In Week Two of Mother Goose Time‘s Bugs & Crawly Things curriculum, we learned about bug homes. We learned that bugs live in plants, dirt, webs, hives, or hills. Monkey of course pointed out that the hills are made of dirt, so “it’s like kinda the same thing…” (with an eye roll – since when is he a moody teenager?!?)
I love seeing how Monkey and Booger will approach the invitations to create differently. I also love when I “catch” one of them watching the other and then copying what’s being done. 🙂 Monkey at first decided he was making a leaf that was impossible for bugs to eat. When he saw that there was a hole punch on the table, he changed his mind though.
I have noticed that Monkey is much more willing to practice his handwriting when using anything other than traditional writing materials, so this activity was perfect. We decided to pretend that the green sand was actually dirt and that worms were writing the letters. It was so much fun!
Thanks for stopping by! Next week we will be learning about camouflage bugs.
