So to be real honest, Monday morning didn't quite go as I had hoped. JP didn't really want to do the activities I had planned. So I decided to lay low and not push it. I then laid out our sensory bin and left it while I cut another activity. Before I knew it they were enthralled with it!
|This time around I laid out our favorite blanket and instructed them to keep all sensory bin items on the blanket. :) This worked much better to try to keep the items contained.|
|JP made a cave for the polar bears.|
Before I knew it they were both beading the pipe cleaners all on their own.
Next we began working on the Snowman, Snowman, What do you See printable from Playing with Words 365, which is awesome! The boys LOVED it! First I read the book to the boys and then they glued the pictures on each page. The winter vocabulary in this activity is awesome. I also love all the questions that are provided in the "lesson guide".
|CA LOVED putting his pictures in his book. Then he "read" the book to me numerous times. So precious!|
|He was so excited and proud of himself when he finished!|
Then we pulled out all of our "winter gear" and pretended to dress up. This kept them occupied and engaged for a long amount of time! They loved this and wanted to do it first thing Tuesday morning too!
|Nice pink scarf, son!|
Tuesday morning was a ton of fun too! I decided to try something new by allowing CA to work on a few activities/trays on his own while JP worked at the table. I've seen a lot of tot school activities on trays for younger learners and thought I would give this a try. So far CA did well with it.
|CA is working on his colors so I allowed him to sort the new magnetic wooden letters by color.|
|Then he laced his new Melissa and Doug Lace and Trace animal cards.|
We then began working on the Snowman Tot Pack from Royalbaloo.
|Tracing practice for CA|
I also made snowman shaped sandwiches one day for lunch.
So here are a few more trays with activities on them that we used this week. I found this awesome Snowman Colors printable at The "Kids Place ".
We also painted snow pictures with cotton balls to wrap up the learning!
Feel free to leave me comments about what you've been up to with your littles!
I LOVE reading each comment and really try to respond to each one!
