My name is Teacher Rachel and this is my first class at Outschool. I love preschool and I love telling stories. Stories can really help kids learn new things. In this class, we will meet the three little pigs and find out that they have a problem, they want to build houses for themselves. Each pig wants their house to be a different shape and building material. The first pig loves the color yellow. He wants to build a house that is a circle and use straw. He loves to sing and...
Students will learn colors - yellow, green, red. Shapes - circle, triangle, square. The problem - How can I build a safe house? How can I stay safe? And some simple craft skills. Kids can sing and dance together and show off their houses.
This class will have no homework, but parents can tell the story again and sing the songs with the kids. You might even want to try to build one of the houses you saw in class.
We will be making 3 houses for the pigs: House 1 = yellow circle of straw = Ideas: TP tube, cover in yellow straw or slivers of yellow construction paper. You could make a tube of yellow construction paper and draw "straw" on the tube before gluing or taping it into place. For advanced learners, collect dried grass or straw to glue onto the house, and you can even add windows and doors and maybe a bit of glitter. House 2 = green and brown triangle of twigs = create a triangle "lean to/ tent" out of green or brown construction paper, or cut out part of a cereal or cracker box. Look outside for evergreen trees and clip some of the tips (cedar and pine are great), you can also use large leaves from Oak or similar trees if they are still green. You can cover your box with green construction paper or just glue your pieces of leaves and twigs into place. Again, Advanced learners can add more details to their houses. House 3 = red square of bricks = the easiest will be bringing a pile of red legos, but students can also draw bricks on red construction paper and glue this to a saltine cracker box (or similar). Advanced Learners can add more details. Before class, make three pig puppets out of craft sticks, paper bags, or bring some toys to class. Students may also paint pictures, use play dough or clay, or other mediums that parents choose.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
