Painting the easy way with Kwik Stix!

If your students are like mine ...they love to paint. With everything we have to do to set up paints that does not happen...so often...until now!! 
We have found the answer to quick easy painting and no mess! 

We love to go out in our sensory garden and paint. We grab some Kwik Stix and we are all set. Before we would have to pour paint, bring paint brushes and worry about the clean up. 
I can't tell you how much time Kwik Stix  has saved us!

Our latest project with our Kwik Stix was decorating our pumpkins. We were learning about  different shapes, counting and having fun learning.

 Using Kwik Stix makes it even more fun ~ by adding all the beautiful colors to our pumpkins too!

 The best news is that Kwik Stix are at Target now! One of the best products I have in my classroom. Student and Teacher approved!!!

KEVA Brain Builders in Kindergarten!

Hi Friends! I am always looking for products that have my kinders thinking and constructing! 
Well we had the opportunity to try KEVA Brain Builders and KEVA Brain Builders Jr!

KEVA building sets inspire the creativity in kids of all ages and skill levels. KEVA building sets capture the imagination lengthening attention spans, deepening concentration and building excitement. It’s no wonder that KEVA planks have caught the attention of Mensa, DreamWorks and Destination Imagination! It’s easy to bring this magic into your home or classroom and watch young minds stretch and grow. Lesson plan focus includes letter building, counting and number recognition.

The brain builders sets come in this nice and easy pouch. Very easy to put away and have ready for next time.  There are pictures that the students can use to create their own  3D models. This was a great center and my kinder kiddos could do both the KEVA Brain Builders and also the Junior Brain Builders!
Here is what the products provide for students:

• Strengthens STEM, fine-motor, strategy, physics and basic engineering skills 
• A new and exciting way to experience KEVA planks—perfect for on-the-go learning
• Includes 20 durable planks, 20 double-sided cards in a zippered carrying case
• Junior addition to our original Brain Builders set


Here are some pictures of my kiddos building at center time. They loved it!
