shop program to make my I can do it white page. Then we started by painting their hand and up their arm. While I painted we talked about a Giraffe has four legs one tail and a long neck. then after wiping of the paint I asked whats missing, a head! Then I had them make a fist and we painted it and pressed a print to make the head. At this point I set it aside for the day to dry. When dry I added a sheet of brown paper to the back to give it a frame.

Easel Inspiration Frame

Easel Inspiration Frame

Old Frame for Easel Inspiration prep Throughout the year I like to give a little Inspiration at the easel. I Love a good theme I regularly use the easel to incorporate themes into our classroom. Last year I started introducing different styles of painting combined with the Letter of the Week. For example Pablo Picasso for the Letter P. Using my print shop I made a page with examples of the art and a photo of the artist. I covered it in Laminate so  it could be washed and used again and taped to the easel while they worked. The children really loved it and I made more and more of these inspiration pages. This summer I found a cool frame at the Goodwill  for only $2.00, I love the Goodwill you will find me there most Monday nights. After some clean up and paint I had my frame! My classroom theme is Frogs so I used Mod Podge to attach a Frog Easel Inspiration to the top corner. I designed it so the frame can hung vertically or horizontally. Once attached to the wall I added a clip so I can change out the page easily.  A fun new addition to our classroom!

Supplies Needed:       First I cleaned up the frame and added painters tape to the areas I wanted to keep. Then I was going to spray paint but to keep the cost down I used the craft paint I had on hand, and a fine paint brush to add different colors. Then I created a small Frog Easel Inspiration to add to the frame. The classroom theme is Frogs and you will find them everywhere in our room! I went over the frog and paint with the Mod Podge to give it a shine. I love the way it turned out and basically I spent $2.00 everything else I already had on hand!

Quack, Quack, Welcome Back Sensory

  Well it's that time of year again when our rooms are fresh and clean and ready for a new group of friends! The beginning of the year we focus on All About Me. As you will see I spend a lot of time on their names. In our room you will find the Class Name Book, Name Rocks and Name Writing Books. To start off our I Spy - Sensory Center with Quack, Quack, Welcome Back! This was a great way to recycle all the blue paper from the old bulletin board! Quack welcome back sensory set upSupplies Needed:         Start by running the paper through the paper shredder. I had so much paper that I burned out my small shredder at home, I had to shred the rest on another shredder and to my happy surprise they were two different textures! We have a set of Rubber Alphabet Ducks,  so fun you can use them in all kinds of sensory themes! Quack welcome back sensory table Using a very simple print program I printed up a little sign for the I Spy Board, then laminated it for strength. Using my camera I took photos of all the first Letters of our class, then laminated them and added them to the board.  Can't wait for the first day of school to see how my new friends enjoy it!           Quack welcome back sensory Quack welcome back sensory set 3 Quack welcome back sensory set 2 Quack welcome back sensory 1 Quack welcome back sensory board
