The Moon, Music and Muddy Puddles…Day 3 Activities

Today is day 3 and we continued our moon investigation, danced to some fun music and jumped in muddy puddles.

Moon Web– We began our third day by creating a web that documented everything we know about the moon. At first I wrote while my daughter dictated what to write but then she wanted to write and I helped her spell the words. She remembered a few facts from the books we read the day before and through prompting we were able to recall even more. Moon Dot to Dot, Cutting Practice and Drawing– Dot to dots are so good for preschoolers and I found a moon one. I also found lines to trace to help strengthen fine motor skills and a picture of the moon that Lillian drew a face on.

Phases of the Moon– We made a phases of the moon mini book and then made the phases of the moon with Oreo cookies. We didn’t have any chocolate Oreos in the house so we used vanilla and it worked just as well. Visit Science Bob’s website for more details and a template.
Finger Training Activity- My daughter struggles with holding a pencil properly so I am always on the lookout for new activities to strengthen these skills. Her teacher sent home this fun activity.

Dance Party- Laurie Berkner, one of our favorite musicians who sings kid music is doing daily live concerts through Facebook. She also read a book. Go to Laurie Berkner’s website and visit her on Facebook for more info. Muddy Puddles– In our effort to get outside everyday we took a walk around the neighborhood and jumped in muddy puddles!
