Here are TWO very fun circle time activities that the children LOVE to help you act out. Be expressive and enjoy the laughter! Be sure to watch BOTH videos, below:
This next one will have the children squealing, “Do it again, do it again!”
Leaves are Falling!
Create a seasonal feel of falling leaves right in your classroom. (Not necessary to write names on each hand…make it a community activity and fun to wonder who’s hand it is.)
Each child can trace his/her hand on fall-colored construction paper, cut it out (remember, it does not need to look perfect), punch a hole on the wrist, and thread colored yarn through hole. Hang each leaf-hand from the ceiling.
The purpose of this lesson is to identify and replicate the pattern given. This helps train the mind to “read” and decode patterns.
An original project by UMA graduate Melissa Briede from Westfield, IN. It’s an appropriate activity for this time of year, especially with the latest round of blizzards in the US! Place this in the Language area of your classroom.
