On this blog, I will share my ideas for an at-home preschool that I do with my children, ideas for surviving motherhood, library story time ideas, ideas for my various LDS callings, Family Home Evening ideas, and whatever other random ideas that I have. I borrow ideas from the world of great minds and will try to give credit as much as possible. Thanks for dropping by!

J is for Jam

Mommy & Me Book Club
Gathering Activity
Puzzles exploration.  I'll have a variety of puzzles out for the kids to play with before we start.

Welcome Song (tune: London Bridges)
Come along and clap with me,
Clap with me, clap with me.
Come along and clap with me,
It’s time for us to start.

Circle Time
The More We Get Together
Sing ABC song.
Count from 1-10 forward and backward.

Book Time
We'll be reading Jamberry during our book time.  I'll be focusing on specific things that tie in with our activities. 

Art Activity
(Fine motor skills activity)
We'll be making a strawberry shaker/streamer to dance with like they do in the book.
We'll be having a variety of berries for snack time.  Each child will be given a berry counting mat so they can practice their counting with hands on manipulation. 

**We also added that we made strawberry freezer jam together. It was super easy and the kids really enjoyed helping to make it (almost as much as they enjoyed helping to eat it). Sam likes to brag to everyone that he knows how to make jam now.
 (Gross motor skills activity)
“Elephants skating on raspberry jam.”  We'll be pretending to ice skate like the elephants in the story through an obstacle course using grocery bags on our feet on the tile.
Good-bye Song (tune: Here We Are Together)
Now we wave good-bye,
Good-bye, good-bye.
Now we wave good-bye,
I’ll see you next time.
 This was a lesson that my friend, Meghann, did last year, but we weren't able to be there that day. So we borrowed. =)
