Today we continued to learn about the parts of our body. We talked about our arms, legs, belly, feet, hands, elbows, knees, fingers and toes! WOW! We even reviewed the parts we learned about yesterday!
The children had a great time pointing to each of these body parts. We sang “Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes” to get the children up and moving, while continuing to practice identifying their body parts! We sang it over and over again! Ask your child to show you the motions at home. 🙂
This morning we used Playdough to practicing making bodies and different body parts! The preschoolers love using Playdough and would use it all day if I let them.
We also had our first chapel service this morning! We talked about how it is important for us to be respectful while in God’s House. We talked about how we sit quietly and how we should act. The children paid attention and had a great time listening to and interacting with Pastor Biber!
Center time was enjoyed very much by the Preschoolers today! Here is what we did:
Art Center: We practiced tracing our hands with crayons and used a stamp pad to put our fingerprints on the paper.
Sensory Table: We used shaving cream again today to practice making our letter “L” and to draw people with faces and body parts. For some of the kiddos this was a big hit and others are still unsure.
Writing Center: We used our letter “L” paper to continue practicing how this letter is made. Today we used glue and yarn to help us make this letter. This was difficult for some but all were excited to try it out.
Block Center: The wooden blocks were used today. The children were encouraged to make the letter “L” out of the wooden blocks.
Potato Head Center: The preschoolers were able to use what we have learned about the body in our Mr. Potato Head center. The children had a good time giving Mr. Potato Head silly faces and putting on his arms, legs and shoes!
We had a great day today. Our marble jar is getting very full!
See some of you tomorrow!
