Click on the following link to access the Microsoft and Google Image clip art that I will be using for a Family "Pajamarama" program: https://docs.google.com/leaf?id=0ByZSJgcQD22tM2ZjOTcwODctN2I3Zi00OTk0LTk1ZWYtNTliOWFiYjJkNjRj&sort=name&layout=list&num=50
The program will be on Monday night at 6:30 p.m. The theme is "Starlight at Night." The opening activity is a combination rhyme, name game, and Every Child Ready to Read application.
Before the program begins, I'll invite the children to pick one of the pre-cut star graphics. The caregiver will be encouraged to teach their child about letters and writing as the child writes his/her name.
During the opening rhyme, different colors will be called, and the child with the appropriately colored star will be invited to place his/her star on the post-it sticky board (http://tinyurl.com/StickyBoard)
A colleague mentioned that these graphics could be laminated, and the names be written on them with dry erase markers. This would allow for reuse. However, I have decided to have the children take their stars home, if they choose.
(I have no time to laminate them, and it will act as a supplemental take home piece. At the very least, I can put them on display for December.)
