Letter of the week box: envelope, egg, emerald, elephant, evergreen tree, flash cards
Ee Snack: Egg
My son was very interested in the egg object in the letter of the week box!
First, I cracked the egg into a small bowl. I pointed out the parts of the egg: shell, egg yolk, and egg white. Shared with him that eggs come from chickens.
Then I had him stir the egg with one of his small forks.
I placed the egg in a small saucepan on the stove. I placed him on a high chair so he could see the egg cooking. But kept a close eye that he did not touch the burner! I let him stir the egg in the pan as well.
Once the egg was done, I placed it on a plate for him to eat!
As he ate the egg he watched Elle the elephant eat her eggs on the UTube video: "The E song", by KidsTv123
The video encouraged him to eat all the scrambled eggs! My son usually does not care for eggs ;)
Ee Craft: E is for eggs
Ee Activity: Sensory tub
What's inside: elbow macaroni, three empty envelopes, three empty eggs, 4 eggs with evergreen trees, 4 envelopes with items starting with E (egg, eggplant, 11, and evergreen), and scoopers.
My son loved to open the eggs and envelopes to find treasures inside. It was too cute when he would open an empty envelope or egg he would say, "Oh no! Missing!"
I cut out four items that start with E (eggplant, eleven, evergreen, and egg) and placed them each inside an envelope. Has he opened an envelope he would match that item onto the outline. In advanced I traced each item on the card stock paper.
Number Activity and Counting Craft: counting with cars
E loved driving the cars on the road. We discussed sizes of cars: small, medium or large. E balanced while walking on the road (not to veer off) and discussed directions: turn right, turn left or go straight.
Theme Activity: sensory tub
