Simple way to explore shapes on a table top!

35 Paper Plate Crafts for Kids

Letter Pops- For a few dollars and a few minutes you can create some great LETTER POPS for your classroom. You will need a set of magnetic letters and jumbo craft sticks. Glue a magnetic letter to each craft stick. (I LOVE E6000 glue that you can get at Walmart or hobby stores.) Pass these out to the children to hold up as you sing alphabet songs, such as “Alphardy,” “Who Let the Letters Out?” “Letter Pops”, etc.

NEED TO DO THIS -- Eliminate the tower of papers on your desk

{ create } "Last year I taught art class to 20 fifth graders. I helped them make a journal about their life. They made a page about their personality traits, what they want to be when they grow up, their favorite color, things they love, three things they wish for, their favorite food, what they are thankful for, and their favorite thing to do. I have helped a lot of kids make journals similar to these over the last several years. I volunteer to teach art in my children’s classes because I enjoy getting to know their friends & classmates. My kids go to a private school and their teachers have always worked so well with me, letting me come in whenever I can. I help the kids' work on their journals throughout the school year. Most of the children have a lot of fun and they are always excited at the end of the year when they get to bring them home. I always enjoy it too, except for all the prep work at home:)

Wow...this post blew my socks off. Has printables too. All teachers should use this!!!!!
