*Reading enhancing the learning environment

One of my favorite things is to dye rice with acrylic or tempra paint!  These colors from S & S Worldwide do not disappoint.  They are so vibrant.

We dyed the rice yellow, orange and red.  We kept with the color theme and added tweezers from Learning Resources, cups from Ikea, and it wouldn't be complete with a wonderful book about thankfulness.  Llama Llama books are always a big hit with kids.

Fall sensory bins are my favorites!  I love incorporating real objects from nature and the colors always bring a smile to my face.

This bin contains real pinecones that the kids and I picked from the ground outside.  The acorns were donated to us and we're so thankful.  The wood chips were purchased from Lakeshore Learning ($14.99 for 100 pieces).  These leaves are silk leaves so this bin can be used over and over again.
