Wow what a week it was Investigating baby animals puppies, kittens, and seahorses to name a few. It was so nice to get back to our Experience Early Learning curriculum ( formally mother goose time) after our Christmas break. Some Discovery Activities we experienced this week with our preschool curriculum were •Baby Name •Mama Pig and Piglets Math •Tangram Eggs •S Is For Seahorse •Birthday Banner •Pet Care Patterns
Starting our week with some imaginary cat play was so much fun. The kids enjoyed decorating their cat mask and then they role-played as kittens pouncing on toys. We even extended our activity and I had the children pounce on the numbers that I called aloud.
Mama Pig & Piglets
We talked about how some animals have babies in their belly. we played a little math game. I set out the mama pig poster and some pre rolled balls of playdough. Next, I asked the Children to roll the dice and then they added that many pieces of playdough onto the belly of the mama pig.
Tracing Rubber Bands
This month we are focusing on the Oval shape. One activity we did this week was rubber band tracing. We used giant rubber band and traced around the inside on black paper and used a white crayon.
The Letter Ss
Our Preschool Curriculum focuses on three letters each month. This week we focused on The letter Ss.
We love using our loose letter parts and Mat that Experience Early Learning supply us with each month.
Each letter also comes with a fun I spy game that the kids really enjoy. There is always a fun spy glass that the kids love. This week we painted the letter S and pictures that begin with the letter S….. each ISpy game is different so make sure to follow along so you can get more fun ideas.
I set out our Inspiration photo, watercolor paint, white crayons, and a white paper egg shaped paper. I had the children draw designs on their egg￼ with the white crayon and then use the watercolor paint to see the magic happen. It was very interesting observing the children variety of colors and their reaction to the wax resistant technique to decorate their egg.
Thanks for stopping by…. come back next week for more from Mrs. Kats kids
