Stones and Mirrors

In preparing for our new adventure of Unit studies based on Before Five in a Row and Five in a Row, I took a trip to the dollar store this morning to gather up some supplies! I must say I am super excited to dive into our Units next week! I just finished up our lesson plans and I am inspired and looking forward to next week!

Luke was the first to break into some of the new items and did some mirror art today! This picture says it all 😉

lukerocka He had a great time! So much creativity came out! He first wanted to line the circle and and look at himself in the middle of it. He then decided to line up the stones straight across both mirrors and declared it a bridge and used his fingers to walk across it. He asked me to do the same with my fingers because the trip became too long!
