    We are studying simple machines. I pulled together a bunch of nuts, bolts, screws and screwdrivers and put them in our sensory table with pieces of pool noodles. Our kiddos played with them throughout the day. No directions needed. What a great idea. Thanks,

  14. I teach PreK. These are great ideas for my morning “box” centers. The students sign in then go to the board to see who they are buddied up with (each box has a number and two students are assigned to each box). Then go get a box and find a place in the room to work together. This is a great way to start the day, teach sharing, make new friends, helping each other, etc. These ideas would fit in nicely with the boxes.
