W is for where is your eyes, ears and mouth and nose?A preschool and baby lesson about 5 senses.

W is for Western.This week we are doing The 5 senses Western style.So saddle up and mosey on to our town.Watch out for 6 letter bandits!

Scriptures:Wanted by God
37Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

 38 This is the first and great commandment.

 39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

We made a wanted sign.It said wanted by God.Reward:eternal life.We talked about what God wants us to do.

Letter: W
Nursery Rhyme: Horsey horsey on your way.Babies can bounce on your knees like they are riding a horse.

Horsey horsey on your way
We've done the journey many a day
Your tail goes swish and the wheels go round(Circle your knee or move side to side)
Giddy up we're homeward bound.

Music and movement-Howdy!Teach them to say hi like a cowboy.Then have them give you a great big smile.We have a huge horse so I had him ride it.

shining smiles preschool lesson shows how to take care of our teeth.
Have the children sing along with you to the tune "Row, Row, Row Your Boat":

Brush, brush, brush your teeth, brush them every day.
Keep them bright, make them shine, clean the plaque away.

Song:If your happy and you know it
Clap your hands,stomp your feet,say yee-haw,shoot your guns,blink your eyes,stick out your tongue,wiggle your ears

flossing with play d'oh and a block

Have kids hold fingers in the air uno,dos,tres and 123.
Lasso a horse and say yee-haw and giddy up!

Eyes-What color are your eyes,mine and the babies?
Have a staring contest.Who will laugh first?

How do we take care of our eyes?We don't scratch or rub them.We don't point things t peoples eyes or throw dirt or sand.We don't spray anything in our eyes.

They must use their eyes to focus and shoot the  letter bandits with the dart guns and say which letter it is.They loved to watch the letters fall!

For baby: Roll a ball.Cover one eye then the other,then both.We need both our eyes. I try to find special activities to do with the baby,usually during free time.This week we are doing flash cards from teach my baby.You show them the card and point to eyes,nose etc....then show them in the mirror where there eyes,nose is.

Here is a great article about nesting blocks.They are good for hand eye coordination and comparing sizes.They create spacial awareness.

Bye and thanks for visiting us.We are going to rustle up some grub.yum yum!
