This week we were introduced to the number 13. These larger numbers are very difficult for some of the little ones in my group. We did a lot of counting and making sets and completed the following activity papers... a counting and tracing page.
We made an egg collage. We took eggs and did a little coloring with crayons and used our dot markers to fill in the egg which turned out like a crayon resist. We cut out the eggs and glued them onto a piece of construction paper.
We did a cut and paste Easter egg and basket which was good for them because they need practice cutting things that aren't a straight line.
We found hidden Easter eggs... or the oval shape.
We counted dots on eggs and put them on the number that corresponds with the correct number of dots.
And we waterpainted an Easter egg. One of my children missed learning time so I decided to waterpaint with the children. One of my little darlings said, "Miss Rose, you paint so nice. That's why I want to be a teacher just like you. So I can be just like you." He has told me often he wants to be a teacher... it makes me feel so good inside... must be doing something right with him!
