Lesson 2

ACTIVITIES:

 
Get some butcher paper and trace the children's bodies. Tape the tracings on the wall and let them color the bodies. You may want to save these for later lessons about eyes, ears, etc. The children could add the different body parts to their tracing. As well, you could measure and weigh them and write that on the butcher paper. Then,  let them take home the tracings at the end of the body part lessons.  When we did this, one little boy did not want us to trace him, no matter what we said.  So we had his dad come in for a minute and trace him instead.

GAMES:

 
Elbow to Elbow - The children all dance around while music is playing and you turn the music off and call out a part of body.   For example, elbow to elbow everyone touches their elbow to someone else’s elbow. They can have partners, or if they are young they can just touch their own elbow.  
 Play "Simon Says" using body parts.

 Sunbeam Letter for Lesson 2 by Cynthia Mikesell - The content of this letter comes almost exclusively from the lesson book.  I just changed the language a bit so that it reads as if the child is telling the parent what they have done in class that day.  (Click here to see all letters written by Cynthia)
