Shades of Feelings: Paint chip cards on a binder ring. Kids can help create these. The cards are filled with verbs or adjectives then used as a resource for writing. These would also be great to use for children who have trouble expressing their feelings. Instead of words, little pictograms could be drawn & the child can choose which color they are "feeling" like today, & how intensely.
Kissing Hands: An idea that can have very comforting effects.

Alphabet Lids 💡 ages 3-6 💡 We love this idea of using beverage container lids to practice learning letters. We used orange juice lids and milk carton lids (which happen to fit perfectly inside the orange juice lids). Write uppercase letters on the large lids and lowercase letters on the small lids and ask them to find the matching letters. So simple and fun! Thank to Mrs. F. for this awesome idea! 👍🏻 #prek #kindergarten #preschool #diy #homeschool #homeschooling
