Welcome to Paula's Preschool and Kindergarten! My class blog is the place I share information about some of the fun learning activities we are doing at school. I hope to provide parents with insight into what we are doing, and why, and to share ideas with other early childhood educators. Please don't use the photos or text of this blog without permission, but please do use any ideas you find useful. Thank you for stopping by!

More J week activities

It was another busy week here at school!  As you can see, we made our upper case J craft look like jack-o-lanterns.  I had precut orange oval shapes in various sizes, and the children worked on layering them together to get a nice 3D effect - and of course they added faces.  Our jack-o-lanterns were very happy and festive looking!

 We had 3 choices for our letter J hand prints this week: the jack-o-lanterns were made by painting the front of a closed fist, then rolling that on the paper.  This is another idea that I've been using for a long time, and I think it too came from Mailbox Magazine long long ago.

 The jaguars and jellyfish were inspired by some I saw on Pinterest, my number one source of fun ideas!

 We also had lots of costume play this week - of course!  Pretending is a powerful thing, and 3, 4, and 5 year olds definitely yearn to be powerful!  Add lots of candy and staying out late, and you have a pretty awesome holiday!
