One of the things I enjoy most about teaching and classroom set up is making my own games and other materials for use in the classroom. Sometimes the things I make are simple and work out great in the classroom and other times the things that I make need a little tweaking along the way. In either case, I love the challenge of creating new teaching tools that I can use in my classroom or new games and tools that my students can explore in their own unique ways.
Here are some of the games my teachers and I have made for our classroom...
Creating a DIY tabletop puppet stage and telling the story of The Three Little Pigs! My kids loved it!
Make your own letters and numbers for the light table with colored glue and cookie cutters!
