(I repeated this program for Toddler Time, but used Bear in a Square by Stella Blackstone instead)
“Shape On Their Head” (modified from Laurie Berkner’s “Pig On Her Head”)
I gave each child a shape, and then sang a verse with their first name and the shape they were holding on their head.
1. Disappearing Shapes – This idea came from Gift of Curiosity. I cut coffee filters in half then drew shapes on them with washable markers. Each child had a filter, plate, small cup of water, and a pipette (to squirt the shapes into submission).
2. Shape Hopscotch – I used painter’s tape to put shapes on the floor for hopscotch. A for effort, but it didn’t work out very well. It was hard to keep any semblance of order.
