Different Approaches to Matching Colors

As I mentioned before I took over a toddler classroom, the themes for the whole month of March were already done with the advantage that I can come up with the activities for what was written already.

Here is the lesson plan for the coming week:

Monday: Match the shamrock to its appropriate color

For this it can be as easy as gluing color shamrocks in construction paper matching the colors or
You can go the way I do it which is letting the kids move around... Having them sitting in circle time let them watch you place a paint bottle or different color construction paper on the floor or the table at the same time that you call the name of the color you are placing down, then call a child an give them a colored shamrock or whatever you are using to match colors and let them walk to the paint bottle to match the color and ask them what color do they have. Pretty simple, that's one way to go.

Another way to do this which is a little more fun would be having an obstacle course, place some pillows to jump over, a tunnel to go thru, a foam block to jump from, you get the idea; then explain the children while sitting in a circle what do they have to do, if possible demonstrate how to do it. Then call a child give them the colored shamrock and let them go thru the obstacle course to match it with the paint bottle that is waiting at the table :)

I'll post the rest of the week soon, hopefully tomorrow :)

Re-Finding My Passion(s) - I'm Back :)

If you have been following my blog you know that I've been absent for quite a while, life threw me a curve ball and I stopped everything I liked for a few months maybe a year; during that time I decided to try new things, new hobbies, new ways to find myself, I even opened a new blog ArtsCraftsandScraps but somehow, by God's grace I ended up doing the same thing without asking for it... Teaching Preschool.

So now I am back teaching preschool and still doing all these new hobbies that I found I like :) crocheting, knitting, art journaling, scrapbooking, and so much more.

Right now the preschool I work for is in spring break, but when I go back I'll start as a Lead Teacher in the Two Year Old Classroom, the rest of this week I'll be posting what we are going to work on for the rest of March, and after that I'll be posting themes and resources as my lesson plans continue.

Thanks for hanging out with me all this time, I hope all this resources come to help to everybody :)

I do have to apologize to the person that wrote to me trying to get some resources that I had in my 4shared account, due to inactivity they closed my account, but not to worry, I still have the files in my computer I'll try to find a way to share documents I have and if you have an idea please share with me, it would benefit a lot of people out there :)

Thank you for visiting my blog,

I would love to see you back and throwing a comment here and there :)

If You Were to Have Help...

If you were to have somebody helping you creating your lesson plans and activities for your kids, would you help her back: financially, which is faster, or exchanging services with whatever you do best, let's say a hobbie that you have or materials, supplies,etc.
What would you do?
Please take a minute to answer this short question, as it might benefit the whole online community :)

Thank You.

Is anybody having problems with Blogger?

I really don't know what's happening, I've been trying to blog for days now and is not letting me do a lot of things.

I can't highlight a word to put a link to it.
Or go back to the last sentence with my mouse, I have to do it with the up and down arrow keys of my keyboard, I have send feedback to blogger but nothing!

I am getting very frustrated that I can't blog, almost ready to give up and close my blogs, please anybody knows what's going on?

Even to start composing, the cursor doesn't show up in my box. I had to press all kinds of buttons on my mouse to make it show up.  I thought it was my mouse, but it works everywhere else in every document I tried it works highlighting words except on my blog?

Can anybody help?
