Sunday Community

I thought that it might me nice to have a new Sunday edition where everyone shares some of their classroom plans for the week. 

I am a big believer that preschool teachers should all work together and share great ideas, how else can we provide the best classrooms for our children?

So, I want to know, what are your plans in your classrooms this week?

I am not teaching preschool (Early Years in the UK) but I love your blog as I teach children with SLD (Special Educational Needs) and have two preschoolers of my own, so a lot of what you say resonates in one way or another.

One of the things my children made me promise that we will do this week is "Wax Creations" - we sharpen crayons with pencil sharpeners then put the shavings between a folded piece of paper. I iron the paper and then the kids paint their wax resist designs with watercolours.

I have also resolved to do more sensory play with my two year old (and my 4 yo). I gave him some shaving foam today and he was so deeply engrossed for ages.

Ooh, I like that crayon one. I've done it on wax paper but never on plain paper and then done a watercolor resist. I love it!

Shaving cream is my favorite activity.

My brother works with develpmentally delayed teens and adults as well and I find that the two of us really think the same in our classroom philosophies.

Thanks for sharing! And thanks for reading!
