June’s Frugal Teacher Tip

AA045737 Mailbox filled with mailYou likely receive lots of junk mail; why not put it to good use?  Grocery inserts are great for children to cut, perfect in a dramatic play home center or grocery store.  You can go a step further and create a matching game or a picture grocery list.

Another thing that comes in the mail is credit cards.  These pretend cards are great to bring in to the children.  Children will have fun playing with them in dramatic play or if you have an abundance you can have them for sorting.  They also can be used for stencils or rubbings in the art area.

 

 

Dr. Seuss Family Literacy Night

20130301_170012

For the third year in a row I organized our Dr. Suess Family Night.  The event is primarily geared for preschool age children but we had children from infants to 4th grade in attendance.  This year we had 38 children and their parents attend.  It was another successful event!  We had 3 stations set up with readers reading Dr. Seuss books and three rooms full of Dr. Seuss activities.  We had art, science/sensory, graphs, games and more for children to explore with their parents.  Below are a few pictures of how the event was set up:
