I love preschool!  The pictures tell the rest of the story…

M&M’s started off the week with a bang! We sorted, made concrete graphs and even tried a few concrete addition problems.  The worksheets came from Learn NC.

More fun M&M activity sheets came from Confessions of a Homeschooler.

Submerging M&M’s in water is a fun color mixing experiment.

Wait several minutes to see the floating m’s!

A marble run is great fun.  (Don’t let your little one put marbles near his mouth!)

Dip marbles in paint and place on a piece of paper that’s nestled in a shoebox. Roll the marbles around for a fun painting experience.

Machine building!

Picking up mini-marshmallows with jumbo tweezers was sticky fun.

Eli needed a little help to make shapes from mini-marshmallows and toothpicks.

Mini-marshmallow prints filled in our M.

Magnet fun! (Just be sure your child never, ever, ever puts magnets in his mouth!)

What attracts a magnet? Eli knows!

Learning the difference between a mountain and a hill.

Both of the above worksheets came from the Giant Science Resource Book.

UNO Moo! was a Christmas gift that Eli has really enjoyed.

Mapping for preschoolers was fun and “feet-on”. He jumped from one continent to the other on our fabric map.  No, he doesn’t know the continents yet – this required lots of direction.

Looking at maps with magnifying glasses didn’t hold his attention. I wonder why? 🙂

We did bunches and bunches of matching games. This comes from Preschool Activities in a Bag.

This matching activity idea also comes from Preschool Activities in a Bag.

Yep, you guessed it – Preschool Activities in a Bag.

The co-op I used to belong to had two Preschool Activities in a Bag exchanges where I loaded up on fun things to do with Eli.  I highly encourage you to take part in one of these fun exchanges!

More matching! These are just some fun little card games I found at the Dollar Tree.

I’m trying to integrate more “book work”.  These worksheets came from First School.
