Moons and bunnies...

In honor of Chinese New Year's we are beginning to study the moon and soon the planets!

With this material, children follow the guide above and color in the phases of the moon.

This material has large moons with all the phases. The control of error is on the back to make sure the child has the moons in order. With this work, the children learn the concepts of waxing and waning moons.

Some of you have met our bunny, Snowbell. She loves her new home and has made a second home under our pink tower!

This material has a few steps to follow: trace, rip tissue paper and crumble up, and glue. Children need to take their time to fill up the whole bunny outline with tissue paper.

Rabbit 3 part cards. We have been exploring different rabbit breeds. This material shows only 8 rabbits, but we know there are MANY more. We used to have a Flemish Giant named Bumpkins. RIP Bumpkins.

What is YOUR favorite color?

Winter is a great time to bring color into the classroom...

Primary color work. Children of all ages enjoy this matching and tracing work.

Secondary colors.

The colorful guide helps children explore color mixing with transparent color wands.

What do you get when you mix....?
