# Deep Space Sparkle

Working on weaving in preschool I have learned so much from others since I started Teach Preschool. I am always amazing at the creativity of all the other bloggers out there and I am constantly sharing the ideas I read about with the teachers and children from my school. As I continue the process of setting up classrooms, I want to add fresh ideas for play in the centers/shelves. I have seen the idea of weaving all throughout blog land and then I stumbled on these blue baskets in the Dollar store and knew they would be perfect for a weaving activity in the Fine Motor center. I purchased four of the baskets for this classroom.

Emotion Word Cards for Pre-K and Kindergarten Social Studies Today I’m adding a set of Emotion Word Cards to the Picture-Word Card collection. I prefer to use picture-word cards in a pocket chart near my writing center. That way, the children can take them out of the pocket chart and take them to the table if they want to copy the words onto their paper. The children know to return the card back to the pocket chart when they are finished.

Japanese Notan This week, 5th graders will be considering line and shape as they create positive and negative space in a Notan-inspired collage. We'll begin by looking at some examples of the Japanese tradition as well as some more contemporary collages. Examples include symmetrical and assymetrical designs. I plan on having students prepare their base paper by applying strips of a musical score, which will show beneath their cut paper work, creating a first layer. Next they will fold their square of black paper in fourths, write the word fold by the 2 folded edges and cut out shapes along the 2 outside edges (the edges NOT folded).
