If your child's craft does not look like a bear, a flower, a pumpkin or whatever---no worries. We are just starting the year. We know sitting with friends with colorful paper and a bottle of glue is hard. The children are learning how to use an appropriate amount of glue, how to pick up sticky gluey pieces and soon we will be cutting & snipping shapes together. Please note---we do not move or relocate pieces that the children place incorrectly. Your child's work is their work. We are working really hard on listening to teacher directions as a group.

Lacing cards are a very important part of the MCP curriculum. We have lacing cards available for the children everyday. After your child laces a card, we do not rip out their work for the next student. Your child may take the lacing card home! This is an important difference in purchased lacing cards. We are working on strengthening those very important fine motor skills---building strength to hold a pencil, crayon, paint and scissors. When a child gets to keep their work, they are more likely to participate in the activity.
Lacing cards are easy to make at home with your child. Old greeting cards and cereal boxes make colorful cards that will interest your child.
