Preschool Theme – Pirates
|Sound and Letter Matching to pirate pictures|
|Digging for buried treasure! This was simply a very large bowl of pinto beans (less messy compared to sand) with jewelry and gold dollars mixed in. The kids took turns finding treasure.|
|We followed a map through the backyard until we found a box of treasure!|
|I cut out the the letters for each child’s name, then each child dug through the letters to spell their name.
After the names were added, we glued feathers to the parrot picture.
|Each child made a pirate mask, complete with a custom hat and crayon beard,|
|Simon loved his mask!|
|This is my favorite running game. I call it “Color Corners.” I tape pieces of colored paper around the room, and then I ask questions like, “Where is the green treasure chest?” The kids go running to find it. They’ll run around for a long time, and I love that they get some energy out before we read stories.|
