One of my friends told their "mum" (grandma) last night today is my birthday. It is not my birthday, she showed up today with a cake and card! I presume yesterday's topic planted the seed. Thank you Mum, Calvin and Beatrice for baking a cake! We decided today would be a good day to celebrate all the Summer birthday's!!
Amphibians, birds, fish, and most reptiles are types of animals that lay eggs. We began our day reading the book Egg in the Hole by Richard Scarry. When buying eggs at the store or farm, you may find only white or brownish-colored eggs. Shell color is based on the breed of the chicken. We all looked at the Inspiration photo and discussed all the different colors and designs. During this Invitation to Create, children experimented with a white crayon and watercolor. During the process of decorating their eggs, children discovered what happens when colored water and wax mix. This cause-and-effect art project is exciting for children to engage in an incorporates science skills.
For our names we made a nest with eggs. The children tore brown paper used blue ovals for the eggs.
We drew lines in our fine motor journals and the older kids traced letters and numbers.
I made forest like sensory bins using split peas and beans, scoops, animals, paper towel rolls, twigs, stumps, letter tiles for literacy and let their imaginations run! They all wanted an egg as well!
We are easing into 2023 working in our fine motor journals! We sorted letters O and P. and traced the letter P. They cut paper and glued in their journals and drew lines. A few kiddos asked if they could play with the letters and make words (this makes me so happy)!
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
