we made finger printed flower bookmarks for Mother’s Day. This is an idea that was included in Mother Goose Time curriculum several years ago. Brett made one for me & I just love it. This time I created my own template to make them. I’ve included the template below if you would like to try it. Just print, trim, finger paint & laminate. Punch a hole at the top and add a ribbon.
"We use these in our school as a "face to name chart"...use a piece of masking tape or small post-it note to mark the children who are absent, and you know at a glance who's here, how many children you have, etc. Best idea admin came up with EVER."
"Challenge capsules" for students who finish early-- keep those high achievers moving. I love the choice/surprise element here. It makes it a privilege, not a punishment. If we make sure the activities aren't just more of the same, this is great idea!
Writing in salt (this site has Montessori & Montessori-inspired activities).
raised salt painting: create design with glue, cover glue with table salt. Touch watercolor brush on salt, without smearing and watch color be absorbed by salt. Let dry. This looks fantastic.
newspaper clipping and then let the child expand the picture.
