Backyard Fun

The dramatic play area has been changed into your backyard. The children will act out the life cycle of a butterfly, pollinate flowers like bees, and crawl through tunnels like insects do underground.

Syllable counting

The children have been counting the number of syllables in their names. We count them by tapping our legs, clapping our hands, and counting on our fingers how many times our mouth opens and closes when we say our names. Here is how our class looks in a graph of how many syllables are in our names.

Tracks, Camouflage, and Hibernation

I put potato flakes in the sensory table with animals with white and brown fur to explain the concept of camouflage. I also hung pictures of animals whose fur changes according to the season. 

We read the book Bear Snores On  by Karma Wilson. I added props to the house area that match what is in the book. The children can reenact the story using the book and props. 

This is a cast of a bear and moose track taken in the woods in Waterbury. The children can look at the animal and the tracks. There are also card for the children to play a track matching or memory game.
