The first day of spring is just around the corner. Looking for a fun way to add some color to your classroom and celebrate the changing season? These beautiful hyacinths come to us from the Art Exhibit at the 2018 California Kindergarten Conference. A big thanks to Cathy Doll from San Ramon Valley USD for sharing this great idea! She used corks, paint and crayons to create these beautiful hyacinths.
This week’s Tuesday Teaching Tip is as fun as it is topical. It comes to us from former CKA Board member and TK teacher, Heather Morrow. We especially love how easily this idea could be reworked for a different theme simply by choosing a different shape and wrapping paper!
I gave pairs an outline of a tree, some strips of wrapping paper, and a star. They worked together to make a collage and decorate their tree by ripping small pieces of the wrapping paper. I think they turned out so cute!
