Mother Goose Time: Day 5
Day 5 Topic Discussion was about Leaves.
The leaf topic poster is pictured above. I make copy of the posters for the children to color whenever they desire to. Often when they are coloring the poster they begin to wonder, and ask specific questions about what is on the poster.
We briefly talked about what sound does "a" make . The card materials that you see comes in the Day bag too.
They went on a hunt to find puzzle pieces to match the picture. The puzzle comes in the bag, I made a copy for them to match to.
We also cut leaves and glued them to a tree. This is an activity that I would of normally just made available on the shelf, but when I showed them the work everybody wanted to do it , right now:)
