Exploring the drawing process by drawing in a frame in preschool!
Last week I shared our shape hunt activity as an introduction to our unit on shapes. First up on our list of shapes to explore was the circle. We explored this new shape by drawing circles in our salt trays... We use salt trays in our classroom quite frequently as a fine motor tool and to encourage pre-writing skills. We use a basic plastic tray that can be picked up at most any school supply [...]
If you want to add a little spark of curiosity to your classroom, then pick up a few Christmas boxes and you will have the simplest holiday invitation to play ever.
To promote time with shape recognition and drawing, I transferred our salt into to boxes that come in different shapes.
Come discover how our preschool children used fine motor and engineering skills to create their own salt tray mazes.
