This week's theme was under the sea and it was fin-tastic! We started off this week with a vocabulary poster board of pictures and words relevant to the theme. We continued working on language and literacy development throughout the week by coloring on the letter "S" with crayons, writing with dry erase markers, playing "Starfish Says," tracing letters in the sand, and reading various books related to the theme. To work on our cognitive skills (which includes math and science) this week, we counted fish as we fed the hungry shark, we did an experiment where we combined oil and water, we counted different fish and we matched different fish by color. To help us with our motor development this week, we hung fish on clothespins, danced to the goldfish song, pressed seashells into play-doh, made ocean sensory bags, and used bingo daubers on an octopus. In art this week, we made a cheerio starfish, used tape to make a negative space clown fish, painted a sea turtle, and made paper plate jellyfish. This week we also tried to play duck duck goose, but we're not quite there yet. We also sang along to "If Sharks are Happy" sing-along song. We added pool noodle pieces to our sensory table and gel shapes to our block area and the young toddlers enjoyed them very much. Tomorrow we will search for fish with our names on it, rescue ocean animals from ice, string rigatoni on an octopus, glue macaroni scales on a fish, and of course read about fish in our book, A School of Fish.
