twinkle, twinkle

Standard

First week back – I’m glad it’s over – it made me very tired!  But it was a good week – and the children are excited about our unit on Space!  So, I’m happy.

For art last week, we made stars to hang from the ceiling.  I die-cut white stars from construction paper and then I gathered collage materials that were either silver or gold for them to glue on – tissue paper, tinsel, garland, glitter, fabric – anything I could find!  I set the stars, glue bottles, and all the materials out on a table and told them to make stars!  They really enjoyed this project – and I enjoy seeing them hanging up and sparkling as I walk into our room!  Sometimes, a little bit of bling is a good thing!  🙂

To go along with this we learned that the closest star to earth is our sun, stars are made up of gas, they twinkle because the air around earth moves, and a group of stars is called a constellation.  Some of my parents came in very impressed with what their children have learned so far!  I couldn’t help but smile!

About deepbluetide

I am a pre-kindergarten teacher at a private christian school. I work mornings with 4 year olds (most of whom enter my class in July still being 3 - they're babies!) and then in the afternoon work "daycare" - which is basically my own class combined with 5 year old children. One things for sure - it's never dull! I had no idea growing up I would be teaching pre-k today! It took me totally off guard - but in the end I wouldn't change a thing! I have worked with children whose age range is 6 weeks through 12 years. In the end I have decided that my current age group is my favorite! And in case you were wondering - all names mentioned are changed to protect the identities of those involved. Enjoy!
