    Special Activities


    Different kinds of balls are used for different sports.

    The Ball Bounced by Nancy Tafuri

    "Ten Little Balls"

    We will graph our favorite balls and make a ball collage using glue sticks.


    There are many different types of balls. Balls can feel and look different.

    "Who Has the Ball?"

    We will make a list of types of balls and put a variety of balls in the water table to see if they sink or float.


    Balls can be used for exercise.

    Balls can be used for fun and games.

    Let's Play Ball by Marty Allen
    "Take Me Out to the Ballgame"  


    We will go to the REC to kick balls, throw basketballs into hoops, and do some bowling.



    Balls come in many different sizes.

    Balls by Melanie Davis Jones
    "Ten Little Balls"

    We will explore a variety of balls and see which tubes they fit in.

    Changes to the Environment

    The dramatic play area will feature a locker room.  For art we will roll balls in paint and we will use magnetic wands to find magnet balls in the rice table for sensory play.  We'll build ramps to roll balls down in the construction area and we'll use tongs to sort mini koosh balls for small motor play.  For large motor play we will use the parachute with small balls.

    Special Notes

    Dawn and Angela's Groups will be together this week.
