Where is the flower? Point to the leaves, grass, sky, birds…
Where is the bird? What does a bird do? What color is the bird? Lets see if we can find a bird outside…
Handprint and Footprint Art
Here is a Melissa & Doug puzzle that would be perfect for this unit.
If you’re new to sensory bins and sensory play, read this fabulous article to see why it’s so important.
This week I filled the bin with colored rice, a scoop, flower and butterfly cookie cutters, flowers and buttons.
Books- 2 per day, (both were read at least twice.) I always read the book through first and read it again for further comprehension. On the second read, I ask questions and talk about what is on some of the pages. I ask her to point lots of different things.
Song- 2 per day.
Craft/ Activity: Coloring, painting, creating.
Sensory Bin Play: This is what lasts the longest with our lessons. We work on taking things out, putting them in, picking things up and so forth. This is a great time to work on directions with your child.I kept the bin, puzzles and games out of her play areas. I only bring them out when it was time for our Mommy School time. I wanted them to be special, something she looked forward to and didn’t have at her fingertips all day.
The celery art is so neat! I never would have thought to make it. I love the sensory bin idea too. I really need to make one soon.
We're trying to work on our colors right now…but it's tough outside…everything is brown and white because of the sand and snow!
loved how easy that colored rice was to make! I've been thinking about trying to make some dedicated "school" time or something similar and I'm so glad I found this series. I was thinking the same as you to keep school items in a special bin that only come out for those times! Looking forward to future lesson ideas!
