The children have been working on Mother's Day gifts and Cards!
The children practiced naming flowers/colors by placing them into a large vase to fill up to make a Bouquet , small color family counters with colored rubber cups to match same colors in each bowl. we used real ice cream cones and large colored pom-poms for scooping, counting , filling and naming colors as the children put them into the cones, The children practiced opening and closing Jewelry boxes by lifting the locks and snapping them back down while counting coins and Friday, the children will work with number foam puzzles-naming numbers and finding where they fit in the puzzle board.
The children manipulated flower tooth picks/number flower crafts sticks by pressing them into round foam blocks, colored cupcake liners w/ shape links to match one-to-one, The children made Mother's Day cards by coloring with markers and gluing on "paper mom figures" we had cottages with family small counter people for manipulating and Friday the children will practice using chop sticks to pick up the colored pom-poms and fill up their Won Ton boxes. We have only used chop sticks one other time, so this is new and challenging.
