Circles Day 2

Math: We learned about patterns. We stuck w/ simple patters since he's only 3. I was surprised at how well he caught on. The purple one I did all but the last two on my own and he watched. By the red one he did it all by himself and by the yellow one he was even taking the stickers off the sheet for it. I was proud of him. *proud mommy blushing*

We also discussed the seasons. I cut out the tree (remember I'm not an artist) and glued it on and cut the grass and glued it on and had the paper divided into fourths. Then I labeled each one the name of a season and we discussed them. I used a hole punch to make the decorations since the theme is circles. The first one is winter so it has white ones for snow. The next one is spring w/ pink circles for flowers. The third one is summer so green ones for the leaves. The fourth one is fall w/ orange ones for the falling leaves. =D I just smeared the glue around and he put the circles in place.



We also sang a song about circles being our favorite shape and Collin had to think about something that was a circle and we incorporated it and what it did into the song. I would put the lyrics on here so this made more sense but I don't know if it's copyrighted or anything so I don't know if I'm allowed to post it since I didn't make it up. Sorry. You'll just have to take my word for it. ;)
