March Week 3

Teaching Picture: Puppy

Print out the color red picture and laminate

Hold up for the children and say red

On the download page you will find the printable pages and print out today’s picture. Tape the picture to the wall in a location where the toddlers can see it.

As you show the picture to children, talk about the picture, tell the children about the picture. Talking to the toddlers is a good way for them to get started on using their own language skills. The more words a toddler hears the more he learns, even if he/she is not talking yet, they are listening and learning and all of a sudden they will be talking.

Refer to the language development section below for a few suggestions on things to talk about with toddlers about the picture, the language development will give you suggestion on things to talk about or it will show an activity, rhyme or story and then continue talking to the children about the picture, using your own words.

Keep in Mind: Any and all printed material is not safe for toddlers. So do not give any printouts to the children unless you are supervising them. These are for you to hold up or attach to the wall.

Look at your toddlers and in a soothing voice talk about the picture:

Music: Soft Rock

Play folk music for the children today.

Please Note: You can check at your local library and try to borrow some folk music to play for the toddlers, if they do not have folk music, try to select some different types of music to play for the children, such as; blues, classical, country, soft rock, etc.

Play the music softly throughout the day in the background and it would be nice to play it quietly during naptime also to help the children settle down to go to sleep and keep them sleeping with a soft back ground noise.

Language Development: This Little Puppy
Poem

This little puppy went to the park (Hold up index finger and move it up and down as you recite the line)

This little puppy stayed home (Still holding up index finger bring up middle finger and move back and forth while reciting line)

This little puppy had a bone. (Still holding up 2 fingers bring up ring finger and move it back and forth while reciting line)

And this puppy had none (still hoding up 3 fingers bring up pinky finger and move it back and forth while reciting line)

And the little puppy went woof, woof, woof all the way home.(Now close up fingers to make a fist and show your thumb and move it up and down and you move you hand like its running home.

Directions: Print out today's teaching picture of the puppy and cover with clear contact paper or clear packaging tape and tape it to the wall and show the children the puppy picture and say the word "puppy" as you point to the picture, leave the picture taped to the wall so the children can view him throughout the day.

Print outs: Do not give the toddlers the print outs, unless they have been completely covered with clear packaging tape or clear contact paper to make them durable and if they start to wear, replace them. And any print outs that are "too small and pose a choking hazard" shouldn't be given to the toddlers.

Songs/Finger Rhymes: How Much Is That Doggy In The Window?
Traditional Song

How much is that doggy in the window? Woof, woof. (Hold up print out or stuffed animal puppy and bark twice)

The one that just barked at me.(Point at puppy)

How much is that doggy in the window? Woof, woof.(point to puppy and then bark twice)

I do hope that doggy is for sale.(Point to self then to puppy)

Please note: Hold up today’s picture of the puppy as you sing the song above.

Group Activity: My Doggy Likes Bones

You will need:

6 Small Dog Bones File
Clear Contact Paper
Empty Dog Bones Box

Print out the dog bones, cut them out and cover them with clear contact paper or packing tape to make them durable.

Give each child an empty dog bone box, if you don't have enough dog bone boxes to go around then give each child a small box like a rice box, macaroni and cheese box, cracker box, cookie box

Give each of the children two or three dog bone pictures and and a dog bone box and show them how to open the box and drop the dog bones in and then how to close the top of the box and then how to open up the box and dump out the dog bones and put them back.

Show them how to dump out the dog bones and pretend to feed them to their puppies.

Teacher should sit down with the children and "play too" this is how the toddlers learn, is by watching and copying, talk to the children about what you're doing, such as "look at me I can put the dog bones into my dog bone box, this is fun!" "Oh look at Claire she is feeding her puppy the dog bone. Jillian can you pour your dog bones out of the box?

Safety Note: Make sure all the materials they are using are too large to chock on, always check with a choke tube, most items should be at least 1 inch wide by 2 inches long.

Let the toddlers play with materials under supervision and when this activity is done put all the materials away.

Art/Sensory Activity: Yellow Picture

You will need:

Yellow Picture
Yellow Paint (Paint recipe is in lesson plans – when purchased)
Card stock paper (One sheet per child)
Toddler Safe Paint Brushes
Paint cups
Tape

Give the children a large sheet of card stock paper and have the children paint with the color "Yellow".

