Lesson Plan for Week of February 2, 2009 2 Year Olds

Sensory Table: Snow, which later had paint added by a creative child

Gooey: Clean mud on trays (it was in the sensory table for one day last week)

Easel: Puffy paint on black paper with chubby brushes

Art/Manipulatives: Tempera cakes with water added directly to the cakes already, chubby brushes, large pieces of light blue paper

We took advantage of the snow outside to bring some inside. We started with shovels and the like in the snow. By the end of the morning we had large plastic animals, some trucks and bulldozers, and at one point someone put a baby doll on top of a snow hill. When the first child came in I asked him if he's like me to add color to the snow. He said yes. Since I was thinking liquid watercolor I headed for the cabinet in the room where we keep it. He, having never seen a tempera cake before in his life, loaded up a brush with color and proceeded to paint the snow. It looked beautiful.
