Paper Plate Bears

Use small and large paper plates to make a bear.  Paint the plates brown.  Attach construction paper arms and legs with brads to make the bear moveable.

Glue shredded coconut onto a paper plate to create a Polar Bear.

Hi everyone.  After searching online for ways to share my teaching ideas/curriculum with others, I stumbled upon Teachers pay Teachers (TPT), a website that allows teachers to create, share, and sell their lesson plans with others.  Check out my thematic units by clicking here on the link below or by clicking on my store on the right. 
Besides creating fun lessons, I also like to look for and create practical solutions for the classroom.  When I first began teaching Pre-Kindergarten, I began to collect a lot of children's books.  Because I like to teach using thematic units, I wanted to develop a way to sort my books by themes.  Solution . . . book drawers, AKA, 3-drawer containers.  Books 8 1/2" X 11" will fit inside the drawers.  Depending on the thickness of the books, typically 10 books will fit in each drawer. The drawers and the inside covers of the books are labeled with the themes so I know exactly where each book goes.
It's great to have a bright, colorful rug for Circle Time, but classroom rugs can be very pricey.  Another solution is to use large interlocking foam mats.  I bought a set of 6 for $13 on sale at K-mart last year, but you can find them in various locations at a reasonable price.
