First Week Back....Old lesson plans

Being back to work after 7 short weeks is like starting a new job.  I forgot our routine and could not remember the words to songs!  Luckily, the kids reminded me of all things forgotten. ;)  I had attempted to write lesson plans while I was at home, but could barely get the first week written down.  It's just a good thing that I keep the lesson plans of years past!  So, here are a few photos I took this week (I did remember to do that!) and here is a link to these same projects we did last January.

Snowy Forest: Block trees, forest animals and styrofoam

Finger Skating: finger paint and foil

Ice Skating: Take off your shoes and slide, spin and skid across the floor to classical music

Ice Cream: Shaving Cream, paint and white glue

Recycled card igloos

Icy Observations: using bowls and muffin pans freeze small toys and talk about how to get them out


  1. Welcome back to school! I am on the other end. . . going to be going on a maternity leave. I really feel for you! I will send positive thoughts your way that you enjoy your days at work and get to rush home to your baby cakes!

  2. I love the ice one and my son loves any kind of water (frozen or not .. lol)

I'd love to hear what your thoughts are...leave a comment! :)
