Recycled art Project

Dear Parents,


The children are so impressed with all the activities they can make out of recycled material, and how fun and easy it is to create a simple game, toy, instrument, etc. The project we propose is simple and fun! Help them create any game they want related with letters, numbers, patterns, or rhymes using all recycled materials. There are so many ideas you can use: bottle caps, plastic bottles, even a pringles can! Make sure your child puts a name to the game, and attaches the rules /how to play.


If your child needs extra help brainstorming for a game show them pictures and have them come up with one. You can Google: Games or toys made out of trash or recycled materials and you will get so many ideas!


The idea is for each child to present their game to the class, and we will place them in our Toys & Games center for the rest of the class to use. If you can send it on Friday 15th that would be great!


-Have them cut letters out of old magazines and newspapers and let them write their name, or words they are able to sound out.


-Try to read them a story at least once a day!!


-Visit the following sites:

http://www.starfall.com/

http://pbskids.org/games/


On these sites your children will have the opportunity to play educational games and interactive activities for learning math, science, reading, language, social studies and more.


If you have any questions please feel free to contact us at any time.

We would love to see pictures of you and your children creating these fabulous games!!


Kind Regards,

PK.4 Team
