We started with a diagram of a tree done in black & white. I next labeled key parts of the tree. Copies were made and handed out to all. Now the fun begins !!
Ask a QUESTION & ALL SORTS OF ANSWERS start emerging.
AHHHH… This is what I am looking for… Nothing like a “CAPTURED AUDIENCE.”
Proceed to your table, color in the diagram, followed by a “ hands on project” which supports our “Topic For The Day.” (I had a ball thinking up this one!)
Listen up EVERYONE! We are going to make a tree using edibles okay?
- Sheets of foil
- Sunflower seed butter-spread on foil ( glue)
- Graham crackers- tree trunk
- Pretzel sticks- branches
- Green gum drops sliced- leaves
I am realizing as time goes on, that when I plant creative thoughts With The Little Peeps , they want to “DO THEIR OWN THING!”
I applaud AND encourage this 100%.
In the final analysis, BEING MINDFUL requires me to tap BOTH HEMISPHERES & that is where we are every Friday!!
We are having a TOTAL BALL!!
