We marked the end of our “All About Me” unit with a party theme.
We read a book, Three Kind Mice, a story about three mice who made a cake for their friend, the cat.
We talked about how the mice in the story “Synergized”, or worked cooperatively in order to make the cake.
Then we made cupcakes.
We talked about the concepts full/empty and wet /dry.
We used a measuring cup to put the right amount of water and oil in the batter.
We took turns stirring the batter.
We counted as we stirred….
We expanded our imaginative play skills while having a pretend party in our housekeeping area.
Friends enjoyed using party horns….
It was a great oral-motor activity!
At the end of the week, we took turns aiming and hitting at a target, using a pinata on the blacktop.
Here’s what came out of the pinata (packs of gummy bears.)
We enhanced our gross motor skills by batting and kicking balloons in our motor room.
We exchanged gifts with our friends and practiced saying, Thank You!
After lunch on Friday, we decorated cupcakes.
First, we spread icing with craft sticks. Next, we put sprinkles on top. Then, we ate our creations…
