Jack-in-the-box Craft

 

Prek 4 ( Adele Leeds)

With number rhymes we’ll practice numbers 3 and 6 recognition and formation.

J is this week’s letter. We’ll make jellyfish and jack-in-the-boxes and practice writing upper and lower case Js.

We’ll begin to celebrate the birth of Jesus and this season of caring and sharing for families and friends. Look for our crèche project.

We’ll explore ( using corks, candles, coins, apples, raisins, plastic toys etc.) why certain items either sink or float.

To review letters A-J and numbers 1-12, I’ll give each child a review sheet and crayon, dim the lights and shine a light on a letter or number on our classroom alphabet and number charts. The children will name the letters and numbers and cross them out on their sheets. This group activity is fun and cooperative.
