Mouse Count & Brown Bear, Brown Bear What Do You See?

~ @28 Months ~

PicMonkey Collage
We got lots of great books from the library and Sweet Butterfly loved them.  Hence, we had put our Letter of the Week on hold.  Tot School had been focusing on storybook activities.  This week, we did activities surrounding 2 books.  ‘Mouse Count’ and ‘Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?”.  The latter was a book introduced in school.  I got really busy after Sweet Butterfly went to bed at night.  Didn’t want to miss a great teaching opportunity since she had developed an interest on both books.  As usual, the file folder games were made to ‘grow’ with her.  So, some activities were mainly for exposure.

Supplies:

  1. File Folder ($0.20 at Clementi Bookstore.)
  2. Glue
  3. Markers
  4. Envelopes
  5. Magnetic tapes (Popular. You can get them at Diaso too.)
  6. Printables (HomeschoolShare and 1+1+1=1)
  7. Pocket Chart (GrowingFun)
Direction:
  1. Print the necessary pages
  2. Laminate
  3. Mount everything on the file folder
  4. The playing pieces goes into the envelope
  5. Decorate the file as you like
Learn:
  1. Counting
  2. Number Recognition.
  3. Puzzle
  4. Sequencing

If you haven’t read “Mouse Count”, I strongly recommend you to read it.  It’s a good way to practice counting.  I usually get Sweet Butterfly to count with me as I read.  The file folder game (HomeschoolShare) is an extension of our counting activity and will come into good use when we return the library book.

We started with the Mouse Count File Folder Game.  She practiced number recognition.

And counting the mouse by placing them on the jar.  I will have to find a real jar next time as she insisted on opening the jar.

On another occasion, we used our sensory box to hide the mice.  No photos as per her request. 

The Brown Bear File Folder Game consists of Counting, Pictures and Words, Heads and Tails and Sequencing activities.  It’s a combination from HomeschoolShare and 1+1+1=1.  For the sequencing game, I mounted the pieces with magnetic tapes.  Placed magnetic tapes on the folder too.

We used our pocket chart for the activities.

The Picture and Words were too hard for her.  We focused mainly on Heads and Tails.

She is now very good at recognizing colours and animals.  So after one round, she insisted on doing wrong matching.  Cheeky!

Conclusion: We need to work harder on our counting an sequencing.
