This week we are starting a unit on Ocean and Sea Life. Each day I hope to complete a few activities that have to do with our theme. Today we made an octopus and completed a developmentally appropriate math worksheet. We will also be reading a lot this summer. We have set our goals and the kiddos will receive a reward once we've reached our milestones along the way. They will also be participating in the summer reading program at the library. I plan to keep them busy (though I'm sure I'll still hear, "I'm bored" plenty!)!
To make our octopus, we used a balloon and crepe paper. I blew up the balloons first and let them have some fun batting them around for a little gross motor work. We turned on some music and I challenged my oldest not to let it fall on the ground more than ten times during a song.
