For Circle Time or Story Time!
Below are some Picnic books
that you may like to read during your Picnic theme week at your daycare, preschool or home school.
We read one or two of the of the books listed below each day to the children during circle time or story time.
After we read a few stories
we will show the children a Picnic finger rhyme or sing them a Picnic song
to help the children learn about this week's theme.
Next, we will have the children create a Picnic craft,
after that we take the children outside.
When the children come back inside we will have them focus on a fine motor activity or learning activity involving either a game, science, social studies, language arts, sensory, gross motor, or some other type of activity with colors, numbers, shapes or letters while learning about this weeks theme - Picnics.
Our curriculum offers fun age appropriate activities with lots of hands on activities! The children will learn about this weeks theme during circle time or group time activities, playing fun games, singing songs or learning finger rhymes, making arts & crafts, plus we offer pre reading & writing activities, language arts, math, sensory activities, gross & large motor activities, science activities for preschool kids along with lots of fun activities that teach the children their colors, numbers, counting, basic shapes and alphabet letters!
