Start off your day with your daily routine. Daily routines should consist of the same things everyday. See what I mentioned in my first lesson plan. For the next few weeks we will be talking about Christmas, ask your child what their favorite part of Christmas is?
Visual Arts: Make your own ornaments. You will need a Christmas shaped cookie cutters, card board; red, green and/or white washable paint, and a paint brush. First trace your Christmas cookie cutter onto the card board (if your child is older they can help you with this). Then cut the shapes out of the card board (the parents should do this). Have your child use their paint brush and paint the ornaments with the washable paint. Then add string and have your child put it on your tree when it dries. This might be a good gift for your child to make for a family member. Add a picture of them on the front with the year, and attach string for hanging the ornament on their tree. You can also add a message on the back of the ornament.
Science: Make an ornament. You will need, a paper plate, cut out small shapes, glue and crayons. First cut a circle out of a paper plate, and cut out small shapes out of construction paper. Have your child color the plate, then put glue on your ornament and glue on the shapes you cut out. Cut out a medium sized square and put it on top with string. (You can make the ornament small or big.)
Math: Making a paper wreath. You will need, a paper plate with the middle cut out of it, green washable paint, a paint brush, red construction paper, scissors and glue. First cut the middle out of the paper plate, then give your child green washable paint and a paint brush, have them paint the paper plate green. While their painting, draw and cut out a bow from the red construction paper. (If your child is older they can cut out the bow, just keep an eye on them with the scissors). When the paper plate is green, put it on the side and let it dry, while the plate is drying have your child paint or color the bow. When everything is dry you can glue the bow to the bottom of the plate. When the plate is dry, have your child rip the rest of the red construction paper into small pieces and put it on your wreath as decorations. Your child can count the decorations as they put it on.
