Welcome to Animal Week! Our friends, The Cole’s have a really fun animal charades game to teach you today! We hope you enjoy acting out these different animals.
Like Cooper mentioned, you can play this game so many different ways, it doesn’t have to be with animals!
Here is the link to the animal cards – https://bit.ly/2zy6v8z
Welcome to today’s SPRING edition of Movement Monday and #goodafternoonwithBAC
Today Melissa has her children helping with some spring outdoor clean up, planting, and turtle fun. All of these activities have great development opportunities! We encourage you to get the little ones involved when doing your spring cleaning and planting.
Tell us what you’ve planted lately or some of your kid friendly spring cleaning ideas.
Anyone know if Cooper is correct about his turtle being a Canadian Box Turtle?
We kick off the week with Monday Math! The Cole Family is back with an AWESOME math activty to get you moving today! Both of these activities are from Susie Allison over at Busy Toddler! Check out her website busytoddler.com for so many fun hands-on activites!
What we love about both of these activities is the versatility. For Post It Math, Cooper did addition problems but this can be simplified to number identification (match the post it numbers to the numbers written on the butcher paper) or made harder with subtraction, multiplication, division, etc. You could even match shapes!!
Don’t have a deck of cards for Number Math Hunt? No problem! Draw stars, hearts, diamonds, or dots on pieces of paper and hide it in your sensory bin. Like Melissa said, you don’t have to have rice, any filler will do! What we love about this game is it helps children with number identification and matching.
What math activities are you doing today?
Melissa gives us some great ideas on outdoor learning! Take your child’s school work outside! Math on the sidewalk, draw a picture of the book you’re reading, and use the magnatiles on your gargage door! So many fun ideas!
How are you doing with distant learning?
