“Miss Jamie, I already made my name. Can I make my sister’s name next?” YES! The answer will always be YES! You can make any word your sweet heart desires with the light table letters.
Baa, Baa Black Sheep Have you any wool? Yes sir, yes sir TEN bags full! 🐑🐑🐑🐑🐑 Nursery rhyme counting practice at the math center.
Preschool... where dressing like a cow all day is totally normal. 🐄😅 #jumpoverthemoon #nurseryrhymeunit
4-year-old, working at the writing center: “Look! I wrote my mom a letter and you didn’t even have to tell me how to spell her name!” 😍😍😍
Watch their fingers work to open all of those band-aid wrappers. It takes some serious coordination, hand strength, and grasp to get them onto poor Humpty. Preschoolers 💕love💕 this activity and it is great fine motor practice. (Printable pictures and poem are in our Humpty Dumpty circle time unit.)
These rainbow chick peas (thank you @andnextcomesl for this amazing idea a few years ago!) are some of our favorite sensory bin fillers. When we’re trying to meet our students’ sensory needs, we have to remember that it’s more than just a tactile activity. As you can tell from the short video clips, their sense of hearing got quite an experience too. #finemotor #sensoryplay #sensorytable #drychickpeas
“Hey Diddle Diddle” art Sooooo easy! After learning the nursery rhyme, we listened to fiddle music on iTunes. The students danced, moved, and painted a picture of what they heard. #musicpainting #processart #nurseryrhymes
“1-2 Buckle My Shoe” Stick collages. We just put out a variety of craft sticks, glue, markers, and paper. I love how they all added their own touches. Super simple set-up that really allowed them to show their creativity!
“Baa Baa ____ Sheep” Painting with cotton balls and practicing color word recognition (and writing, with our 5-year-olds). Not as “processy” as we usually do, but a good, quick art project. Some of the students wanted to paint one of each color, so we stapled them together and made a book.
