We have loved learning about leaves!
Today we extended our learning.
We finger painted card stock leaves in a baggie.
It was fun and no mess!
The children tried to mix the yellow and red together,
And it turned out really pretty!
We read The Leaf Man By Lois Ehlert.
It is one of my favorite books for fall!
Then I gave the children some dried leaves,
And they made their own leaf people.
We read My "l" book by Moncure
Where a little boy finds things to put into his L sound box.
We made our own sound box and put things in that start with the letter L.
Next we learned about ladybugs
(to go with our letter L week)
And we made a ladybug snack.
Out of an apple, banana, Nutella in a icing bag, and chocolate chips.
With a toothpick to hold it together,
And pipe cleaners for cuteness.
The we reviewed the numbers 0-5 by using our ladybug counters,
Which I made by drawing on foam circles.
Then we worked on one on one correspondence
by putting spots on our ladybugs.
These were from my Kindergarten years,
Which I actually used for teaching addition.
I just bought some black pom-poms for the kids to count with.
We also made a ladybug counting sheet
By using the worksheet found here, and some dot markers.
They had to count out loud while using the dot marker
(FYI. I found this at All a Dollar but their called Bingo Markers.)
We finished up by read reading and acting out
Strega Nona by Tommie dePaola
Which has nothing to do with the letter of the week,
But went with our unit of places in the world and holidays.
(Strega was a witch.)
