Science: J is for Jello
We talked about boiling water (hot) and cold tap water (cold) as we mixed the Jello for this activity. We stirred and watched the powder dissolve. We put two boxes of raspberry Jello in a baking pan, and took it outside to play with when it set up.
This was a fantastic sensory experience as Little Lady poked, prodded, scooped, squeezed, squished, and on and on.
After a half hour, our Jello looked like this.
In the end, our Jello sensory play was awesome fun. But shame on me, shame on me, for choosing raspberry Jello instead of something like peach or apricot. What was I thinking? Oh.... the stains.....
Literacy: practice drawing letter J
I in no way expect my under-two year old to write letters but letter J is similar to marks she likes to make on her paper, anyway, so we just talked about it and practice the J shape more. We wrote it in marker, crayon, and on the chalk table.
Art: J is for J things
We colored our letter J and added several J-item stickers. Little Lady loves to color so art is always good fun.
Movement: J is for jumping
We practiced jumping over things. Then she noticed the Whoopee Cushion. Then she wanted to jump on that. So we did. It was jumping (with sound effects)!
Music: J is for John Jacob
I won't even try to spell the last name involved in this song, but it's a fun one that involves shouting and whispering. We practiced singing loud when our arms were up and soft when our arms were down. We also sang Jesus Loves the Little Children.
Spanish: J is for jugar
