The first week back at school my lesson plan is very simple. We played shape, color and number games, get to know each other games and I also plan activities that will "test" the kids and see what they know and if they know how to do things like cutting, gluing, use a pencil. Here are a few pictures of a few of our "simple" activities.
|This one was done by a 4 year old. I didn't instruct them to build or create. I just set the materials out and he came up with this on his own. What a difference a year makes!|
|Number Pattern: Using a sentence strip I wrote 1, 2, 3 along the bottom in a pattern. With bingo dobbers, the 4/5 class were able to make that many dots above the number. This was a simple introduction to patterning, counting and color matching.|
|Finger painting! We read the book Mouse Paint before we painted. Most of the 3's class know their colors, so we mixed two colors together to make a new color-MAGIC!|
The week has ended with a success! Next week out theme is "All About Me!".
