Today we talked about all the rules of the classroom and center. When we line up to go out of our room, I always say, "Quiet paws, quiet jaws." Sometimes I let the kids pick what animal we are and tell them we have to sneak up on our lunch (a smaller animal) or it will get away. So we walk very quietly in the hall until we get outside, then we can "chase our lunch!" They love it. However, after reading a poem called Marshmallow Toes, I couldn't resist doing an art project to go with it. I found it here, but it's originally from here. I changed it a bit, of course. I like doing that. Just tweaking something to make it my own. First, here's the poem:
Here is a picture of the display in the hallway. We have skinny halls, so it was hard to get a good picture of the whole thing.
You like? I got real lucky because I had 4 right feet and 5 left feet, so I could display them as if they were walking. As I was cutting them out I got worried that they'd be all the same foot! WHEW!! So if you plan on doing this, you might want to figure that out ahead of time (how many of each foot you need). I just let the kids pick whatever foot they wanted!
Oh, and of course I let the kids eat a marshmallow after the project!
