We enjoyed delicious treats!
Thank you so much to all parents who contributed. :)
We read "Go Away Big Green Monster", by Ed Emberly.
We then strengthened our fine motor muscles and spatial awareness,
as we created our own Big Green Monsters!
and practiced turn taking.
We also practiced how to hold a crayon using Handwriting Without Tears "Orange" paper.
As children complete this activity, they are learning to:
-recognize and identify basic colors
-recognize familiar two-dimensional shapes
-listen to oral directions to attend to a simple task
-respond to simple questions
-learn words linked to content being taught
-use their helping hand to stabilize objects and papers
-use the same hand consistently to hold crayons
-use their fingers to hold crayons
-use their index finger to trace colors
