As an Experience Early Learning Blog Ambassador, we receive the Experience Early Learning preschool curriculum in exchange for sharing our honest and authentic stories resulting from our personal experiences. As always, our opinions on amazing things for children are 100% our own. Keep in mind that all preschoolers do things in their own time and on their own terms. What one is ready for, another might not be. Please use your best judgement when planning activities for your children.
This month, our Experience Early Learning (formerly Mother Goose Time) theme is Orchard Harvest and today's topic is Seed.
The children had a wonderful time learning about the Life Cycle of a Tree today during our Table Top Math activity.
For this activity, we used a spinner, life cycle circles, scissors, and glue. The children cut the life cycle circles into five slices and put them all on one tray.
We encouraged the children to take turns spinning and collecting pieces until they had one of each.
Activities such as this one are perfect for preschoolers! That's why we love Experience Early Learning.
After that, we put them in order and glued them onto a piece of construction paper. What a wonderful hands-on way to learn about the life cycle of a tree!
Not only did the children have the opportunity to practice math and reasoning skills such as patterns and sequencing, but they also practiced fine motor skills and taking turns while exploring natural science and life cycles.
The activities that are included in each month's preschool curriculum kit are quick and easy. With just a few basic supplies, we're able to teach so many important early learning skills through play.
