Z PLANE Z PLANE ~
Well, since none of the parents are my age , I doubt they find the humor in my blog title. 🙂
Today we talked about ways to travel in the air. We discussed whether any of us have flied and where we were headed . My flights to Australia last year were 24 hours. Thats a long time to be in the air. Riding in an airplane can be an exciting but scary thing too !
Our talk page today was this picture. To give you an example of how to develop language and get preschoolers to ” think” here are some questions I asked.
What is the little girl doing ?
What is the toy plane made of ?
Where do you think the real plane is going ?
Where is the little girl ?
What time of year is it ?
How do you know ?
These are just a few of the questions you could ask about this picture. The idea is to ask questions that the answer requires more than a yes or no answer. ( open ended questions )
We had a different sensory bin open today.
Outside with Ms Dallas the kids played a gross motor game too !
Inside we made paper airplanes and even watched a you tube to learn how to do it better. It was a little complicated so we went off on our own but maybe at home you can make this one !
We made a landing strip or runway in the playroom and there was a lot of taking off on there.
We made an emergent reader that focused on position words like above, below, behind and beside.
