I posted before that I had made these darling felt fish last week. They have washers for mouth so that the little magnets on the fishing pole can "catch" them. One piece of advice if you plan to make some for the kids, I had better luck with the felt decorations than with the jewels, etc. I put the number of each fish on the tails, so they have to learn to sight identify the numbers from 1-12. BUT, no matter how you do it, the kids will love them--at least this group of kids do!! I promised them today if they got their work done they could "fish" and voila, it worked!!
This is my experience with coloring pasta. This is the craft ingredients we used for today, January 24, 2012 RED and Purple
YELLOW and BLUE
Our letter this week is "M" so the pasta was used to fill in the M This is my sample
Here is Rockwell creating his design and wondering if the pasta would be good to eat--NOT!
This is Oakley's design
Oakley is having a closer look and added a few more things
Rockwell's finished design COOL!
They each got to make a necklace from the pasta, too. Rockwell camoflaughed his, making it this bright red.
Oakley is busily threading his necklace, and he too chose red
While Oakley finished his project (by the way, today only these two boys attended class)
Rockwell cut some scissor exercises and proves that he REALLY has improved in his cutting skills this year.
Ahem, as Oakley finishes his necklace, Rockwell decided he wanted to use the little sweeper to clean the floor around his table. Good job Rockwell!! The kids love using this little sweeper and I encourage the cleanup!!
And Oakley even threaded his own needle while he worked on the necklace--good thing as I could hardly see the "eye" and he performed the little exercise with ease
Another happy day at the preschool!! Thanks, boys, it was a successful day
