Mrs. Kelly’s FACS students were given an opportunity in their child development unit to see preschoolers learn. She separated them into seven groups. Each group was then assigned a topic that corresponded with the things they were learning about; the activity they planned was based on that topic. The greeting group made bunny shaped name tags. The large motor group’s activity was a bean bag toss. The small motor group let the preschoolers play with Play Dough. The snack group made little crabs with crackers, pretzel sticks, and cheese. The reading group had the kids sit down and listen to “If you Bring a Pig to a Party” and “Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What do you see?” The math and science group enjoyed helping the preschoolers make oblik. The art group set up pictures of flowers, bunnies, and cats for them to enjoy painting. Mrs. Kelly taught the kids the song “Five Little-Speckled Frogs.” The last activity that the preschoolers did before they left was a freeze dance.
