Sewing memory game


Hello everyone

While I was still a little girl, I decided to be a teacher in kindergarten. Perhaps this is because I liked to be in kindergarten, loved my teachers. Maybe because I loved my aunts that I had a lot of and most of them were teachers, professors … And maybe because I like to learn new things, and later to learn others. You know that game when you sort the dolls and play the school. Well, my students were my younger relatives.

About eight years I found another love … crochet. And today I enjoy it.

By the time I was nine years old, I found another love on the grandmother’s attic, and that big … grandma’s old sewing machine where I started a wonderful adventure of creation through the first experiments in the sewing. The first two things I made were a pillow and a blanket for my puppet. I prefer to make something by myself and I never never jumped at my parents’ throat to buy something for me every time. In addition, this was much more beautiful, unique, my own work, although imperfect.

Later, interest in knitting, weaving, plants followed.

I’m a very curious person. I like to know how things are created and how to do something by my own.

Um, sometimes I think I was never a woman to live in town.

I often imagined that I had my own house in the suburbs, in the courtyard, a small kindergarten. My students would be educated in the spirit of naturalists and creators, and many of them would create their own handles.

Instead, I had a kindergarten in the center of the city, but my students, as far as it could, still sowed and planted, even though in the gardeners, we made a lot of toys, we weave on the carton, recycled, created a lot of things ourselves. I used to sew a lot for them … quilts, sheets for puppets, doll clothes, bedding and everything that my students needed … much.

These toys, games, plants, everything that my students and myself created in kindergarten had a great impact on their lives.

These days, I’m just a little more sewing. Of course, love for teaching is never in the background. A few days ago I made  a memory game or pair game. Children like it. It’s very easy to make it. All you need is a felt, the remains of various fabrics, a needle and a thread, a sewing machine, and can also be hand-sew. It does not take much time to create, the game will last long, it will not be so easy to crack as paper, it is convenient for playing in the road.

Uskršnja pesma

Danas ćemo učiti jednu lijepu pjesmicu .
Šta mislite o čemu ona govori?
Pomoći ću vam.
“ Deca majci kažu piju,piju,a majka ih pita ko,ko?“
Šta je to,ko je to?
Bravo,tako je….koka i pilići.
“Živi u kući bez vrata i prozora,a kad hoće da izađe,mora da probudi zid“
Pile,tako je.
“Dok je u ruci,belo je,kad padne na zemlju,žuto je“
Da li sada možete pogoditi ko se spominje u pjesmici?Tako je,koka,pilići i jaja.
Hajdemo pogledati sliku (porazgovaramo sa djecom šta je na slici,kada se šaraju jaja,kako se zove taj praznik,zašto se šaraju…) ,a zatim učimo pjesmicu.

“Uskršnja pesma“

Moja baka jaje šara
I sa kokom razgovara:
“Snesi,koko,jaja još,
Nek` ih bude puni koš,
Da se deca takmiče
Dok slušaju stare priče
Kako je Isus vaskrsao,
U nebo se uzdigao,
Pa sad pazi na sve nas,
Svaki dan i svaki čas.“
Koka kao da sve zna
Kratko reče “Ko-ko-da“ .

Nakon pjesmice,djeca se dijele u centre po svom izboru na sledeće igre:
– modelovanje likova i predmeta iz pjesme -slano tijesto-baka,koka,šarena jaja,korpa

– pisanje slova u palenti-Pliću kutiju ili poklopac od kutije obložite papirom ,a na jednom kraju kutije napravite užu pregradu. U širi dio naspete palentu,u uži stavite papirić sa slovima,veliko i malo. Djeca prstom,olovkom ili štapićem pišu slova u palenti prema modelu slova koja ste stavili u pregradu

– radni list “Koliko ima jaja u korpi“ -broje jaja u korpi i pridružuju broj

Kada je sve gotovo,igramo igru “Šarena jaja“
Igra ide ovako:
Brojalicom izaberemo dijete koje će biti “mama koka“ i dijete koje će biti “đavo“,ostala djeca su šarena jaja. “Šarena jaja“ stanu na jedan kraj sobe kod “mame“. Ona svakom “jajetu“ šapne koja je njegova boja. Dolazi “đavo“ ,“kuca“ na vrata.
Mama:Ko je?
Đavo:Đavo s neba
Mama:Šta ti treba?
Đavo:Jedno jaje
Mama:Koje boje?
Ako đavo kaže boju koju neko od djece ima,to dijete đavo juri,a dijete bježi u kućicu. Ako ga uhvati,ono je sledeći đavo. Ako ga ne uhvati,đavo ponovo pogađa boju.

