The theme for December is "Holidays" but really is just Christmas.
We have been talking about the color red and gree. The shape has been the triangle. The books have carried from some Christmas books to the Mat man shapes book from hand writing without tears curriculum.
These are the activities we have done.
Trees - the first day the kiddos cut the triangles. We prove by gluing the triangles on the paper then the kiddos glued the trunk and the tissue paper. We worked on shapes, cutting, requesting more, attending, squishing (glue bottle), and taking turns
Christmas trees - on the first day the kiddos painted the plates green, the next day they cut the plates into four, the following day they decorated the trees. We only used three to make trees on the wall. We worked on the color green, triangle shapes, colors for the dot markers, star shape, taking turns, requesting, attending.
Stockings - in the morning (during free time) the kiddos painted the stocking red then after snack (it was WAY too cold to go out and play this week) they glued the cotton balls and used glitter for their initials.
Ruddolf - first daysthe kiddos painted the plates and did hand prints, we prep by cutting the hand prints, the next day the kiddos glued the nose and the eyes and drew a mouth. We worked on the color brown, sang the Ruddolf song, worked on sensory by touching the paint for hand prints and following directions and attending
Santa - day one painted the plates red ( morning activity), during a center the kiddos put the Santa together gluing the beard and putting the hat together, saw Ella's. The face. We worked on the color red, following directions, asking for help, and taking turns
Ginger bread man - one morning the kiddos painted the plates and during a center they put it together. They look awesome and theya re so big. We worked on colors, sizes (the plate and the head/ big and little), counting the Pom pons, what you need for the face (two eyes, a nose, and a mouth)
More gingerbread men - these ones we made one morning, the sample was from Target $1 bin and we just made a couple extras for all the kiddos
For Parents - the kiddos made a Ruddolf and a Santa hat ornament but we also made mistletoes. They came out super cute. They will be laminated and sew ill use a hot glue to put ribbon in the back for hanging. The kids LOVEd having their feet painted with a paintbrush!!!
