I hope to use this site to share the many experiences I have free stuff for preschool teachers by mail with preschoolers during my 20 years of teaching. I would like to share crafts, activities, and some insights.
Do you have an idea that you would like to share with the readers? I love sharing fresh new ideas. I think the time has come to let Preschool Playbook take a bow. I have been writing since 2008.
I have shared with everyone ideas, crafts, tips, values, etc. I thought were so much fun, or of such importance. Through the years I have taken readers through our years at school. You have played with us, you have created with us, you have learned with us.
But, I have shared everything I have. You now know everything I know–not too much huh? I am leaving Preschool Playbook out there in cyberspace because I truly believe that it contains so much helpful information for parents and teachers alike. I hope there are still many that can find usefulness in the material here.
I love everything on this site. I myself visit to remind me of certain activities, or even to find something for a special day. You may hear from me occasionally, if a great new idea comes along, but for the most part I have already shared it all. I humbly thank each and every reader I have ever had. So many of you have brightened my days with your fun comments and even helpful suggestions. I wish you all joy, luck, and great happiness.
Our past week the children at our school spent time getting to know themselves and their friends. We had a wonderful week full of exciting activities. The Pre-K class spent the first couple of weeks reviewing colors and shapes, next week we start our Alphabet Books. Some of the activities we did included a friendship wreath and a class mural for the three-year-olds. We paint a mural every year and I am always trying to figure out the best way to set it up so that the three’s can reach everywhere to paint the paper. This year I think I finally came up with a decent idea. I turned a table on its’ side, then taped the paper to it so it was like an easel.
This way the children could reach the middle of the paper as well as the edges. The Pre-K was also very busy. We read the story “The Crayon Box That Talked,” and created crayons to decorate the room. The New Year is Here–School Year That is! I just wanted to wish everyone out there a wonderful, happy, exciting, magical, and thrilling new year. This week we are meeting all of our families and the children we will be with this year.
