Today we used our sense of touch to learn about the letter W
We started by reading Worm's Wagon
Which is a sweet little book about Ww words,
Then we wiggled like a worm (so I could buy time and get them all into their paint smocks)
Then we did worm painting!
I'm sure you've seen this on-line,
but it is SUPER fun!
All I did was cook some spaghetti noodles,
and put tempera paint on it,
and mixed it around really well.
I took some construction paper and wrote the letter Ww,
but you could always make a copy onto card stock.
I really wanted them to connect the letter Ww to what they were doing.
The kids LOVED it!
They could have played with this all day!
They loved picking it up, and rubbing it around.
It was a great sensory activity!
Then, they could go to town with all of the noodles.
This would also be great to learn how to mix colors.
Only have red, yellow and blue noodles,
and papers to make green, orange, and purple.
A happy mess!!
And I sure am glad I covered the table first!!
(The only thing I was strict about was no noodles could fall on the floor.)
Then we went upstairs for our wormy snack...
I found this cute little worm here.
I printed him out and had the kids put gummy worms to make the letter W.
Then we had a worm in water for our snack.
I made blueberry jello with a gummy worm inside.
The kids had a fun time digging the worms out,
it took them longer than I thought it would...
