Save our Earth...It is the only planet with chocolate!

My reading corner is now a...Recycling Center.  
In the recycling center the students will be able to:
  • Read book about taking care of our Earth
  • Sort plastics, paper, cans, and glass
  • Make an Earth art project (I saw the idea on-line but cannot remember where...if it looks like something you posted, please comment!)  
  • Play I spy for different types of recyclables and sight words that are hanging on the newspaper wall
Mrs. Ramseier (one of the K teachers I work with...and can I say she ROCKS) had a student teacher,  Sabrina Schubert, who came up with this Recycling Center and I LOVE IT!  Thank You!

Sorting Recycling Pictures ~ I got these pictures from Color "R" World last year at the Early Childhood Conference at UW~Stout.  Wendy Sessler and Shell Sturgis are excited to re-open Color "R" World for business once again since Tami retired.
