We wrapped up Week Four of Mother Goose Time‘s “Bugs & Crawly Things” preschool curriculum by learning about crawly things like caterpillars, slugs, beetles, inchworms, and centipedes.
This week’s favorite activity was the caterpillar invitation to create. The boys LOVE using the cornstarch noodles. They always start by sticking them to their faces, but they eventually got down to business and used the noodles to create a caterpillar crawling on the cardboard tube.
I’ve mentioned before that I love the word family goes and I Can Read books that are included in each month’s curriculum. This month’s offerings are no different. The boys used this cute spinner to practice making -ug words. We had just watched Trolls, so anytime they made “Hug” they would shout “HUG TIME” and tackle each other with a hug. It was hilarious!
The I Can Read book are simple readers with a lot of repetition and use the monthly sight words. They also occasionally throw in a new vocabulary word that you wouldn’t typically find in an early reader. This month the word was “entomologist” which led to a great discussion of different careers and different science fields.
Thanks for stopping by! Next week, we set sail to Alphabet Island!
