I have let my preschool bin go un-updated (is that a word?). This has recently caused me a lot of problems with Anthony wanting to do something, but not knowing what to do. Today I decided it was time to rotate and replenish my preschool bin and I spent the morning busy buying supplies and raiding my craft bins. I'm hoping these activities will last me a bit. I became rather lazy over the holidays, but have now come to realize just how important the preschool bin is in our daily life. It keeps little kids busy, while giving me time to teach the older kids. Here is a list of what I have added today. Perhaps I'll add more later, once my resources are dwindling again.
-Contains envelopes, labels, paper, and stickers.
-Contains varied colored pom-poms to sort out into colored cups with a small spoon.
-Contains both glue stick and white glue, scissors, construction paper and paper scraps.
-Contains some homemade cards to match.
