Staying Busy

Though it has been a short week because of Memorial Day, we have been busy at preschool. I wanted to share a couple of really fun activities that are keeping my preschoolers engaged! It has been a wet spring in Minnesota and we have been having fun coming up with new activities to stay busy inside when it is wet outside.

Playing with our feet!

A parent donated a kiddy pool today. Of course we immediately filled it with pom poms, stripped off our shoes/socks and danced. They loved the sensory experience and squishing the pom poms between their toes. Many enjoyed rolling around in the pool. Tomorrow I am thinking noodles!

Fancy Jewelry
 Students were given a simple circle with a hole and all sorts of open ended materials. Look at what one student created. The creative juices were flowing.

ABC Picture Sort

I had some students spend an entire hour sorting pictures by beginning letters. I simply taped down sticky notes to the table. The pictures are images I pulled from the internet; any picture or flashcard set would work. Students sorted around sixty images. On the following day, I put out lowercase letters at the table. Way to go!

Keep on keeping on!

  1. That is some amazing fancy jewelry! Maybe this student was inspired by the awesome fashion sense of his/her teacher!
