For the little preschool we did E is for Eggs and Elephant:
The kids went on an egg hunt, and each egg had candies in it- they had to count them out and find the number card from the table.
Then we talked about the letter E, did an egg race, and an egg toss into the buckets from across the carpet.
We made little elephant noisemaker from Family Fun. Jacob loved it. Then we painted an elephant with grey paint and watched Elephant movies on Planet Earth.
Yesterday we had letter F with the big preschool. We fished little fish with activities to do, like be an octopus, sing the shark song, make a fish face.
I made funnel cakes during free play time…made to look like the letter F. They were delicious, and a lot easier than I thought!
Other F activities:
Sang “The Goldfish” by Laurie Berkner
Read “The Pout Pout Fish”
Pasted black triangles, circles and rectangles on pumpkins to make feelings pumpkins.
Took pics of our faces doing different feelings, then I made collages in Picasa real quick during lunch time.
Today for little Preschool we did Frogs- (sorry no pictures)
We played a graphing game and did fish sorting from the Pond life preschool pack on Tot School.
We played leapfrog, pretended to be the different parts of a frog (egg, tadpole, frog), and pretended to jump in and out of the pond, to catch flies, etc.
We painted frogs, added circles to them, cut and pasted the life cycle of a frog.
We watched frogs on National Geographic kids. (Natalie’s favorite site)
We read “In a Small Small Pond” and “Froggy goes out to Eat”
We sang “Five Little Speckled frogs” and had frog toys to throw off the log.
I’ve taught a lot of Preschool in the past 2 months, but I’ve got a break for a few weeks, Natalie’s attending the preschool at the local high school by our house, and I don’t have to teach “Big Preschool” until November. I love my preschool kids, but it will be nice to not have that in the back of my mind for a few weeks!
