What? You don't see it yet? Let me zero in on what I'm talking about...
WTF?!?! Of course, I HAD to ask the artist what this was, and his answer was, "A horse!" In my head I was asking, "Well, what part of the horse exactly?!" but out loud I just said, "Really?" He told me that this was the horse's nose and head. Um....ok....moving on....
Last Thursday, we had a math lesson that involved making patterns using craft sticks. This group had a lot of fun with this on the carpet.
Here are the little geniuses. How adorable are they!?
New Principal personally brought me a "big kid" to babysit that day. So, I put him to work, playing Chutes and Ladders with a group.
The babies love playing with dominoes. I keep waiting for them to get bored with them, but not so much yet.
This group learned to play Go Fish with me that afternoon. We started with some flashcards that had half the cards with numerals and half the cards with groups of objects. We matched those up first, then used the cards to play Go Fish.
After the group finished making craft stick patterns, I told them they could do whatever they wanted with the sticks, and this is what they came up with. Too cute!!
My little TN decided he wanted to join this group, and REALLY got into this activity.
They covered the entire rug, tracing every shape and curve.
I was really impressed with how much detail went into this little project.
A couple of the "artists" hard at work.
This was TN's crowning glory. The rest of the group was so excited about him covering the hand. It made me laugh out loud!
Ok, I know you've had enough, but I promised them I would take a picture of the WHOLE thing, so since I did, you're forced to look at it!
Here's my little darling, TN. Look at that face! Isn't he just beautiful?! I love this "little monster!!"*
Here are the snowmen we made yesterday. Suz, aren't you excited about how we recycled those packing peanuts!? These turned out really cute. Oh, and Suz, we used lids from Cool Whip, sour cream and yogurt containers for the babies to trace the circles for their snowmen.
