My name is Karen Harrington and my husband Bill and I have been married almost 29 years and live in Hoover, Alabama. We are proud parents of one son who like me, he wants to make this world a better place, so he has joined the Anniston Police Department. For my part, I teach pre-school at a VERY large, local Baptist Church. My goal in teaching is to show my students that everyone is an individual and it is okay to be the way the Lord made you. Be comfortable and happy with who you are.
I added a new fine motor skill activity to my classroom this week. It has been a HUGE hit with the class. Again, this is something that cost me NO MONEY! I'm sure you can tell by the picture, you need a paper plate (or bowl), a plastic spoon, old water bottle and some marbles. The object of the game is to spoon the marbles into the bottle WITHOUT using your hands.
You can use a larger mouthed bottled and put the marbles in a bowl to make it easier for the younger children. My class LOVES this and they are really getting to be very good at it too! I hope you try this and if you do, leave me a comment or a link to you blog please.
