I haven’t posted for a while, I guess I got caught in the “Christmas rush”. I totally forgot to take pictures of what we did, ornaments, cards, candy cane sleigh, ginger bread village etc. I only took a few of our Christmas tree.
This week was about learning what is a year or what is in a year. Something hard for children to understand. I am pretty sure the pre-schoolers now know the seasons and I can say they have been introduce to the 12 months.
Little drawings of each holiday and everyone’s birthday under the months
Above it was the season’s name in English, Spanish and French cover with paint. I decided to associate a color with each season to help them learn. I had a video about the seasons ( baby Einstein) showing Monet’s paintings and photos of landscapes with the seasonal change in time-laps.
Down here it looks like a mess but in fact it’s the free-art table where kids get to choose what they want to craft and with what they want to work. It was a lot of fun.
Here are some art work…
When I thought of taking photos B. was already gone with her creation…
Then today I made 1 sensory bin for each season. The children rotated and had a turns with every bin.
Songs are always a great learning tool and we used this one for the seasons and made our own for the 12 months.
