Stepping away from K for a moment

My son was a huge hit at a St. Louis Blues game not too long ago. I am on spring break now and I was able to figure out youtube. Check out the video. He is hysterical. This has absolutely nothing to do with kindergarten or education - just me being proud of my kid!

Let's Go Blue!!!!!!!

Easter (and Spring break) are Almost Here!

I had another great lunch with the St. Louis Blogging Ladies. Pictures to come soon.  In the mean time I have realized I don't really have an original idea.  All of my teaching ideas have come from other sources.  What follows are some great resources for Christian classrooms to use.

Here are some great books to read with your class ...

The Parable of the Lily: Special 10th Anniversary Edition (Parable Series)

The Berenstain Bears and the Easter Story (Berenstain Bears/Living Lights)

The Story of Easter (Trophy Picture Books)

The Story of the Resurrection Eggs in Rhyme & Song (Parenting)

I love the sight word book "Where Was Jesus" from Hubbards Cupboard.  There are some great craft ideas on this page as well.  Check out these Sun Catchers!

There are also some great songs at the bottom of the page.

Christian Preschool Printables has some great resources as well.  The picture quality that I have here isn't that great so click on the link to take a look.

Make your own Resurrection eggs ...

Easter memory match ... I just make one copy, cut them apart and use them in my writing center with Deedee Wills Writing Workstations for April.

Ok ... time for me to decide what I'm doing tomorrow.  Hopefully I'll have some pictures up soon.  If not, I know I'll have some time over spring break (3 MORE DAYS!!!!)

I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength!  Philippians 4:13
