This week we learned about all kinds of different transportation that we use every day! Cars, buses, planes and more! We did many activities such as creating our very own license plate, creating a train out of cardboard boxes (above picture) and working on many of our gross motor skills out in the hallway! Join us and take a look at this exciting week we had!
During our group activities this week we went over the alphabet with our friends! Each group member received 5 or so alphabet cards at random, and had to work with their group to put the entire alphabet together in the correct order! We have finished our alphabet daily sign in's and so this was a great review of our letters. At warm ups we are now practicing to write our names (in pencil!). This will help prepare us for Kindergarten!
This week's table activities involved lots of arts and crafts! The art activities included creating an image of a plane, decorating our very own car, and more! The table activities also included some cognitive development areas such as counting using block pieces, race car puzzles and and spelling out words that relate to transportation!
Lots of fun during free play playing house, dress up, kitchen, painting at the easel and checking out the sensory table!
This weeks hallway activities were a big hit as you can see! Since we were finishing some of our assessments, we included many gross motor activities such as hopscotch, running, skipping, and also riding the tricycles! Another one of our main hallway activities was the train we created out of cardboard boxes, we all worked together to design each of the boxes with markers, colorful tape, wheels and more!
Thank you everyone for a successful week! We learned lots about how we get around places and how cool traveling can be! We hope to keep learning more about transportation as we see it everyday in our lives! Have a wonderful week!
Make a few paper airplanes with your kids. Get three wire hangers and bend them open wide. Hang them on each other and then hang the top one on a door ledge. Assign points to each one and let the kids compete to earn the most points!
