Theme Learning: Garden
Howdy Folks - Hope your week is treating you well - We sure are having fun over here! Last week we worked on some nature based activities and again I just want to clear up that we don't spend 9 hours a day on this stuff nor do we focus on what nature is in a textbook way - we just sort of play with the theme as we remember it!
Our books for the week:
We also read the Nutbrown Hare books Guess How Much I Love You and Colors Colors Everywhere.
Played color match up on our felt board! I made Tulips and Bees then practiced color matching.
We did it several ways - once with the flowers up and matching the bees with no verbal instruction.
Having Big C do the flower and Little C the bees.
Tell them which color to locate and having them place both on there.
The girls also had free time to just play with them and it was sooo cute to hear Little C saying "ellow bee ellow flower, blue bee blue flower as she put each piece up)!
We also did this:
Leaf Rubbings. Place the leaf under the paper and have the kids color on top!
