Teaching Concepts for Large Group

1.  What kind of clothes do we have on today?  What season is it? Is that why we are wearing the kind of clothes we are wearing? 2.  What are climate zones? Refer to Learn Everyday Preschool Curriculum page 382-386 3.  Go into the different climate zones into more detail the rest of the week.  Refer to Learn Everyday Preschool Curriculum 382-386

Teaching Concepts for Small Group

1.  File folder games mentioned above. 2.  Classify and sort. 3.  Design a T shirt using a felt piece in the shape of a shirt and use collage materials to decorate. 4.  Make a weather “bear/child” and dress the child appropiately. You can have a selection of clothing and they choose what is appropiate. 5.  Memory game/matching game- fall clothing 6.  Sorting clothing cards with seasons. 7.  Dress a paper child- Each child has a body mat and the selection of clothes. On a sheet, glue on one of each of the clothing items and put a number next to it. Have each child roll a die. They look at the chart and find out what piece of clothing goes with their number and glues that on first. They can end by adding facial feature. 8.  In the fall we begin to wear socks more often because our feet get cold. You can order seven silly socks (alliteration). Make the silly socks with patterns and then you have another activity…describing the patterns. 9.  Pattern with fall clothing… long sleeve shirt, socks, long sleeve shirt, socks. 10.  Hang up fall clothing on a clothesline. That’s great fine motor. You can incoporate patterns there as well. Or you can put letters on the clothespins and they hang up the clothing items with the corresponding beginning letter. For example, hanging up long socks with clothespins labeled with the letter s. 11.  Have laundry baskets labeled with numbers and the child places the corresponding number of clothing items in each basket. 12.  Sequence jackets by size, or sort them by color/design, or match jackets to jeans using numbers/number dots; uppercase/lower case letters, etc. 13.  Weighing Socks- Fill socks with different materials such as rocks, marbles, cotton balls, or shredded paper. Tie a knot in the opening of each sock. Children pick up and feel the weight of each sock. They determine which socks weigh the same, which socks are heavier, and which socks are lighter. Show the children how to use the balance scale to determine which of two socks is heavier or lighter. 14.  Share ‘n’ Tell: Have the students wear or bring in their favorite (clean) pair of socks. (or other items of fall related clothing). 15.  Have a set of sweaters/long sleeve shirts and write a numeral, 0-10, on each one. Provide buttons. They place the corresponding number of buttons onto the sweater. You can do it as a small group and make a display…they can cut out the basic long sleeve shirt/sweater shape and draw a card/number manipulative and glue that number of buttons onto their shirt. Then you can work together to order them correctly onto a wall. 16.  You could bring in a variety of clothes and use magnify glasses and sense of touch to explore the different materials. If you use different seasonal clothes, you can sort them and come to the conclusion that fall/winter clothing are a lot heavier then spring/summer clothing. You can ponder over that… writing down the children’s explanation. You can make rubbings of the materials to see the texture.

Teaching Concepts for Outdoor Experiences

N/A    

CLASS Concepts

• Show pictures of different types of shoes such as cowboy boots, football cleats, ballet slippers, house shoes, fireman boots, etc. (even better if you can bring in the actual shoes). Ask the children questions like “Who do you think wears shoes like this? Why? What might happen if they wore a different type of shoe?” • Take a picture of every child’s left foot and right foot. Print them out and encourage the children to match the left shoe to the right shoe. If some of the children have the same or similar shoes, that’s great! It will give them opportunities to problem solve by determining which shoes look the same size, have the same amount of wear, have the same laces, etc
