Snowmen and Dinosaurs 2016

Yesterday was a very productive day at MCP putting away all of our Christmas activities and setting up new centers for the new year.  This should give you a good idea of what will be happening in our room the next month...

DINOSAURS...

Our art center will have dinosaur stencils that the MWF classes can trace, color and cut and add to our bulletin board.  We will make tally marks, count and press 'the easy button.'  For more ideas on bulletin boards or to see past dinosaur boards, check under the 'Bulletin Board' label.

Dinosaurs are BIG so they need BIG numbers.  Our MWF classes will have dinosaurs numbered from 12-20.  Children add stickers, a teacher checks and then students can press the 'easy button.' The TTh class will have snowmen and snowflakes numbered 4-10. This activity is located in our Discovery Center.

SNOW...
January means all things snowy in our classroom.  The tree in our garden bulletin board has lost it's leaves, the grass is covered with snow and waiting for students to create snowmen.
 

The lacing basket in our Discovery Center is filled with snowman lacing cards.
