What are We Learning
We will start the first week off with lots of name activities, including recognition. We will meet Allie the Alligator, Bubba the Bear, and Catina the Cat with Zoophonics. The letter, sound, and animal movement will be introduced as well. We will also talk about other words that start with these letters.
The children will trace shapes with gems, put numbers in order on alligator patterns, and balance bears. We will also count cubes to make construction towers.
For fine motor, the children will be lacing alphabet beads, transferring water with pipettes, and cutting lines to butterflies. For gross motor, we will be going on a Color Hunt, tossing bean bags to apples, and doing a Cat Freeze Dance.
The children will start the month by mixing colors on foil. We will also explore an Alligator Swamp, find bugs in “grass,” and build castles on the light table.
We will be playing “Clap A Friend’s Name with Me” and “Alligator Claps.” We will also be balancing bears while we have a relay.
