Our theme this week was the Ocean. I had lots of fun things planned for the week but we didn’t get to most of them. Let’s just say there was a general lack of enthusiasm this week when it came to school time ~ can I just blame it on the rainy weather? Aiden was in the mood for school time on Thursday so we did get in one day of learning fun.
Letter of the Week:
We made an O is for Ocean. To make it we filled a Ziploc bag with Corn Syrup and blue food coloring and added some sea animal buttons that I found at Michael’s. I taped it to the back of the letter O and let Aiden have fun squishing the bag.
Book of the Week and Craft:
and Aiden painted a rainbow fish.
When it was dry he glued some scales to the fish that I cut out of aluminum foil.
He also made a….um….well, it’s suppose to be an octopus but I think it looks more like a squid. To make it we used two brown paper bags. He colored one of the bags, put the cup in the bag and folded the edges over the cup. We used the second bag to cut the legs out. I taped the legs to the inside of the cup and let Aiden add the eyes.
Aiden did enjoy playing with his Fish Bubble Counting File Folder Game.

I added paper clips to the fish and put them in “water” ~ a big piece of blue felt. He caught them with his magnetic fishing pole.
That pretty much wraps up our week ~ day of Preschool! To check out more Preschool ideas and activities visit Preschool Corner!
