1) Find the emergency vehicle puzzle pieces in the beans. This activity gave us the opportunity to practice past tense verbs, and the verbal repetition of multi-syllable words. For example: "I found the ambulance". "I put the helicopter in the puzzle". Buy a bunch of kidney beans. They are great for hiding stuff in! Added bonus: they feel smooth and relaxing to put your hands in and out of. You can buy your own big bag of kidney beans at your local grocery store and a plastic bin at the hardware store or local Target/WalMart. That will make you ready for your own sensory table/bucket that can be used for hiding just about anything in for a kid to find. Kids love it!
7) At the door we completed patterns and named colors of different fire hydrants.
