I’m part of a co-op preschool, me and 4 other Moms rotate once a week hosting 2 hours of madness in our homes. Â A few weeks ago I got to plan a lesson around the letter S. I focused the activities around the “senses” that start with S: sight, sound and smell. We had class indoors due to a chilly morning wind, but I’m including notes on what I had planned to do outside had the weather cooperated or had I warned parents to dress their children accordingly.
This lesson centered nicely around the following two books:
Introduction Book: My Five Senses, by Aliki
Book: What do You do With a Tail Like This, by Steve Jenkins, Robin PageÂ (Read the section:Â What do you do with Eyes Like These)
– Do we use our eyes the same way as the animals in the book?
– What do we use ourÂ eyesightÂ for?
– Let’s go on aÂ scavengerÂ hunt and see how well we can use our eyes.
Activity: Scavenger Hunt
Cut out or print off Â small pieces of paper with the letter S. Write clues on the back of each paper that will lead the children to find the next clue. Hand a child the first clue, follow the clues to find all the letter S’s.Â Note: An outdoorÂ scavengerÂ hunt would be perfect for this.
