We started off the week with One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish. On Monday we tore up red and blue tissue paper and make one red fish and one blue fish (to make two fish). We graphed colored goldfish and counted how many of each color we had at snack time and organized them into fish bowls by color and number.
On Tuesday we read The Cat in the Hat. I made a hat out of an oatmeal container and a paper plate and the children took turns throwing bean bags into the hat. We talked about fun ways to clean up our messes.
On Wednesday we read Wacky Wednesday. So we colored underneath the table instead of on top of it. We also made a collage out of anything the children wanted, I put out glitter glue, elmer's glue, glitter, pom pom balls, feathers, crayons, chalk, stickers, and letters. The children also got to wear whatever wacky clothes they wanted. I also moved things around the room and hung up shoes around the room for the kids to discover.
On Thursday we read Green Eggs and Ham. I made "green eggs" for snack- yogurt with green food coloring and a nilla wafer. We practiced our number recognition/counting with green plastic Easter eggs with numbers on them and we placed the correct amount of pom poms in each egg.
On Friday, we read ABC. Our preschoolers also practiced matching, prewriting skills, using scissors (under very careful supervision) and number recognition with a few fun worksheets. We've been working on the letters A-I so we also played a rainbow alphabet game to recognize those letters and their sounds.
