Our Shelves~ May
Well I have finally gotten around to making trays for our classroom! I have decided that the best thing for us will be to make a few trays every now and again, but to focus on the regular works. This will take a lot of pressure off of me so that I be a better mommy! So our theme is plants and here is what I have:
Pouring with a funnel
Sponge Tong Tower
Q-tips in a honey bear. This idea is from Chasing Cheerios
Tray for washing Metal Insets. Pup uses markers with them all the time, so they get really dirty. This way the clean up gets done and some practical life is done too!
I also have a tray with pages for Bunny to make Parts of a flower, tree, and leaf books. She got to work on it right away!
Here is her results
What are you doing with your kiddos this month?

I agree with you! i do the same, I come up with new trays based on D’s interest or rather disinterest in trays. I find that it works best for us if
i do that rather than change them monthly based on themes. I love how you came up with the metal inset cleaning work, I do the same based on the needs of the day!

I love it! We’ve been going over parts of a tree because JR just noticed the roots that were showing through the ground. He had a lot of questions so I think I’ll do a parts of a tree lesson. We’ve also been working a lot of the sandpaper letters because the for the first time JR said he wants to read. 🙂

Thanks everyone! We like the tray so far. I think if I keep them simple, then I dont feel so bad about changing them if the girls are done with them sooner then we are done with our theme!
Lori~ That is great for JR!!!!!! Maybe you’ll have a reader soon! Good for him!
