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!
