Ribbon painting in preschool

One of the things I love most is to build an entire day around music or even build an entire day around one single preschool song.

Ribbon Sorting

When I write songs, I am always visualizing the many amazing things that can be done with that song. Today I added the Ribbon Song to my fingerplay blog and in my mind I visualize children ribbon dancing, sorting ribbons by color, painting with ribbons, and comparing the length and width of ribbons. The ideas are truly endless!

Love the ribbon painting. I’ve not seen that particular technique. Thanks for sharing.

I’m terrible at tying things together in class thematically. I’m going to try this one!

Tom – I am the opposite – I tend to look at everything thematically and do not have the gift of spontaneity like you do. I have to work on that more:)
