Preschool Routine, Tuesdays

ED’s Tuesday Routine: So you heard yesterday that I’m planning to use biome/habitat themes with ED this fall. This is what I have planned in a general way for Tuesdays:
Arts and Crafts (based on the theme)
Montessori Math Beads; Math Activities
Science Sorts (Long post and link to my 30-pages of notes, etc.!)
Arts and Crafts

The girls painted boxes to make a diorama.

Now all this needs is the sea creatures!

The kids have had a blast making various sea creatures.  They made fish, jelly fish and sharks for nearly two hours! I found an amazing set of ocean craft ideas over at Playing House in Maryland.

Montessori Math Beads:
I have Tuesdays set aside to bring out the Montessori math beads and work with ED on some basic number skills.

I think this might be called the “Bead Stair” in Montessori circles.  I simply cut out two triangles from felt (so the beads won’t roll off) and set out the appropriate beads (we’re using 1 to 6 this week).  The triangle helps create a control so that the child can visually see the progression.

 

This week I also set out a jellyfish number matching activity and our number puzzle.

 

Science Sorts:
Living-Non Living Cards

We have free living-non-living cards here.  They have gotten a lot of use these past few years.

More about our science sorts this fall at this post.
