busy hands

writing a Montana animal book

making a display with numerals and counters

creating turkey art

matching objects to pictures

buttoning turkey tail feathers

sewing buttons, the lesson

sewing buttons, in action

two friends, engaging in parallel work

one pushing pipe cleaners, one stringing beads


  1. Hi! I love seeing your children in action. I also wanted to tell you I love your pipe cleaners activity and am putting up a post tomorrow with my variation of it. Of course I've credited you with the inspiration!! Don't you just love blogging??

  2. Oh wow... that "sewing a button" activity looks great! I want to make a larger (still scaled) version with a 3-4" disk and perhaps plastic canvas.

    Also, that "montana animal book" looks great. In my classroom, I have lots of dinosaurs and big plastic animals, so this might be a good way to introduce the names of the animals!

  3. I am so inspired by your blog- I will be a regular reader! I was laughing though- in the photo of parallel work with the two girls, I have the same metal tray with wood handles and small wooden box with the round top from thrifting adventures. Where does this stuff come from that such random unique pieces show up in multiple thrift stores?
