Example from Fall Theme –
The children worked together to make a fall tissue paper tree. Each child had a pile of colored tissue paper and we had just one tree branch. The friend with the branch had to use his/her eyes to look at another friend at the table and if that friend was using his/her eyes to “think of the person with the branch” (look at them) the branch was passed. It was then that friends turn to add a colored piece of tissue. This was a fun way to practice using our eyes for social referencing!
Example from Thanksgiving –
Hand Print Turkeys. First, the children were paired with a partner. They took turns painting their partner’s hand to make a print and then they had a turn putting their own hand in the paint to make a print. The papers then traveled around the table to other classmates so each friend had their hand print, as well as, their classmate’s hand prints to create their own turkey farm. With different partners, they decided which eyes, beaks and wattle to add. They came out so colorful and creative!!!
