Comments Off on Colors and Shapes are Starting
There has been a lot of random labeling of colors and shapes within our play recently. By random I mean the children are just trying out the labels without correctly applying them. This is a group that also gravitates to puzzles. To observe the knowledge base, I pulled out an activity using these interests that would provide me with a chance to see color and shape working together.
I video taped all interaction during the activity. Here’s a chance to see our starting point. I’ll be reviewing and pulling goals for future activities.

Comments Off on The Tractor!
We were busy again this week as we continued to settle into our preschool lesson time schedule. The children were all involved and attempted the activities that were presented. The hit lesson was building our shape tractors.
This activity was not about cutting skills, so I precut all the shapes in either red or green, as those are the colors of the tractors that visit the fields around us. It was about shape review and gluing skills.
We built our tractors step by step after making a background with grass and sky.
