This was kind of random, but I am working at a preschool that is in an Elementary school right now, and when I was walking down the hall today I saw this outside of one of the rooms and thought it was amazing. We have a lot of days when kids need to bring boots to school for either rain or snow. Most teachers have their students put their boots in the hall along the walls, and it can sometimes get really messy, with boots everywhere and all mixed up. This teacher has small numbered stickers along the bottom of the wall, where student can put their boots in their own spot. Great way to keep the halls looking neat and organized!

Chester the Raccoon

Since it was the first week and a half of school, we read The Kissing Hand by Audrey Penn in class. The students talked about Chester Raccoons fears and how he felt better when he had his mother's kiss in his hand. We then had the students use simple shapes to create their own Chester the Raccoon in the art center. They used crayons, glue sticks, and construction paper.

After they were finished I displayed them in the hall with a Chester's kissing hand in the center.
