I love how children can be involved in arriving as well as the parent's. Kids can move the rock with their name each morning. I would change the way the names are on the rocks, however, and just write or paint on them for a more natural look. - LW ---------------------------- Sign In / Attendance Idea (NO link, just image)
Exploring lines: using hand drawn lines on rocks for play. Challenging pre-writers to distinguish between straight and curved lines to help build their understanding of shape and help establish correct letter and number formation later. Visit http://youclevermonkey.com for more.
The children in art class experience what it's like to draw with their feet and mouths (and elbows!). This is not only a fun, action art experience, but it gives them a new appreciation and gratefulness for their hands.
