We read "In a people house" and "Come over to my house" by Theo Lesieg
We cut out pictures from magazines to glue onto house shapes.
We did the Mack chicken dance, and we did a rhyming activity, with matching cards- find your partner
We asked the children "Does your name have the letter I in it?
We had feed corn in the sensory table and the children used their fingers to pick the corn off the cob. (Great fine motor activity) Then they can play with the corn.
We did a counting board game in small groups too.
Maple Room- Thursday class
We read "Perfect Square" by Michael Hall
We each got our own square and we turned it into something new. We cut it, drew on it and glued it to paper. We put all of the pieces there, so it was still made from our square. Like our book.
|Cute book about a square and how it can change into other things|
|Each child got a red square and did something with it to change it.|
|The children also added their own drawings to the picture. All parts of the sqaure were glued onto the paper too.|
Willow Room- T/Th class (Terrific 2's and 3's)
We read "Fall leaves fall" by Zoe Hall
We asked the children "Do you like to play in the leaves?
We are going to make leaves out of our project today. We used paper towels and markers. The children drew on the paper towels with red and yellow markers. Then they sprayed the paper towel with water to get it wet, the colors run and "bleed" together.
|Markers in red and yellow drawn on paper towel, then sprayed with water. We will turn them into beautiful fall leaves.|
At the easel we had magnetic corn on the cob, the children could put them in number order or find the two matching numbered corn cobs.
|The children can either put numbers in order or they can find the matching number.|
We did "leaves on the move", "I like my hat" and "Sticky bubble gum" for music today.
We did a 4 little leaves rhyme. We worked on fine motor skills by adding feathers to a cup made into a turkey. Take a paper cup, turn it upside down and poke holes in the bottom. Then wrap brown paper around it and draw a turkey face on the paper. The children take colored feathers and put them into the holes.
