• E-Learning Activities for Wednesday, April 8th 

    Theme:  Bugs  *All activities for today will be found on this page only*

     

    Gross Motor: Bug Movement time with dice!  

    Below you will find each number assigned to a specific bug.  Have your child roll the dice and count the dots to see what they rolled.  Match that number to a paper copy (or this electronic copy) of the numbers that show which bug they will imitate.  

    1. Ant: You march around the room. You could sing the song the “Ant Go Marching” as well!

    2. Bee: You flap your arms as fast as you can and make a buzzing sound.

    3. Butterfly: You gently make your arms be the wings of the butterfly and flutter around the room.

    4. Grasshopper: You jump around the room. You can do standing jumps or jumps from the ground.

    5. Worm: You lay on the ground and wiggle and squirm your way around.

    6. Spider: You get up on your toes and tip toe around the room like you are on a spider’s web.

    Sensory/Social Emotional: 

     

    Go on a bug walk with your child outside.  Have him or her feel the different areas where bugs/insects might be located:  the water in a puddle, in the dirt, in the grass, on a rock, etc.  Use words like soft, hard, bumpy, smooth, prickly, wet, dry, etc... when talking with your child about all the different areas.
