Tadpole

We kept our little hands busy today with lots of fun tadpole activities! We started off at circle time learning about tadpoles and singing and jumping to the “Five Little Tadpoles” rhyme found in this weeks Mother Goose Time teacher guide, “Life Around the Pond”. The kids waited patiently for their names to be called in the rhyme and then hopped up once they heard them. This activity helped them learn about the stages of metamorphosis and patience in a fun and easy way! To compliment this activity, we made tadpole ribbon dancers and the kid’s pretended to be swimming in a pond!

It is so nice having all of the supplies provided by Experience Early Learning. It leaves time for more teaching and learning! And with that, the teachers at Wonders can come up with other activities to keep them occupied and challenge them academically.

In the photos below, Pre-K practiced their cutting skills, matching and writing. We absolutely love the themes provided by Experience Early Learning!

We also had a chance to practice patterns and acting out a book with play pieces provided by EEL!

 

 

 

 

Every day is a new adventure and learning experience with EEL and we can’t wait to see what tomorrow brings!

We are almost finished with Experience Early Learning’s February unit, “Nursery Rhymes”. For Week 4, Lesson 19 we reviewed the rhyme “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” (I say review because this is a favorite among most of our students).b1b5f26558684d3b5d2208fd6e877179 (1)

 

One of our students actually had the idea of an activity to go with today’s lesson. Her idea was that the class could design stars and the teacher could put their picture on them. The class had fun singing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, decorating their stars and taking their picture.

We love that it is easy to incorporate additional activities within the lesson’s that Experience Early Learning provides. They also had fun completing Starry Numbers, the math activity using the numbered stars mat and star shapes. They took turns sharing their age and then as a group we clapped that many times – this was a fun way to practice counting.

Preschool 2 enjoyed the “Wishing on a Star” activity where they got to create their own star wands. They practiced their scissor skills and talked about what they would wish for if they saw a shooting sta2da9a8314ff054650de9e989034a66ec

Thank you, Experience Early Learning for the great Nursery Rhymes unit – this was enjoyed in all five of our classrooms!

Did someone say “Cake”?

Week three of Experience Early Learning’s “Nursery Rhymes” unit is all about Food Rhymes. The topic for Lesson 11 was “Pat-a-Cake”. Who doesn’t love cake? 30f0081126ce13281689a3c1f34fb527

The children frosted paper cupcakes with glue and shaving cream and then added confetti as sprinkles! They looked almost good enough to eat. This was a fun activity, the children loved getting to explore painting with glue and shaving cream. It is a fun texture!

Then they used our foam Shape of the Month (heart) pieces to work together, decorating the most beautiful cake!

This week they also worked on the letter Q. Experience Early Learning sends letter mats and they used curved and straight pieces to create the letters. These mats are great for practicing pre-writing skills!

For our Preschool 1 class, keeping their hands busy helps a lot. They enjoy cutting and building and it helps class time go smoothly for this busy little crew. We love that Experience Early Learning knows the value of keeping little hands busy with fun and engaging activities!
