Then, I had a bag of balloons of various colors and I had the kids put them in piles according to color. I explained that some had a couple of shades of a color, such as purple had a lilac and a dark purple; the blue had a navy blue and sky blue, etc. After we sorted them, we counted them out and I put them in piles of tens so that they could be introduced to that concept. Then we put the balloons away
First I handed this picture to them I explained that it is important to follow instructions. I then showed them that they were to trace the balloon with the color red, and color that balloon.
Next we used these clown cards to find matches, to see differences and to see how they were the same.
Then it was time for snacks and Tripp brought bunny crackers and marshmallow treats.

At the very end, there was a clown picture and they were blindfolded and had to put the nose on the clown. I think it was a tie between Chase and Sam.
Our last activity was cutting the four pieces of the puzzle out and putting them in the correct order. It was a little tricky but they all finally got it done.
Well, the children all left with a little bag full of goodies--some cotton candy, bubbles, good and plenty, circus peanuts and a Chinese puzzle.
I hope that they had a good time and had fun as they used their large and small motor skills!!
Another good day at GranJan's PreK
