This blog is here for you to find fun learning activities to do with your children. We share great ideas we find and love on the Internet, as well as ideas we come up with on our own! We also like to share resources we find helpful.

To find ideas for your child, click on the age range blog label or on the theme/topic you are looking for (on the left side of the page). In each post, we try to list optimal age ranges for the activity, but you must judge for yourself if it is appropriate for your child.

Teacher Appreciation Week: Subway Art

Subway art is very popular right now. For one of the teacher's gifts during teacher appreciation week, I decided to make a subway art piece for each teacher.

Several weeks before the big week, I went to the school during lunch. I had written each teacher's name at the top of a piece of paper. I then walked around from table to table and asked the kids to list of adjectives they liked about their teacher. 

I then took these lists of words and made the subway art in Photoshop Elements using the words from the children. I have pictured here three examples.

There are several teachers and specialists that it is hard to get personalized words for--the resource teacher, the literacy specialist, etc. For them, I did this:

For the PE teacher, I did words like "jump" and "persevere." For the music teacher, I did musical words like "allegro" and "forte."
