To help understand The Prodigal Son The Dragons and I acted out the story. We did this a couple times switching roles. Little Dragon enjoyed the role play because he got to wear his spider man robe and be 'dad'.
We used stuffed animals and play food as props.
(I was busy playing too so there are no pictures)
The felt board was another way The Dragons re told the story.
Inside this weeks folder were small pictures of letter p animals and items. The Dragons painted these then added them to their letter 'p' for the alphabet wall.
Using pink and purple markers (both start with p and purple is our week color) The Dragons practiced writing the letter p in their alphabet journal.
The Dragons finished their week folder.
Pigs as the main theme we had a lot of fun with them. Me being a pig lover we have many stuffed pigs in the house and they came in handy this week.
Little Dragons favorite pig activity this week was The 3 Little Pigs.
I made story pieces for the felt board
Doll Dragons favorite pig activity was watching Charlotte's Web.
After watching the movie I set out the animals and she reenacted the movie.
I also set up a number activity pig feeding trough.
This was fun for both The Dragons.
I numbered the egg carton holes 1-12. The Dragons had to match the number of kernels in the hole to the number labeled.
Of course it turned into a sensory bin :)
We had pigs in a blanket for lunch one day too.
- ceramic pig from the dollar store
- paint brush
- cup of water for rinsing the paint brush
This was a surprise gift for The Dragons. They were very excited to get their piggy banks. They both spent a good amount if time painting their pigs to perfection. :)
I just have to remember to give them change.
We don't finger paint often because we are also discovering other materials to paint with. Today we used our fingers. It is always a blast for the kids to get their hands messy and create.
I asked for pictures of farm animals. That didn't really happen.
- Purple paper
To further incorporate p into our lessons this week Little Dragon did a painting on his purple paper. I asked him some words that started with p, he said police car, so he painted a couple police cars.
Something was going on below the cars but I don't recall what it was.
More farm and sensory play
We did some planting
Finger Puppets were The Dragons tag along friends this week.
We ate parfaits.
And Doll Dragon had a "Gods Little Princess" packet. She colored each princess as someone that was important to her and also a princess of God.
Little Dragon had some pirate themed activities in his folder.
