Christmas Parent Gift Idea for Kindergarten

For the past several years, I have done a directed drawing lesson with my students as their parent Christmas gifts. The children paint their drawings with watercolors and I frame the completed art projects in inexpensive frames from the dollar store before wrapping them up and sending them home. I have

Big Green Monster Kindergarten Watercolor Paintings

My students had a BLAST in our kindergarten classroom for Halloween last week, yet they were amazingly well behaved. We didn’t have a week full of candy and silliness. We had fun, but it was more academic in nature and it really helped my students to remain in control of

Personalized Paint Smocks

Every year my teaching partner and I put “paint smocks” on the Kindergarten supply list. We explain that it doesn’t have to be anything fancy (Dad’s old work shirt will do.) I’m sure you’re not surprised to hear that every year I have a few students that do not bring

Very Hungry Caterpillar Door Decoration

A few years ago my school held a door decorating contest in celebration of reading month. I had to dive into my photo archives for this one, but since we are currently in the midst of reading month once again, it seemed like a perfect time to share. I love
