Sunday funday! I hope you’re all having a wonderful weekend whatever you’re getting up to. Don’t forget our puzzles are ready to ship and make great Christmas presents. There’s only a couple of the Call of the Wild one left 😱 captured so beautifully by the gorgeous @hannahjcallow ✨
We have been waiting for soooooo long to use the Kmart eyes in a #TopTeacherPlayTray 👀 and what better time to use them than Halloween?! This playtray is awesome for those little learners who love experiencing different textures. There is definitely something *interesting* about the feeling of cooked, cold spaghetti 😜
You could also add an additional element for those students who like having a little extra direction by writing numbers on the back of the eyes and then having them count out that number of spiders. Using these fun scoop scissors is also a great way to develop their grasp strength for sustained pencil holding.
Check out our stories to see this playtray in action!

Do you ever have a day where you feel like your kids are just so deliciously adorable and smart that you are in utter disbelief and your heart is gonna explode?? I especially felt like that watching them during Preschool here. It was such a booming success, and I couldn't believe all the light and eager learning just radiating from their sweet little beings! 😍 If only I could bottle up their enthusiasm and sell it... The girls were so excited during Circle Time, trying to guess what I had set up for them to play with during Preschool. I even gave them clues by wearing my Happy Camper t-shirt and reading "Maisy Goes Camping". Upon reveal, they loved the setup, and we had lots of extended cooperative play in the "campsite". For Art we made Magic Wands with sticks, washi tape, and ribbons, and for Snack they cut up some "mystery plums" that they chose from the Farmer's Market the other day. Even Outside Time saw some more camping play, and the girls made dirt houses and found a real "Bear Cave" spot in the yard!

🕷Counting with Spiders🕷 activity...
Before kids can learn to count they need to understand one-to-one correspondence.
When kids begin to count objects, they often assign more than one number to an object because they have not yet mastered one-to-one correspondence. Lets say I have a handful loose buttons and ask kids to count them. A child who hasn’t mastered one-to-one correspondence, points to one button and says “one, two”. Then, he or she points to another button and says “three”. Finally, the child points to yet another button and says “four, five”. This child is able to recite the numbers in correct order but did not actually count the buttons.
When a child has mastered the concept of one-to-one correspondence he or she is able to assign one number to each object as they are counted. One way to help kids understand that one number word is assigned to only one object is to ask kids to touch an/or place objects as they count them.
Using a five or ten frame is a great way to provide kids with a system to organize and match objects as they count them. Ask kids to place one object in each square as they say each number. It may take some time for kids understand the concept, so keep practicing.
🕷🕸 Here is an activity which will help in practicing one to one correspondence. Simply match the spider to the given numbers in the matrix grid.

Another fun craft to hang up and create a Chinese environment for your kiddos. I found these free leaf 🍁 templates on Pinterest. Let my daughter go to town on them (she’ll paint anything you give her 👩🏻🎨) and then wrote 秋天的葉子 on them. They’re hanging up on our door, exposing her to more Chinese around our house 🙌🏼🍂🎉
What fun things are you doing to help expose your kids to more Chinese? Love to hear your ideas too! Please share below 👇🏼
We have been so busy with all the Fall festivals and Halloween parties, but I’m loving all this fun time I get to spend with my kiddos!
🌿 Here is a quick activity that can be done even with the most little ones. All you need is an ice mold! We used a pumpkin ice mold and added some color to our water 😁
🌿 For BABIES it’s a sensory activity, can be done as young as 3 months (or when your baby is good at holding his head up and enjoys touching things). Make ice, put it on a shallow tray (baking sheet works great!) and lay your baby in front of it on his tummy. Let him touch and shuffle the ice cubes all over the tray. Describe the ice cubes as you play together! .
🌿 Older babies and TODDLERS - add a few bowls and tongues, let them explore this SCIENCE activity. Point out that the ice melts and becomes water again.
ALWAYS REMEMBER TO SUPERVISE AND GUIDE YOUR CHILD. #activelearning#littlelearners#earlychildhood

Do you know Tempera paint sticks? I always wondered about this and finally I bought her a set of Tempera paint sticks for a reward(she did so well in her dental clinic and I am so proud of her!)🧚🏻♀️⭐️ she loves painting with it cause the colors are so vibrant and it has a bit soft texture. She drew so many unique rainbows with her new paint tools!🍒
Feature Friday: We have been Fall Breakin’ so I’m a little late on my feature today, but I’m very excited to share with you some work of one of my very own Art Smart students, and how his work is going to be used to give back to other kids and families. A few weeks ago a sweet mom came to me and asked if I’d be interested in helping her son work on a painting for an art auction to benefit The Gift of Adoption - TN Chapter. Um, would I? Yes! I’d be thrilled to help with this!
So, fast forward, and my sweet student needed to come do a make up class. We did the make up class and the auction painting session on the same day. What fun we had! The first pic is the painting he made with me anticipating it being the one for the auction. We had lots of fun with poured paint, water beads, and different brush techniques. I think he totally nailed it! The second pic is the finished “Birds in the Grass”, painting I may or may not have joked earlier about taking for myself. 😉 And, the third painting is another canvas he whipped up of our beloved Golden Retriever. I love them all and am curious which one the “jurors” will chose for the auction.
If you are in the middle TN area won’t you consider supporting this lovely fundraiser? It’s a very affordable ticket price saving you lots of money for bidding on art to help families through the process of adoption. You might even be able to snag one of these paintings from my precious student who used his own free time to give back. What could be more wonderful?! Last pic gives you all the info. you need for the event.
