The children had a wonderful morning surrounded by happy monsters. We enjoyed a host of games focused on sorting by color, fine motor skills, counting, and early literacy. We made some one of a kind monsters and created some pretty funny faces with play dough.
Our art lesson incorporated some geometry. The boys and girls were given a sheet of paper to squeeze some brightly colored paint on. Once they were ready we folded the paper in half and squeezed the paint between the two halves. The children, then pealed the halves apart to reveal a beautifully symmetrical "monster". Each was given several wiggly eyes to decorate with. These were simple and yet quite beautiful. I loved how amazed the children were when they opened their paper to reveal a masterpiece.
We finished our day with some play dough fun. We made our own play dough monsters. They had such silly faces all with the help of a few Mr. Potato Head pieces. So much fun!
Here you will find little snippets of our days together. When my children were in preschool and would come home I would always ask, "So, what did you do today?". All they ever said was, "Played." That didn't tell me much. I hope this blog will be a place to share what we have done and help you ask more directed questions of your child. You will see first hand just what we do after you kiss your little one goodbye in the morning. It will also be a great place to visit and see just how much your child has grown and learned throughout the year.
