This week is all about Character Rhymes in Experience Early Learning’s February unit of “Nursery Rhymes”. We enjoy blogging for Experience Early Learning, and in return, receive some of our supplies free!
Week 2, Lesson 8 is all about the Itsy, Bitsy Spider. During circle time we completed the Caught in the Web activity. We put tape on the wall to create a web and placed the picture cards on the web. The teacher handed the child a card to read and they had to match the word to the picture on the web. They took turns until all of the cards had a match.
The children enjoyed their “spider” fingers during the Spider’s Web of Cards activity. The teacher created a web on the table and placed the matching cards under the yarn pieces. The children had a piece of tape around their finger (sticky side out) and they used it to flip over the cards while they tried to find a match.
The Creative Corner activity for Experience Early Learning’s Itsy Bitsy Spider lesson was to create a web. This activity touched on Earth Science and Visual Arts. The children used a paper plate, sequins, yarn, glue and scissors to create their own spider web. They loved using the sequins!
So far this week, we have done activities with “Humpty Dumpty”,
“There Was a Crooked Man” and ” The Itsy, Bitsy Spider”. We will be doing “Hey Diddle Diddle” and “Old King Cole” to finish out week two of Experience Early Learning’s Nursery Rhyme’s unit. Experience Early Learning provides a lesson for every day of the week. Each month comes with 20 lessons. This play-based curriculum, developed to meet National Standards for Early Childhood Education, provides a lot of fun every day of the week! Check out what’s coming up in March!
