Greetings from the Older Toddler room!
This week we are focusing on our theme: "Under the Sea" On Monday, the children used their fine motor skills to put a piece of string through the Penguin lacing board's holes at the manipulative table. At the math/science table, the children used their cognitive skills to count out the ocean animals counters and put them in containers. For art, the children made a paper plate fish using a paintbrush with glue, feathers, glitter and wiggly eyes. On Tuesday, the children used their cognitive skills to match the number whales with the number submarines. At the manipulative table, the children used their fine motor skills with tongs to pick up the sea animals from the table. At the art table, th children made a "shark face" using glue, cutout teeth and mouth. On Wednesday, the children used their fine motor skills to put the popicle sticks inside of the octopus bottles at the manipulative table. At the math table/science table, the children explored and use their cognitive skills to look at and count the various seashells on the table. At the art table, the children made octopus using Cheerios for the suction cups, and wiggle eyes for the eyes. On Thursday, the children explored the science table where there were mini magnetic horseshoes with magnetic metal rings. The children explored all the ways they could use the magnets. At the manipulative table, the children used their fine motor skills to peel off stickers off their own sticker sheets and stick them on construction paper. For art, the children used starfish to dip into paint and stamp them on construction paper. In addition, we did our health and wellness by making a snack called: ocean snack. The children watched the teacher make ocean frosting then each child was able to use a plastic knife to spread their own frosting on graham cracker with sprinkles. On Friday, the children will explore a science experiment by making their own sea scene using a container, water, food coloring, seashells and glitter. Have a great weekend!
