This week was our last one with the sea animals theme, and the topics were: Octopus, jellyfish, crab, lobster, star fish, seahorse, mermaid and sea animals overall review.
Exploration time was filled with different and fun activities such as: Peg boards, plush sea animals, inflatable fish box, duplos, peek a blocks, and go fish with magnets.
In creativity time with Miss Cristy children loved their “Under the sea” poster. The white cardboard painted blue with spaghetti the previous week was the one used for this poster. On it they got to the task of making sea animals. They made an “octopus” (pasting googly eyes and sequins on tentacles), a “Shark” (cutting and pasting some shark teeth), a “Starfish” (making and pasting orange & yellow balls of mache paper) and a bank of fish. Turtles loved making their “Crab headband”, they all looked so cute! So much fun! Children love this kind of activities!
We had a little bit of role play involved this week, with the theme of “Crab” we took them to the gym and pretended to “walk like a crab” and to get some inspiration for it we watched a video called “Crab dance video” you can watch it with your kids on Youtube.
Have a nice weekend!
Miss Judy and Miss Karen.
