Play, Learn, and Grow in 4K
During our interactive read alouds we have been listening for who are the characters in the book. Last week, we read Mrs. Wishy Washy by Joy Cowley and got to play in the mud (a.k.a. brown finger paint) ! In the story each animal takes turns rolling around in the mud and saying "Oh Lovely Mud!" We really enjoyed this project!
This past week the children were introduced to activities with dot cards and dice. These activities help to grow the ability to subitize. Subitizing is the ability to 'see' a small amount of objects and know how many there are without counting. Subitizing is a fundamental skill in the development of number sense. I encourage you to play lots of broad games with dice and counting at home!
This week in small groups we counted "pumpkins" and put them on vines using beads and pipe cleaners :)
