Here are some ideas as inspiration for a Christmas theme for you preschoolers.
This Christmas theme was the last theme of the year, and what a fun one! Look at all the crafts we made.
This patterned tree is so cheerful! The learners had to cut strips of paper, working on their scissors skills. I helped to cut their trees by folding the white paper in half first. They glued the strips at the back, over the cut tree, in a pattern. Afterward, they drew some pictures to complete the picture.
Although it does not snow here by us during Christmas time, we talked about Christmas in other countries, and the snow they experience. We made these snowmen by mixing shaving cream and glue. The kids painted it with their fingers, providing a lovely sensory experience. They added the rest of the materials to complete the picture.
A quick card for the parents. We used an ink pad and pressed fingers in a triangle shape, resembling a Christmas tree. The kids finished it off by adding some details, using felt-tipped pens.
The envelopes we made for the Fingerprint Card, were just as easy: torn red paper glued in the shape of a Christmas hat, stocking, or candy cane. Add a bit of glitter, and voila!
Pretty stars made from contact paper and sequins! These adorned our door, but could be used to make a card too!
The rapport cards/assessment papers are due to go out soon, and we decorated the envelopes with star cookie cutters and star stickers.
A learning activity that we did, categorizing right and left stockings, was fun and educational too!
And lastly, this simple science experiment stemmed from reading the story: The Thirsty Crow. I demonstrated how the crow got a little bit of water out of a bottle by adding rocks to the bottle, letting the water rise up, called displacement. The kids were amazed!
And that is a wrap folks! My time at school ends here too. Next year I will be working as a remedial therapist, and you could expect more learning activities, specifically focused on students with learning difficulties, on the blog! Thanks for reading along!
