Today’s lesson was more conversation related than full of lots of activities. I originally intended for there to be a volunteer-related field trip for the afternoon but was coming up short on a lot of options that allowed a 4-year-old in tow. I was going to simply bake something with them and deliver it to a retirement community but wasn’t able to schedule something in a short period of time. This part of the lesson is to be continued! Truth be told, it was nice to have a simple 1 1/2 hour lesson today; being Friday after a busy week of school and swimming, we all were in need of some down time!
We started the day with morning circle and a bunch of books to help guide some great conversation!
Then onto some book work!
I had difficulty finding a great manner match up worksheet so I created one! You are more than welcome to it. If you use it, please leave a comment and use for personal use only!
After an easy pick your own snack, we moved onto our craft! This was a super easy but fun Cover Your Cough craft. All you need is a paper plate and some colored card stock. The boys drew themselves and then I traced their hands to use!
Ben was SO delighted when we put it all together and he realized the hand moved when you made the plate pretend to cough (think of it as being on a hinge moving up over the face and down below the plate).
The kiddos did great today and I think we all enjoyed having a nice short lesson that was full of meaning and fun!
