The Best Day!

I have a little girl in my class, quite a chatterbox really. Every time we do something new, it doesn't matter how trivial I think it is, she says "I love doing this! This is the best day!" I don't know about you, but I've been experiencing stress lately. We all have a myriad of stressors coming at us from all angles everyday. Can we still see all the little wonders and say "This is the best day! I love doing this!"?

Dr. Seuss, Things 1 and 2

My digital camera died, and so this picture is taken from my computer which takes mirror image pictures, that is why this project looks backwards. Anyway, I love Dr. Seuss and one of my favorite things about Kindergarten is that we make up holiday's to celebrate so I jump at the chance to celebrate Dr. Seuss' birthday. This project came to me on through pinterest and I don't know the origin but I love this one. The kids trace their shoes for the bodies and their hands for the hair and draw the rest. It is fun, cute and ties in several fine motor skills and direction following practice. Enjoy!
