I’m back home from a visit to Indiana this week and although the weather was frightful, the teachers were delightful! They held my hand through the ice and snow and warmed my heart. 
KIRPC Head Start, Monon, IN

Don’t you love this curtain around the interactive white board? The teacher said she bought sheets, tied the ends with ribbons, and then hung them on hooks. Show time!

You know I have a juvenile sense of humor, so this joke that Lisa Brittain shared was right up my alley.
Q: What do you call a bear with no teeth?
A: A gummy bear!!!

Paper Plate Dance Party

I gave every teacher 2 paper plates, played some catchy music, and we had a snowy day dance party. Get some plates and try some of these activities with your class this week:

  • Clap the plates like cymbals.
  • Shuffle them to the beat.
  • Tap on the hips, shoulders, and other body parts.
  • Clap high, low, in front of you, behind.
  • Play “follow the leader” as children take turns doing something with their plates as peers follow along.
  • Place on the floor. Put one foot on each plate and skate around the room.
  • Skate backwards. Skate on one foot. Skate with a friend.
