I finished one more of my ECE classes on Saturday. It was a lot of work to prepare for but it all came together & was a very easy day overall. We even got done a couple hours early. We stayed overnight in Green Bay on Friday night so I could be at NWTC at 8am. (Damon had to take me there & help unload, etc - he was great about it!) Our group did a great job setting up our space. Another girl & I have family day cares so we had tons of material to work with. I enjoyed making some things for our environment since homemade items are recommended. Egg shakers (what I needed those plastic easter eggs for!) with rice/beans/macaroni in them, a wind chime center (the little ones love this!) & ribbon streamers for dancing to music with. Here are pictures of our finished space if you're interested (although it probably doesn't look like much to most): Music & Movement. I also turned in 8 assignments & was prepared to present 6 activities but only had to do two. Mine was an art activity & a flannelboard story. Not the two I would have picked, but no big deal. Final grades are not done yet but I'm not worried. I have the summer off & my last 3 credits for the preschool credential (18 credits) is the capstone class, where we make a portfolio, starts in September. It's amazing how much time I have in the evenings when I don't have to think about school work!
