We read "Even more parts" by Tedd Arnold ( A very cute series of books)
We also read "Five little monkeys jumping on the bed"
We sponge painted with assorted "body parts" heads, tops, pants, shoes, boots, bow ties, purses, etc. to create people. The children then used small brushes to add face details if they wanted. They are build a kid sponge painters for 12.95 from Lakeshore learning store.
|Assorted parts to make bodies.|
|Late, she drew on arms too as the sponges did not have arms.|
|The children in the pre- k class noticed when they pushed down on the funnel, the bubbles came out the top, they were trying to push harder, thinking they would come out more.|
|I suggested they move it to a spot that had more bubbles and when they pushed down, the soap bubbles came out the top and rolled down the side. They tried it in others spots to see where it worked best.|
|These are actually scrubbing sponges for dishes, but they are apple shape and perfect for sponge painting apples.|
