sweatersandsand-deactivated2012 asked: I am so insanely happy that I just found this blog. I'm in school earning a degree in child development and I'll be certified in birth through pre-k education and pre-k through k special ed. Sometimes it's hard to find good pre-k ideas and I get kinda bummed out. Finding this blog made my morning :) Thanks for being awesome.
THANKS! i’ve been so busy lately, but nearly half of my school year is up and posted. I hope to get the other stuff up there and keep giving tips and ideas that i use too! if you ever need any help or ideas that you can’t find, feel free to message me any time! I have so much experience with the pk special ed as well. i’d be happy to help :)
I can’t even explain how happy this makes my little kindergarten after school teacher heart. Obsessed. If I don’t get to do this with a group of children, I WILL do this with my kids.
Every year for christmas I print out blank calendars and we do handprint art for each month! Many of these are similar, but some of these are very cute and I might try them out next time!
I’ve used: Snowflake, heart, Leprechaun, umbrella tulips, butterfly, goldfish, sun, apples, pumpkins, turkey, Santa (or dreidel)
for all you hipsters.
Or for teachers who need peanut free snacks!
Going to get these and swap them out for my Steralite Drawers on my art easel. I will keep 1 drawer set for focus materials…like felt, scraps, etc….It will all be much cuter, I think.
My trays will have:
Tray 1 = Necessities: Scissors, Glue Sticks, Kids Tape, Dry Erase Markers, Glue Bottles, Paint Brushes
Tray 2 = Crayons sorted by color
Tray 3 = Markers sorted by color
DIY Water Colours
I had posted a recipe for the same thing a few months ago and then found this more detailed blog post about how to specifically mix them. Check it out!
Another classroom application for paint chips, this time with a math emphasis [from Tattling To the Teacher ]. You could use larger paint chips with more variants of colors to convey larger numbers.
playingmylifeaway asked: Hi dear :) I was wondering if you know anything about teacher assistants (TA) and what qualifications are? I'm a sophomore P-4 Education Major and didn't know when I could apply. I take the first part of the Praxis in March I think.
hi! I think some of this will depend on the state you are in, and the facility you are looking to TA in. For example, in PA in childcare or private schools, it’s quite likely that you can apply for a TA position or Assistant Group Supervisor positions with your HS Diploma and a copy of your transcripts. You would likely have to provide documentation for 2400 hours worth of direct care with children, and meet a minimum number of credit hours, but we often hire sophomores and juniors to be teachers in our classrooms where I am at. If you are looking into TA-ing in a School District, this might be a little more stringent and you’d have to look in to each as you go. It is possible that some of these jobs would require an associates or bachelors certificate.
