Today (my 2.5 year olds) pre school was a combination of the CAC and play based learning. We worked on the number 8 using worksheets, building blocks and markers. We also worked on Healthy eating, the heart, fruits and Vegetables and how they all relate. This fit in very nicely with the 5021 meeting I had yesterday. I got to use much of that material.
While working on the heart portion, I had a lot of fun with this. we watched a child’s video on what the heart is and how it works. I showed them where their heart is located and the video told them it makes a “pump, pump” sound. I helped them feel their own heartbeat, had them run around, then had them feel it again. They laughed when they felt how fast it was beating.
We also watched a video on healthy foods vs unhealthy foods, (specifically fruits and vegetables).
Free play, dance and movement, outside, books, lunch, books, naps, play.
Then all bundled up and outside to meet the bus and play in the snow. Sledding wasn’t so much fun because the snow is frozen over. So we played on the play equipment out front and just in the snow.
Another great day.
