Sensory Table FUN!

Today we continued working on Letter A, Number 1 and our Apple theme! I also introduced the sensory tub!

Gluing marshmellows on letter "A"-This was a great project because it involved the letter A of course and also, colors of the marshmellows and the circles on the letter A.
004

bought the Apple at the dollar tree and printed the little apple/letter As to glue on it.
006

Sensory Tub! Normally I will start this on Monday and let him use it every day but since this weeks sensory tub is shaving cream we only did it one day. He loved this though. I added some sand tools and some foam letters. Super fun!

Fun with Apples!

So since our theme this week is apples, I found some really cute apple projects online. :) Cam especially liked painting with the apple! so cute!

I Printed this cute tree and let Cam color it. He then glued on the apples!
004

This is a really cute book about counting apples and baking apple pie! Cam used the felt board when I read this too. I cut out little red numbered apples and we sang 1 little, 2 little, 3 little apples while cam put them on the felt board.
018

counting real apples! he really liked doing this!

Cameron really loves activities on the felt board! I found this cute poem and shamrocks online so I cut them for him to use as a felt board activity. (From now on I'll try to remember where i get stuff so i can share. ;) :)) I started the poem/activity on Monday and will continue to do this until St patricks day. He's already trying to say the poem with me. :)
016

This was a #1 printout that i printed for Cam to try. I wasn't sure if he would be able to do this but he really caught on quick..so i think i'll try to do these for each letter/number that we work on. :)
