Last week I had posted about the trays we added for M (18 mo old) in the school room. D(4) had a lot of fun with M's trays! I made a few trays for D using the halloween and pumpkin themes. Here are some pictures of what we have.
I added this pouring bugs(bugs from dollar tree) tray. I found these cute small glass jugs at the dollar store too!
We did this skeleton puzzle last year too. I added this to the shelf and D loved it and started working with right away. Along with assembling the skeleton we also discussed the names of the bones. This also tied in well with our Vertebrate work.
I made some black and orange play-doh made for some halloween fun! Walmart had some halloween cookie cutters that I added to our ever growing collection of play-doh tools!
We are practicing counting by 5's. We don't own bead chains, need to get those! We've worked on our hundred board, stamping using our dot marker. I added this for additional practice. I used a marker to write the numbers on the pumpkin picks and used a styrofoam block to stick it in. I placed little dots to help her know where to insert the picks.
This next tray is NOT halloween themed, but I thought I would post about it anyway since it was on our shelves! We are working on addition facts up to 10. So I set some of our domino pieces (sum up to 10 only) and a bunch of part-whole circles. D was free to use our Right Start Abacus if needed. She started off using it, but eventually got the facts and never needed it.
We also made a lot of pumpkin/halloween crafts, but that is for another post!
