Our Block Area has some new editions:) Meet the Family:) I used some wood blocks that I got for 50 cents at a thrift store(a gallon size bag). I colored them with sharpies.
We paired the little family with our furniture from our fire station and the kiddos all loved it. Caden and a Friend put this little house together.
On our white board we have a little Solar System action(Caden's Favorite Subject). As you can see we have a poster and planet, sun and asteroid belt magnets that I made.
Here they are in order.I also have a ring of fact cards that Caden loves to read with me (from a work book from costco).
If you want to make your own: I got the styrofoam balls from the dollar store in a bag, I sliced a slice off of the back of each one, painted them and stuck magnets on the back. Easy, fun and less then 2 bucks.
We have large side walk chalk at the easle and it's the really bright Safari chalk so the kids have really enjoyed it.
Nate hung up my old chalk board for me. The kids have their easle so Nate put this up high for me to write the letter of the day or whatever other things we are foucusing on. It's fun to have a little spot where I can get creative:) It's hanging above our white board.
Jack's Shelf: Stacking Cubes, Shape Sorter, Vehicle puzzle(that he is so CLOSE to mastering!), Name Tracing Plate, Vehichle puzzle, Nesting Barrlals, and his "Messy Tub" has plastic balls with a scoop and basket.
On the shelves we have this push pin activity. It's just large push pins and a cork board.
On the rest of the shelf we have all the basics with some twists:)
This little spot is for Caden's BOB books that he has already passed off. I told him that he can put a sticker up for himself everytime he reads a book on his own. No pressure. When he fills it in he gets to pick out a new book at Costco. I'm leaving it in his hands to see what he does with it.
