With a holiday known for it’s celebration of a particular color, I had to look to the symbols and other meanings to help explain St. Patrick’s Day to my daughter. We talked about “green” as well, as I try not to leave out learning about colors simply because she cannot see them. (We can’t see oxygen, but we must learn about it, right?!) Here are a few activities we did this week. Her favorite was the Rainbow Art!
|We used 3D coins with textured paper underneath to section off each part of the problem tactually.
Each texture is different to represent each part of the number sentence!
|The coins are then moved to the right of the equal sign to find the total sum!|
IMAGINATION – Let’s Dress Up!
This is also a perfect time to reinforce the importance of respect and manners. We read a chapter from “Winnie the Pooh’s Book of Manners” each afternoon. Available via Bookshare’s Read2Go App.