Rabbit race

Easter is approaching. The room is decorated in the spirit of the holiday. We talk to children what we do on Easter Day .
We invite children to the circle to play new games. We start with warming, “head to toe” exercises.

Then the children were divided into two groups. We agree that groups will be called, for example, “rabbits” and “chickens”. We write on the papers an equal number both “rabbits” and “chickens”. If there is an odd number of children, you also get involved in the game. You fold papers. Children take one paper and split into the group they pulled out and start the game.

The first game is a light tempo and it’s called “Find the Egg”
For this game, we need one egg toy. The teacher hides the egg while the kids who are the first to go in search are facing the wall. One child in each group moves in search. The educator and other friends use the words “warm-cold” to indicate if they are close to the eggs. When the egg is discovered, the next two players move.

The next game is called “Jajariada”
We need the real eggs. For the start we need two, for each team for one …. if they do not break 🙂
, two spoons and two cones. From each team, one child moves, carrying an egg in a spoon should go to the other end of the room, go around the cones, go back to his team and hand over the egg and spoon to the next player.

The next game is called “Rabbit Race”
On the sign, one child from each team moves, jumping like rabbits, to the other end of the room and back to their team.

Finally, we go with a game called “Do not Look, Listen”
For the game, we need two scarves. After one child from each team, we put the scarf over the eyes. We sort of obstacles around the room. At the sign, children need to cross the room, from their team to the other side, listening to the instructions of the educator “left, right, forward, back” for each step.
After these games, offer children a choice: games that you have prepared or something else they want.
Activities prepared by centers:

– drawing and decorating eggs

-Setting puzzle with Easter motifs. You can make the puzzle yourself. Cut pictures with Easter motifs from the magazine, stick on cardboard or ice cream sticks, cut when it dries and the game is ready. In addition, you can protect the puzzle, wrap it with a wide tape.

-writing the letters E for egg. In the notebook you draw a big egg in which children write the letters E, decorate around the get. Also, you can cut paper in the form of egg on which children write the letters , and on the other side they decorate
Make a small exhibition every day of children’s works.vAt the end of the week, in their decorative envelopes or bags, which you yourself make, pack their work that they carry  home home for their board.

Solid, liquid, gas

Hello, friends 🙂
Today we learn in which aggregate states water can be found.
Water may be:
– solid
You may not even know that you’ve already seen it in all these states.
We drink liquid water, we bathe in it, we water the flowers, we brush our teeth, our hands …
You saw gases when your mom is cooking lunch, and hot clouds come out of the bowl.
You felt solid when you walk on the ice, when mom puts ice in the juice to cool it.
Water does not have smell, color, taste. It can be cold when it’s ice, do you remember painting colored ice on a stick a few days ago, and hot when it’s steam. So water can change its state when temperature changes.
Now, let’s do a little experiment.
We put a bowl with water on the stove. Here is the water in liquid state. Turn on the stove, the water is warmed up and the steam starts to emerge. Now the water goes into a gassy state. Now put it in the freezer. There is a low temperature and the water will turn into ice, a solid state.
Now let’s look at the cartoon about states and changing states of matter

Water …A drop of life

Good day everyone
As you can see by posts , the theme for this week is “Water”. Today we are talking about what water means to us,how we can use water, everything where there is water (puddle, river, lake, sea, ocean, swimming pool, house-fountain, well ,plants,animals,us…), aquatic living world, pollution of water and how to reduce it, how can we travel on water.
Place images on the panel:
– Everywhere there is water
-the living world in water
– polluted and clean water
– water transport vehicles
Work one at a time. Be an observer, ask questions when needed, and let children describe what they see, what they think about this picture, and what is right about what is not (in the image of water pollution), do they recognize some of the transportation, animals, plants, whether were once on a trip by the river, the lake, how to behave on a trip, where to throw the garbage when you are on a trip, where the trash that somebody throws into the river goes off, what happens to the animals and plants in the water that is polluted , ask them how we drink it, yet there is more, we are swimming at sea, lots of people, we come out wet, and do not diminish where all the rain is gone .. What they do not know, explain them or show them on the example .Do not ask questions that are already being answered in the question. Enable children to observe, think, and conclude by themselves.
Put applications with pictures, song-related themes on the board of the room on a Friday for the next week`s theme, when you send the children home, and let them stand until you finish the theme. Children will continue to observe those aplications, repeat, recall, and get new ideas for the game even when you finish one of these activities.
After a conversation, take a video showing the water cycle

