It was fun talking to my preschooler's about different foods they thought they didn't like until they tried it just like the guy in the "Green Eggs and Ham" book that Sam I Am was desperately chasing around. A couple of the things mentioned were peas and watermelon! After reading the book we did a fun simple Green Eggs and Ham craft.This craft came from Funshine Express, but could easily be adapted with a simple paper plate, cotton balls and green fuzzy balls and some tissue paper.

Teea Timers are working on the “AT” family words and I wanted to show you some of the props we have been using.
These are simple color samples from Home Depot. My students love the mouse heads! I wrote on the head the uppercase letter and on the ear the same letter in lowercase and the "AT" word on the solid matching color cards for a matching game we are playing too.
Still using the mouse head letter cards I also wrote the "AT" word on large popsicle sticks so they could have a different way to play games and sound out the words.
I fliped the popsicle sticks over and actually wrote the "AT" words on the sticks for them to match the words with the beginning letter cards.
I also took some of the little foam blocks I had purchased at the Dollar Store and used a marker to write the "At" Family words, using the same color for the "A" and the "T" I wrote those letters on all sides of the block so no matter how they roll the dice those letters would come up and the other letters would roll randomly so they could put the letters together to form the word and sound the word out!
In February we had Dental Awareness week and two of our sweet preschool mommies work for my wonderful dentist and these two moms put together the fabulous goodie bags and a dental awareness program for my Teea Timers, and as you seen in the previous posts my students had a terrific time learning all about their teeth!
As a way to say thanks to Dr. Tomlinson, Kathleen and Tasha I decided to make a different kind of thank you card to give the office as a keep sake and a reminder of how people like them make a difference in a preschoolers life, after all I now have 3 and 4 year olds who want to grow up to be a dentist!!!!
So I took a pattern of a tooth and had each of the kids sign their name on one side of the big tooth.
On the backside I wrote what the student’s favorite thing was about Dental Awareness Day.
I laminated the teeth, punched a hole in each of them and put them on a ring with a happy tooth smiley face on the front.

The word TEEA (pronounced tea) is an acronym for Tailored Early Educational Adventures because we think learning should be tailored to the individual child’s age, learning style & developmental level & that the learning experience needs to be a fun adventurous experience that creates a positive learning environment for children to thrive & learn in.
