The preschoolers learned all about the three bears that live in Alaska. We explored our senses while finger painting then strengthened our fine motor muscles as we put our bears together.
We worked fine motor and reviewed our last 4 letters from April with this fun game. The children picked a letter from a bowl and then had to try to find its match on a folded card. This game is a great cognitive game as the children have to try to remember where the letter matches are!
To further our unit on things that fly, we have been exploring outer space this week! The boys and girls strengthened their fine motor skills as well as hand- eye coordination by pulling and sticking stars on paper. Each child made their very own constellation. Some children wanted lots of stars where others chose just a few! We also finger-painted crescent moons. The children love to move their fingers through the smooth, cold paint.
During group time this week, the Toddlers practiced sorting things that go! Each child took a turn placing a vehicle on the big magnetic board. The boys and girls love when it’s their turn to participate in group!
We got out our quilting materials today in honor of the letter Q! We chose pieces of scrap paper to glue over our first initials to make a beautiful handmade quilt. It was fun to find pieces of paper that we thought would look great together.
