Welcome back friends!! Come explore the seascape with us. Discover the coral reef colors, explore plants and animals on the ocean floor. Earth’s five oceans are enormous!! They cover about 70% of Earth’s surface and they are home to thousands of plants and animals. This month we will be talking about seascape, large sea creatures, small sea creatures, and ocean exploration. Experience Early Learning (formally Mother Goose) time has planned out such a fun month for us!!! Its going to but fun so check back with us each week!!!
How do you think the ocean water taste? Give each child a cup of salt water. Ask How does it smell?
Next encourage them to taste it.
Salt water art
• Background paper
• Fill cups with small amounts of water and mix and paint. As many colors as desired.
• Have children use the droppers and drop paint onto their picture.
• Next prompt the children to sprinkle the salt onto their picture.
• Ask the children what happens to the salt when it touches the watercolors?
Ocean plants sometimes attach themselves to the ocean floor while other plants just float. I set out the inspiration photo from experience early learning formally Mother Goose time.
The children were given a background paper, different color blue paper strips, and green festoon. Next i used these prompts to help inspire the children’s Ocean zone creations.
• what do you see in the photo?
• How will you arrange your paper strips to create ocean zones?
• What plants or animals could you draw in each zone?
• What do you think lives at the bottom of the ocean?
O is for Octopus
Each month we focus on three letters with our preschool curriculum. This week we are learning about the letter O. Our preschool curriculum supplies us with a hands on letter sheet with each letter that we are focusing on. I love how experience early learning always find creative ways to use the hands on letter sheet. This week With the letter O we cut out out 8 pieces of yarn and attach them to the octopus’s tentacles.
As an Experience Early Learning Blog Ambassador, I receive the Experience Early Learning Preschool curriculum in exchange for my honest and authentic stories resulting from our personal experiences. As always, my opinions on awesome stuff for little kids are 100% my own. Keep in mind that all preschoolers do things in their own time and on their own terms. What one is ready for, another might not be. Please use your best mama judgement when planning activities for your little kids. #preschool #homeschool #mgtblogger
