Cooking with children helps develop their math skills and helps them to learn how to follow directions. It also allows for some great conversation! Ask many questions while cooking with your children to encourage conversation! Be sure to ask specific themed questions while making these fun snacks!
Of course! Bring in an air popper and make popcorn in your classroom! Add melted butter, Parmesan cheese or other toppings.
EXTENSION: While the popcorn is popping, give the children white lunch bags/sacks to decorate for their popcorn!
Circus Theme Ideas to Transform Your Dramatic Play Area
Time To Play!
Setting up your dramatic play area for this theme will be limited only by your imagination! Turn a box or small table into a ticket booth; tape jump ropes on the floor for the children to balance on; provide themed stuffed animals for the children to train; provide extra chairs for the "audience"; hang a parachute over this area to set the theme!
More Than Just Painting (Although that is always THE favorite in our classroom!)
Easel: Balloon Painting - Instead of paint, put out three cups of colored water--red, yellow and blue. The children brush different colors on their papers to create different colors and different balloon shapes.