Toddlers 12 – 15 Months: Offer the toddlers some paint and a brush, don't expect them to "paint a picture" they will play in the paint, that is fine, this activity is more about them having a fun "sensory activity" then actually making a picture, at this age it is more about the "process" than the product.

Please Note: Toddlers need a lot of sensory activities at this age. They learn best by their senses "touching, tasting, seeing, hearing and smelling".

Toddlers 16 – 18 Months: Some toddlers at this age are getting ready to actually "paint on the paper" but they need to learn from "you" the teacher, by painting with them, they learn by watching and coping, so please paint with them so they can see what they are supposed to be doing, if they are having more fun just finger painting and playing in the paint, then please just let them have a great time experimenting with the paint and feeling the "squishy feel" against their fingers, let them have fun, at this age its more about the "process" than actually making a "picture".

Directions: Have the children paint with yellow paint on paper. See paint recipe below to make some yellow paint. If you have toddlers that put the paint brush into their mouths you may want to have them finger paint instead. You should provide the toddlers with toddler safe brushes; the kind that is short and chubby works best for toddlers to paint with. Provide them with a small container of paint and a brush, if they are having a hard time then just put a glob of paint in the middle of their picture and show them how to take the brush and swish it through the paint or how to finger paint in the paint. Make sure you tape their paper down. As soon as they are done painting put the paint and the picture out of reach. Make sure children are wearing paint shirts and roll up their sleeves.

Please Note: You may need to tape their paper to the table, as young toddlers do not know how to hold their paper down when coloring, gluing, and painting, etc.

Taking Art Pictures Home: Make sure parents know that the art pictures that are being sent home are not toys; they are to be hung up as decorations or put away as memories not given to the children to play with as they could choke on the small pieces of material if not being supervised.

Play Time: Throw A Stick To The Puppy

You will need:

Paper Towel Rolls or Toilet Paper Rolls
Clear Packaging Tape
Sturdy Basket

Directions: You will need to cover the toilet paper rolls completely with clear packaging tape this will make them durable, make sure the toilet paper roll is completely covered with the packaging tape; it will make them very sturdy, and repeat until you have at least two or three toilet paper or paper towel rolls "sticks" per child.

Activity: Have children toss paper towel rolls or toilet paper rolls "pretend sticks" into a sturdy basket or small sturdy box, place a stuffed animal "puppy" beside or behind the basket and they can pretend they are tossing the sticks to the puppy.

Safety Note: When they tire of this activity put the egg carton and toilet paper rolls away.

Learning Activity: Sort The Balls

You will need:

6 Muffin Cup Pans
Tennis Balls

Directions: Tell the children that dogs like to play with balls. Show them the tennis balls and tell them this is a ball and then tell them the color of the ball. Provide each of the children with a 6 cup muffin pan and some tennis balls. Show them how they can place the balls into the cup holders of the muffin pan.

Activity: Provide each child with a six cup muffin tin and some tennis balls or balls that will fit inside the each muffin cup holder. Show the children how to match up one ball to one of the muffin cup holders. This math activity is teaching them one to one correspondence.

Teacher should sit down on the floor with the children and show them how to put one item into each of the muffin cup holders and encourages them to copy her. Teacher should talk to the children as they are playing with the materials and talk to them about what they are doing such as "putting in" and "taking out", the word "ball", to help them to learn some new words.

Safety Note: Supervise the children at all times with the materials. Make sure the balls you are using are not too small as to pose a choking hazard. Put all the materials away after this activity.

Nursery Rhymes/Songs: This Old Man
Traditional Song

This old man he played one (hold up one finger)

He played nick knack on my thumb, (show your thumb)

With a nick knack patty whack give a dog a bone, (clap hands softly then show a dog bone)

This old man came rolling home. (Roll your arms around each like to represent rolling)

Please Note: Young toddlers enjoy being read to and thrive and learn from listening to stories, songs, poetry and nursery rhymes. So please read and sing a lot to the children in your care!

