Back to the ‘heater’ sound. Put your hand in front of your mouth and exhale air to feel the heat.

 Don’t forget your Surprise Bag! Suggestions: hat, hand, heart, hair, helicopter,horse, hand, hay, hanger, happy face . There are many more ideas, be creative!

Concepts:

  • Hard/soft: Gather 3 of each hard and soft things. Talk about their characteristics (e.g., white, round, soft) Set 2 out items in front of your preschooler. Describe one and let them guess which one. Now let them do the describing and you guess
  • Happy/sad:Trace your hands.       Draw a happy face on one and a sad face on the other. Tell a short story as to why the hand is happy (Happy hand was at the store where he got to push a grocery cart. That made him happy) Now have your child tell why sad hand is sad, or visa versa.
  • Hot/cold: Name items and have child tell you if they are hot or cold (spaghetti, ice cream, popsicle, hot chocolate, fire)
  • High/low: Fill 6 glasses with decreasing amounts of water so that when you tap the rim with a spoon, you hear high and low sounds.
  • Whole/half: Cut fruit in half, talk about what’s inside
  • Heavy/light: feather, Kleenex, cotton ball, rock, heavy book,

  • Make hearts with a half piece of folded paper
  • Make Hot chocolate and cold chocolate milk. Have a taste test and see which each person in your house likes best. Chart the results.
  • Use your hands to clap out a sequence and have your child copy the # of times you clapped. Now you copy them.

Read, read, and read with your child!