Now let them answer some of the previous questions.
After these static activities, invite children to play a game called “Water the Flowers”
Children are divided into two groups and are on the one end of the room. At the other end of the room are two tables with empty bottles, funnels and glasses with water as much as the children are in the group. Between two rows are hoops. On the third side of the room are two vessels with flowers.
The task is to jump from ring to ring, run to the table with glasses, pour water from the glass in the bottle through the funnel and run along the hoop to the end of the order of the group, then move the next player from that group. When all children in the group pour from a glass in a bottle, they spread out and add water bottles from one child to another, and the last in line from that group water the flowers. If you do not have the real flowers, put artificial in a bucket.
When the children run a little and pop out, show them what you have prepared for them (they can do it right away or during the day):
Center activities:
-paper in which they practice writing letters cut in the form of a drop and let them write the letter W for water, then draw out the terms that begin with that letter or decorate that letter
-worksheet on which are several puddles are drawn, two in each row, and water droplets are placed in them, the task is to count how many drops in one, how much in the other, conclude where there are more and arrange them to have the same number in both puddles
With a whole group of children:
-A little water cycle experiment
We won`t forget a music game,too. Today,it will be “Limbo dance“ :Put a rolling pin on high above the children. While music plays,children dance under the rolling pin without touching it. You,after a while,put a rolling pin a little lower,and lower
Children are curious by nature. Therefore, when preparing activities, let it be as if you are preparing a surprise, a new game.

Rain,rain go away

Hi , buddies
Snow is slowly disappearing, it`s getting warmer weather, but also rains often. Let it fall, we need to water our plants. Don’t be sad,there are interesting games even when the rain falls. We can sing, dance. Hey, I know one nice song about the rain. Let’s sing and dance

We sent away the rain. There are only puddles remained (already prepared paper puddles for the next game put on the floor)
Do you like to jump on puddles? Then, let’s jump in the game “Puddle Jumping”
And here’s what we need for this game and the rules of the game

Are you tired? Let’s now rest with table games. I have new games for you:
1.sort raindrops by the color-cut out the raindrops of paper in various colors, mix them, put on a table and paper puddles in the same colors as raindrops)
2.make letters from salt playdough and toothpicks
3. we paint with colored ice on sticks-during the activity of painting we talk to children about what happens to ice, why it disappears, from what it is composed, what do children think about how we get colored ice, how water can mix, can it with oil , let’s check.
Prepare pipettes, water, food color and oil for this experiment. Pour oil into the bowl. Children pipette take colored water and drop into oil.
Water and oil can not be mixed, because the oil is less dense than water.

Enjoy 🙂

Kišobran za dvoje

Snijeg polako nestaje, stiže nam toplije vrijeme,ali i kiše. Neka pada,treba da nam zalije biljke. Osim toga, ima zanimljivih igara i kada kiša pada. Možemo pjevati,plesati. Ako poželimo šetati,igrati se na kiši zajedno ,čime se možemo zaštititi da ne pokisnemo?Kišobran,kabanica. Hej,znam jednu lijepu pjesmicu o kišobranu za dvoje. Sve je ljepše kada imamo drugare pored sebe.Hajdemo je naučiti, otpjevati i plesati.

Znate li,drugari,šta posle kiše ostane po ulicama,dvorištima? Ostanu samo barice (već pripremljene papirne barice za sledeću igru postavimo po podu)
Volite li skakati po baricama? Onda,hajdemo igrati igru koja se zove “Skakanje po baricama“
Potrebni su nam listovi na kojima su nacrtane barice (koliko ima djece,toliko barica) i na njima pišu zadaci (skači na jednoj nozi,skači objema nogama,uvrći se,mjauči…). Dok traje muzika,djeca skaču sa barice na baricu. Kada se muzika zaustavi,djeca rade ono što piše na barici na kojoj se nalaze u tom momentu. Zatim,muzika opet kreće ,igra i skakanje se nastavljaju.

