Cool math idea with playing cards
Love this math station I spotted in 5th grade recently. Students use playing cards to find range, median, and mode. Fun and simple activity! Playing cards fanned out in a holder are used to determine range, median, and mode. Have a game similar to this with playing cards.
4th grade math - good idea! Use jumbo playing cards on a tri-fold board! this is way too old for pre-k but my fellow teachers HOW great right?

Cutest clay pot snowmen!!
Holiday, Terra Cotta, Crafts Ideas, Christmas Crafts, Winter Crafts, Snowman Crafts, Flower Pots, Christmascrafts, Clay Pots
Terra Cotta Pot Snowmen Designed by Amanda Formaro for Craftown.com All Rights Reserved I was inspired to make these from a clay pot snowman project I saw on Hobby Lobby. They painted their scarves, I decided to use Mod Podge and scrapbook paper. They used clay for the noses, but my faces are all painted. These cute little snowmen would make wonderful teacher's gifts! You will need terra cotta pots acrylic paint: white, black, orange, pink scrapbook paper scissors Mod Podge or white craft glue black Sharpie marker pom poms and ribbon for earmuffs OR old glove or sock and ribbon for hat instant grab glue What you do Paint terra cotta pots white and set aside to dry. 1 Measure the rim of the terra cotta pot, then cut scrapbook paper strips in that width. Use a paintbrush to add Mod Podge or watered down white glue to the rim, then press the paper onto the rim. You will have to hold the paper in place for a minute until the glue grabs. Set aside to dry. 2 Meanwhile, make a hat by cutting the fingers off of a knit glove. 3 When the pot is dry pipe some instant grab glue around the bottom of the terra cotta pot. Pull the elastic wristband of the glove over the bottom end of the pot. Fold the wristband upward to look like the brim of a winter hat. 4 Tie a ribbon around the open end of the glove and tie in a knot, then tie a bow. 5 To make earmuffs, glue ribbon and pom poms to the pot instead. Dip a small scruffy paintbrush into pink paint and dab off the excess until the brush is just about dry. Dab on the cheeks with the dry pink brush. 6 Add nose with a liner brush and orange paint. Add the facial features with the handle end of a paintbrush dipped in black paint (dotted mouth and eyes) and a Sharpie marker (wiggly smile). Let everything dry then put a light coat of Mod Podge over the face and other white areas, taking care not to hit the hat or ear muffs.

Snow Paint. When it dries, it's this soft spongy art project. To make your snow paint, com bine equal parts white glue & shaving cream! this sounds fun for winter crafts!
Puffy Paint. LOVE LOVE LOVE this! Tried it with my School Skills kids Friday and it is SO cool! There are a few recipes on the web that are much more complicated, but may have more the consistency of store-bought puff paint. You can even add a little bit of washable paint to this to make different colors! Another pinner said "When it dries, it's this soft spongy art project. To make your snow paint, com bine equal parts white glue & shav ing cream! I love this stuff. Makes great snowmen."

#favorite #quote #johnlennon
Being that no one gave him credit, this is a John Lennon quote, but this one is my favorite quote
"when I was 5 years old, my mom always told me that happiness was the key to life. when I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down 'happy.' they told me I didn't understand the assignment, and I told them they didn't understand life." #quote
So true, just want to be happy :)
