T.H.I.N.K Bracelets

I got an idea from We are trying think bracelets. THINK stands for Thoughfulness,Helpful,Intelligent,Necessary,and Kind. Think before you speak. They may be too young but we'll try it. We strung alphabet beads on a black narrow ribbon so far they have lasted but Jon can get out of his. The project cost $2.00 for the beads from the dime store and I already had the ribbon in my artsy box from another project.

It's been a crazy month of January. Aaron has been working alot with the kids. I have a valentines unit prepared but they wanted to study Woodpeckers. I printed a file folder game Noahs Ark Sorting which sorts animals by Mammals or Birds&Reptiles. We are watching closly the birdfeeder Poppa made and Aaron put up in the front yard for us.Yesterday we had chickadees and squirels.

I printed out a tanagram patterns set from a montessori site and cut the tanagram from foam one set for each. I put a hole punch in the corner of the patterns to put them on a ring. This helps keep them all together better. Trick is they don't know they're learning math. Jon stuck to it better than Liz who was much better at doing this.
