Singing Nursery Rhymes - Older Toddler

Posted by Lakewood Childcare Center on October 15, 2020 at 1:50 PM

Greetings from the Older Toddler Room! This week we are focusing on our theme: "Nursery Rhymes" So we are going to be singing a lot and learning about Nursery Rhymes that have been passed down the generations. Believe it or not? A lot of children as early as grade school all the way to high school do not know their "Nursery Rhymes" because they were not ever taught or exposed to them. Let's teach our children fun "Nursery Rhymes:-) On Monday, the children used their cognitive skills to count or sort the plastic money coins and place them in containers. At the manipulative table, the children used their manipulation skills to manipulate a piece of string and put it through the holes of a lacing board. At the art table, the children used their hands to hold a paintbrush dipped in white paint and frosting to apply to their cutout "Hot cross bun" The children also used their hands to apply raisins to their cutout. On Tuesday, the children used their manipulation skills to manipulate their playdough and place in a muffin tin. Some children broke pieces of their dough and placed them in each muffin tin hole. At the math table, the children used their cognitive skills to match their colored pom poms with the colored circles on the cupcake boards. The children also counted the pom poms and placed them in a container. At the art table, the children used a paintbrush dipped in blue paint to apply to their paper roll. The children used their hands to apply a paper flame for their candlestick. (Jack be Nimble) On Wednesday, the children used their cognitive skills to count the cotton balls and clothespins. The children could also put their items in a container. (Baa Baa Black Sheep) At the manipulative table, the children used their fine motor skills to manipulate a piece of yarn to wrap around a toy sheep. At the art table, the children used a paintbrush dipped in glue to apply to paper and used their hand to stick wiggly eyes and cotton balls for their sheep. On Thursday, the children used tongs at the manipulative table to pick up their safari animals and place them in containers. At the art table, the children used their fingers dipped in paint to apply to their paper. The children also used their hands while using a paintbrush dipped in glue to apply their cutout spider, sun and spout. (Itsy Bitsy Spider) On Friday, the children will explore a science experiment where we find out does a boiled egg vs. raw egg will break first when dropping it (Humpty Dumpty) We hope you have a great weekend:-)
