Bring a simple machine

 (think egg beater, pencil

sharpener, zipper, spring, etc.).

Topic: Machines

How machines make our lives easier 

The value we’ll be studying is self-reliance, which is confidence in our own ability.

For cooking, we’ll be making orange/

banana shakes.

Outside, we’ll build a city in the sandbox.

The songs we’ll be singing are Wheels on the Bus, It’s a Small World, One Hammer, and Do Your Ears Hang Low?

For creative dramatics, we’ll be a machine, pretend to be egg beaters, act like a train, and thread the needle.

Our art activities will be painting with wheels, painting with stencils, and making maps with cars and trucks.

For motor development we’ll work on flexibility with yoga poses.  For vesbibular function, we’ll spin and roll and hang upside down.