Nursery Rhymes: I'm A Little Teapot
Traditional Song

I'm a little teapot short and stout,

Here is my handle (place one hand on hip)

Here is my spout (hold opposite arm straight out)

When I see the teacups here me shout,

Tip me over and pour me out. (Lean over)

Please Note: Young toddlers enjoy being read to and thrive and learn from listening to stories, songs, poetry and nursery rhymes. So please read and sing a lot to the children in your care!

Younger Toddler Curriculum Program

Our new younger toddler curriculum for children ages 12 to 18 months. We have added a lot of "hands on" fun activities that involve some "Heuristic Play Materials" such as water bottles, metal cans, metal or plastic covers, egg cartons, hair rollers, shower curtain rings, napkin holders and other every day materials.

What is heuristic play? Heuristic comes from a Greek word eurisko "meaning to discover", heuristic play was developed about 30 years ago by Educational Psychologists, Elinor Goldschmeid. Heuristic play offers toddlers different types of textures and items for the toddlers to explore to help them develop their senses; touch, smell, hearing, sight and taste. Some of the items that they would include for the toddlers to play with would be plastic jars, plastic jar covers, wooden spoons, egg cartons, hair rollers, shower curtain rings, napkin holders and many other items.

What About Sharing? Toddlers don't always like to share and the types of items we try to use in our curriculum are mostly items that are very easy to "provide a lot of them" so there are plenty of items to go around and less stress to the toddlers "feeling they need to share". One theory behind heuristic play is that you "provide a lot of materials" and only leave the materials down for a short time while the children are being "observed" playing with the items and the teachers let them play with the materials; however they want, as long as they are not hurting themselves or anyone else. We decided to use some of these "types of items" in our curriculum and to turn them into "learning activities" this way they are playing with the items and learning with them too! In our toddler curriculum we have tried to incorporate some heuristic play items with a touch of Montessori ideas and some preschool themes (changed for toddlers) to make our "hands on learning curriculum."

What Are Sensory Activities We have tried to provide a lot of sensory activities which include touching different textures such as fake fur, velour, corduroy, felt, and other types of textures along with handling different types of items such as metal cans (no sharp edges), jar covers, hair rollers, and many other items along with some water play, sand play, plus some glue and paint activities, we have included glue and paint recipes which are basically just water and flour, that way if the children put the glue or paint, that you make, into their mouths, which they will, it’s a safer alternative than them putting "real glue and paint" in their mouths, with all the chemicals in it.

Learning Through Play As you probably know a lot of "Toddler Curriculums" are not really suitable for toddlers. Most of the actives are too hard for the toddlers to actually master. We know that not all toddlers can do what every other toddler can do, so we have tried to make our activities as "toddler friendly" as possible for toddlers 12 to 18 months. But you may find some of the learning activities can’t be mastered by all the toddlers, don't worry, they should still be able to "play with the materials and they are learning through play" toddlers actually learn a lot from playing, through play they can learn a lot of new skills that they will use now and in the future.By using our curriculum they will be exposed to a lot of new ideas, sensory items to touch and lots of songs and rhymes to help to stimulate and encourage the toddlers to explore their environment.

Hand On Learning Program Our toddler curriculum was designed to introduce toddlers to a variety of play materials where they can learn and grow and discover the world around them. We try to provide the toddlers in our care with a fun activity based "hands on learning program" where the younger toddlers will learn by using their "five senses" by seeing pictures, by handling the learning materials, hearing songs and stories and the older toddlers will actually start learning a few basic shapes and colors through the songs, rhymes and stories and hands on learning activities that also include simple crafts such as coloring with chunky crayons or side walk chalk, painting and using glue with our home made paint and glue recipes which is basically flour and water so if they "taste it" and they will, it won't hurt them.

Hands On Activities Our new younger toddler curriculum has a group time, art/sensory time, play time,learning time along withe some cute songs and rhymes to capture the toddlers attention plus help them to learn, they can learn a lot through our toddler program. These activities are not only to entertain the children but to help them learn through sensory play and lots of fun "hands on" activities.

Enjoy the activities with your group. We have worked very hard on getting the curriculum put together. We hope you enjoy the activities with your toddlers. We hope your toddler group has as much fun with these activities as our toddlers do.
