A couple weeks ago we did a Goodnight Moon unit. Goodnight Moon is included as a book in Sonlight P3/4 as well as Before Five in a Row. We combined activities from several different sites (see links at bottom of post).
I made the kids a Goodnight Moon themed sensory bin. I tried to get a good picture of what was inside, but all the pictures were blurry. The green "room" had black beans, silver stars, white "moon" (pom poms), three bears from our counting bears, a cow, red "balloons" (pom poms), and a cat. Both Jonathan and Grace had a lot of fun pouring, spooning, transferring the beans back and forth.
We read Goodnight Moon several times as well as:
* Kitten's First Full Moon by Kevin Henkes
* Papa, Please Get the Moon for Me by Eric Carle
* The Three Bears illustrated by Byron Barton
All of the books were a hit with Jonathan. Grace liked Goodnight Moon the best, but also sat through the Three Bears.
We talked about balloons and reviewed colors, using a printable from Homeschool share. We also had fun playing volleyball with a red balloon. (And we listened to Nena's 99 Luftballoons while we played!)
We practiced beginning sounds, which he aced!
And worked on categorizing things into single or pair:
We counted stars:
Played with our shape clock:
And worked on putting mittens and socks on a clothesline for some fine motor work:
We had a lot of fun with this unit-- be sure to check out these wonderful resources!
