Ok, so here is a QUICK look at what we did this week! We worked this week on People who Keep Us Healthy and we talked about Nurses, Doctors, and Dentists. You can see more of what we did at A Mommy Talks with Madonna, or visit our sister site 2 Teaching Mommies where you’ll find FREE lessons and printables for what’s below.
Here is a pic of our finished product. E is getting better, but we aren’t anywhere near perfection!
On this activity, E traced the letters with a toothbrush (because dentist was our theme, get it?) and we talked about what the letters were. I asked her to find the letter and trace it to work on letter recognition.
We measured patients to help our nurse out. This was WAY over E’s head. She didn’t get measuring vertically for some reason when the numbers were a different direction. I can get that. We tried a couple turned sideways, and she counted the boxes. That seemed to help.
I want to challenge her, and she didn’t get frustrated, she just didn’t quite get it. You all ever had that happen?
We did a germ activity (our germs were glitter, though the pics don’t show it) to make sure that we wash our hands and get all the germs off. Our “germs” are still floating around on my kitchen floor. Glitter isn’t the best, is it?
We also labeled the parts of the mouth and practiced brushing our teeth.
Family Night this week was had a doctor/dentist theme. We played a cover the boo boo game and we made a teeth themed snack!
That was our week! Be sure and check out what others did over at 1+1+1=1!
