Video to accompany this photo.
I saw this idea on the Organized Classroom Blog a few days ago. My kids are loving these “Magic Revealing Words”. I’ve got them in my art center. Be sure to follow the OC Blog if you haven’t already!
I like it!
My favorite new addition to our “learning room”. I still need to find objects for some of the cubbies. But I’m on a roll!
Bubble Wrap is a great Motivator! Write sight words on the flat part of the bubblewrap and when they a student reads or spells the word correctly, they got to pop the bubble! (You could do letter recognition, number recognition, math facts, etc.)
Pre-Reception (3-4 years) ~ Sound Table
A selection of some of the items the children have brought to our sound table, over the past academic year.
Lots of ideas for making discovery bottles for children to make and/or observe.
Saw this post and it reminded me of what the early years (0-2 years) section of the Nursery, have in one of their sensory boxes. Not quite the same, but has given me a few ideas of what kind of sensory bottles to add :D

— I’m off to my local Bonfire Night celebrations tomorrow evening, which this year, or so I’ve heard..is being set to Music!! Can’t wait to discuss this with the children on Monday!! Especially as Monday (5th November) is the official day of celebration/remembrance.
Random Fact: The day before the 5th November (4th November) is known as Mischief Night, as this was the day when the Gunpowder Barrels were planted in the Houses of Parliament.
- I’m not sure where this comes from but this night is commonly known in my area and others throughout the country. Guy Fawkes was born and educated not to far from where I reside and I have visited the city where he grew up, the church where he was baptized and the school that he attended (Yes, the School is still open and flourishing to this day). Guy Fawkes also has very strong links to the town where I live, due to his parentage and therefore… we made a big deal about this day!! ENJOY and STAY SAFE!!
A simple matching game to teach children upper- and lower- case letters.
