Are you a teacher?

I have taught my kids preschool classes for a few years now. I love incorporating art into their learning environment. It encourages creativity and a desire to learn at the same time. Some kids will spend hours on creative activities, some a few minutes. I like to let them guide themselves through the process. It is during this time of free play that children develop critical thinking skills that will help them throughout their life. Overtime as they come and do the activities I find their attention span increases and they learn more.

Favorite Back to School Supplies
Here is a post I put together on my favorite Crayola back school supplies with helps from some teachers.
One of the most useful items for teachers are the classpacks Crayola offers. They come in crayons, markers, colored pencils, glitter glue, paint brushes, model magic, silly putty, and combination sets.
