With Sunday being St. Patrick’s Day, we did activities about it. We watched a small 5-7min cartoon on You Tube and me and my teachers learned from it. Did you know St. Patrick was a slave from England and brought to Ireland?
Well our sensory table this week has wild bird seed, that looks like dirt but cleaner. Also we learned it can also look like mouse poop when on the floor. Lol. I put in plastic coins and shovels in there as well so they could dig up their treasure. The kids loved it.
I’m a little late, Chinese New Year was Sunday February 10th. Plus it’s a long while since I’ve posted anything. There have been things I have wanted to blog but not actually take the time to post it.
Some of the kids favorite activities of the week was the red and yellow noodles in the sensory table and using chopsticks.
This week for Thanksgiving in the classroom, we had another fall sensory table. This time hay (or fall raffia, this was much cheaper), fake fall leaves, and Indian corn. The kids liked to pick off the corn. But watch out! They also like to try to eat it. What what do toddlers not put in their mouths.
I’m Shana, and I teach a toddler room where the kids are older 1 year olds and younger 2 year olds. Here I will share things that me and the children do to have fun and learn.
Recently we learned about the season fall. Every week the sensory table is changed out for new experiences. In this table is mini pumpkins and gourds. Then also pine cones and bird seed. The bird seed allows something to run through their fingers as they explore the textures of the gourds. Also I didn’t realize that bird seed is citrusy. Every time we took the lid off, it smelled so good.
