Flannel Boards!

I can remember when I was a kid loving the bible stories my Sunday school teacher would tell with the flannel board.  It was so much fun retelling those stories on our own when it was our turn. 
This past year I brought the flannel board back in my classroom!
 I made some fairytale flannel board sets and the kids LOVED them!   I simply took one of my bulletin boards and covered it with fabric.  After printing and laminating the pieces to each set, I glued a piece of felt on the backs.    The language, expressions in their retell, and vocabulary were awesome to watch and listen to. 
 I just finished getting those flannel board sets ready to share with everyone.  Take a look below and click on the picture to get yours at my TpT store
Enjoy the rest of your summer!

How to build an igloo!

I am so excited to introduce my first ever, GUEST BLOGGER!!!
  Sara and I have worked together for the past two years.  She is phenomenal and has the biggest heart for pre-k kids!  

I'm so grateful to be Paula's FIRST GUEST BLOGGER!! I have been teaching Preschoolers for 3 years and having been loving every minute.  I'm a Speech-Language Pathologist who serves early childhood special education classrooms as well as articulation and language kiddos.  I'm so excited to be here at Learn + Play = Pre K to share whats going on in my speech world and learn more from the blogging community. 

Do you wanna build an igloo??? Sang Ana!

Just kidding, but doesn't everyone just love the Frozen song!! Paula always has these awesome, I mean, awesome boxes she uses in her class for her space unit for her space rockets.  I usually take her hand-me-down boxes when she is finished and I turn it into a speech cave, but this year I wanted to build an igloo!  We have a generous factory that donates their insanely large boxes to us when asked, so with the help of a sweet parent and their truck he picked one box and two lids up for me and I started the building process.  It took two of us to set it up and fit it together, thanks Paula!!  Then I put a white kings size sheet over it (found one at Ann's Linens where they sell bedding separately so it was pretty cheap, $15).  Covered the box with the sheet, cut out our igloo door, hot glued the sheet around the door and viola I now have an igloo in my speech corner that I'm certain Ana, Elsa, and Olaf would love!!

So my hopes for this igloo are:
1. Learn some new winter vocab,
2. Play flashlight vocab and speech sound hide and seek,
3. Build an Olaf inside,
 4. Have fun inside a box!!
 It's only been the first day but we were able to have some fun and learning inside of our igloo.
