This last week we did so many fun Learning Activities with Experience Early Learning Curriculum . Our Theme this month is Ice Castle and today I am sharing some of the Activities we did. 
I am so thankful for the opportunity to use  Experience Early Learning Curriculum with my students and to share our experiences on my blog. 
In exchange for my unbiased and honest reviews Experience Early Learning has provided me with the curriculum free of charge.
I have used Experience Early Learning Curriculum in my Classroom since 2017. This Curriculum has been a True Blessing for me and my students ❤️

 The Arctic Fox  
This week as we continued our theme Ice Castle, we learned about another Tundra Animal.

We learned about the Arctic Fox.



We first discussed the color of the Arctic Fox’s fur. How that the fur is a  different color  than that of a fox in the forest. I then gave each child a cotton ball and we discussed how the fur of a Arctic Fox is white like the cotton ball and it would be hard to see the fox in the snow. They placed their cotton ball on a white piece of paper. I explained to them how a fox uses camouflage to hide from predators.

For Creative Art the children made Arctic Fox Puppets .



They enjoyed making their own Arctic Fox puppets to take home and play with.


They enjoyed gluing on the cotton balls.



What Does the Arctic Fox See?
Concepts in Print/Writing 



 We read our books together “What Does Arctic Fox See?”






We talked about animals he may see and where he lives. They then added their own drawing of what he sees.

Table Top Math
Foxes & Berries

With this fun game the children took turns rolling the die. They then counted out that amount of berries. With the last step they added the berries to their fox’s den. Then their friend had a turn. 🦊 ❤️

This week in Pre-K we learned about Tundra Animals
and today I am sharing some learning activities we did while learning about Polar Bears. 

All About Polar Bears 


  
Some things we learned about Polar Bears:
Polar Bears have thick skin, so they don’t get cold.
Polar Bears can grow very large.
Polar Bears eat fish and seals.
Polar Bears live in the Northern Hemisphere.







Polar Bear Feelings 
This activity helps children consider the feelings of others.
How do you think a polar bear feels when they catch a fish?
How do you think a polar bear feels when the ice in his Arctic Home is melting?
For this activity I rolled the pocket cube and the children crawled like a polar bear with the rolled emotion.










Making Polar Bear Masks 


The children absolutely loved making their Polar Bear 
Masks and the masks were just adorable. 
They were excited to take a group picture together 
with the masks.They wanted to hide their faces then show their faces.






Arctic Stories - Story Retelling 



Last week the children enjoyed story time and heard the wonderful story Penry’s Great Adventure. This story book along with the story pieces was included in the curriculum.
This week I set the book & story pieces out on the table for the children to use to retell the story to each other. They also could choose to make up their own stories.

Due to the Holidays and Quarantine Situations  I am now posting our experiences in the classroom with the Ice Castle Curriculum .

This week upon returning from Christmas Break we started with some of the activities from week one.


We discussed the change of the season over Christmas 
Break and what happens in the Winter Time.
I told the children there was a chance of snow ❄️ during the weekend and I wanted to hear all their stories if we got snow. We got snow today!!!! ⛄️
I am so excited for the children and me too! Lol!
On Tuesday I will be excited to hear all about their experiences in the snow. ❤️
Snowman Names
Last Thursday the children made their Snowman Names.


They turned out adorable and they couldn’t wait to show their parents.


They glued on the number of circles needed for their name and then traced their names.


They decorated the faces with button eyes , a carrot nose and mouth.

This is such a great activity for name recognition, writing practice , counting and spatial awareness.All important skills for Kindergarten Readiness.


Table Top Literacy
Snowman Tops & Bottoms




With this activity the children enjoyed making their own snowman combinations. They could look at the sample cards or create their own Snowman Creations.



After Coming back from the Weekend Snow the Children were so excited to share with everyone .
They were Overjoyed to Share Their Experiences of Building a Snowman and Having Snowball Fights.
They discussed who they built their snowman with and how big he was. They talked about how Cold it was outside and what they wore. 
I was so happy that all the children got to experience the snow because it is so rare where we live and it was such a delight and blessing! It was such gift during these times. ❤️

I am sharing a cute little Snowman ⛄️ Song Used at Closing Time with the Curriculum.
