E-Learning Activities for Monday, April 13th
Theme: Bugs *All activities for today will be found on this page only*
Bugs on the windshield game:
WHAT TO DO:
1. Use a couch cushion, pillow, or deflated beach ball 2. Have your child lay on his back and place his legs straight into the air. Have him move his legs side to side like windshield wipers (keeping his legs straight). An amazing core workout!
Fine Motor/Sensory: Make your own caterpillar. Draw some circles and help your child cut them out. (Be sure to not leave your child alone with scissors. Please monitor him or her using scissors at all times for safety.) Your child may need you to do hand over hand to help him or her cut on the lines. Once circles are cut out (either by you, your child, or both of you), construct them to make a caterpillar. Have your child decorate his or her caterpillar with crayons, colored pencils, markers, sticks, etc..
If your child is able to write his or her name, have them practice on their caterpillar. (all afternoon students should be able to do this on their own.)
Language: Listen to the story, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, read aloud. When the story is over, go to your kitchen and get some fruits/food from the story to have your child count. Practice using a 1-1 correspondence when counting. You may have to help hold your child's finger as he/she points to touch each item only one time.
Social Emotional: Using building blocks, try to make lots of caterpillars either by stacking the blocks and laying them on their sides or laying the blocks side by side. Talk with your child about the colors of the caterpillars (did you make any patterns alternating colors), about the size of the caterpillars (maybe one is the same size as another or one might be longer/shorter), and how many blocks you used to make each caterpillar (another opportunity to practice counting and 1-1 correspondence).
Student Checklist: (only one per week - if you don't have a printer, you could write it down to return in your child's folder)