Jeste li se umorili?Hajdemo sada da se odmorimo uz igre za stolom. Imam nove igre za vas:
1.razvrstavamo kapljice vode prema boji -izrežite kapljice od papira u raznim bojama,pomešajte ih,stavite na sto kapljice i barice od papira u istim bojama kao kapljice)
2.slikamo obojenim ledom na štapovima-tokom slikanja razgovaramo sa djecom šta se to događa sa ledom,zašto nestaje,od čega je sastavljen,šta misle djeca kako smo dobili led u boji,sa čim se voda može miješati ,može li se miješati i sa uljem. Hajdemo proveriti .
Za ovaj eksperiment pripremite pipete ,vodu,prehrambenu boju i ulje. U politiku,providnu posudu sipajte ulje. Djeca pipetom uzimaju obojenu vodu i kapaju u ulje.
Voda i ulje se ne mogu miješati,jer je ulje manje gustine nego voda,ali zato možemo posmatrati ples kapljica vode u ulju 🙂

Uživajte 🙂




Up,Up Umbrella

Letter u(1)umbrellas(1)

Good morning everyone 🙂
Today we are learning a song
“Up, up umbrella”
What is the umbrella for ?
What colors can an umbrella be?
Describe the appearance of the umbrella

After the song, there are activities divided in centers:
1. writing Letter  U Umbrella,worksheet,box with cornstarch in it and written letters in front of the box
2. drawing on the theme “Colorful umbrellas”, wax crayons
3. “How much raindrops are on my umbrella”, on the basis of the given number above the umbrella, so many raindrops should be stuck under the umbrella

All activities should be prepared for all children. Thus, after completing a task in one center they will be able to do tasks in other centers when they want to. So children should be able to rotate in centers.

After all the tasks, we dance a little with the children’s song with the addition of choreography


Over the stream


StonesStream and fishes

Letter S

Good morning, Friends 🙂

Good morning, moms, dads, grandmas, grandpas, teachers 🙂

Did you sleep well?

Let`s shake our body.The theme for this week is Water.
Let’s get some warm up first. We shall make whole body exercises “from head to toe”.
Perfect! 🙂
Now that we warm up, we are going to play a new game called
“Over the stream”
Place the obstacles around the room: stones, timber, streams, trees. You can print rocks and streams from this post and paste them on the floor or draw if you run the activity out. Also,you can make g river and fishes of felt,so you can use it for many games. Make the timber out of the board that you place on the other two smaller to not be high. Trees can be your chairs.
Say to children they had come for a walk around the forest. There is a lot of trees, a stream. It just starts spring, it’s still cold and you have to take care of it not to get wet. That’s why we will skip and cross the stream and avoid various obstacles. They also need to look at the various forest animals they might encounter, some of them dangerous and should be sheltered.
Children go for a walk through the forest, cross the tree, cross the boulder, jump the stream, and on the teacher’s pronunciation of some of the forest animals, the children either continue walking or hide, depending on whether the animal is dangerous or not. For example, when you say “bear” , children climb a chair quickly or when you say “rabbit” , they continue walking.
After this game, remove the chairs and board and split into two groups and get yourself a ball across the “stream”. To whom the ball falls into the “stream” should do the task that the teacher say, for example, to run 3 circles, or to jump as a rabbit, or to sing one stroke of the favorite song.
After these mobile games, offer the following activities to your children immediately or during the day as they wish:
-writing the letter S stream
A worksheet with a letter should be cut in the form of a stream, and on the other side it is blank so they can draw the terms on that letter
– hidden letters
Children or you, write the letters with wax crayons on white paper,over which you can paint with watercolors,they will see letters after that
-gathering the water into containers of various sizes, studying where there are more or less water, or the same no matter of size of containers
-experiment “Floats-sinks”
Perform this experiment with the whole group. Children use a variety of items, toys examine what floats, and what sinks.
Of course, there is dance with music, to create a pleasant atmosphere. For today, let it be

As you can see, there are more planned activities for children during the day. Make them as close as possible to the real ones to make them attractive to learning.
