Time Saving Trick for Teachers!

On one of our school visits we encountered this awesome trick!  Use re-sealable plastic bags as liners for the paint pots in your Double Sided Art Easel (PDR11).  Not having to clean the paint pots out daily is a huge time saver for teachers.  

Let's take this a step further and make it more planet-friendly by using biodegradable bags found in most grocery stores. 

Get Growing with the Simple Sensory Center!

On a recent school visit, we discovered a kindergarten class had a great idea for their Simple Sensory Center (SWT)!  They used their Simple Sensory Center as a place to grow their own potatoes.  Take a look at their job well-done! 











Great Ideas Come Naturally

Kindergarten students learned about beavers and explored how beavers modify and shape their habitats. As a culminating task, students built their own beaver lodge using natural materials.  Another great alternative use for the Sand and Water Sensory Center.  We learned something new today too!
