Paper Plate Turtle!

Paper Plate Turtles!
Day 1 of our Week - Our theme this week is Ponds! Our letter of the week is the letter C, and the numbers of the week are 7 and 8.
Learning Activities - I have been using the workbook Everything for Early Learning Preschool workbook. (I purchased it at Wal-Mart).
Today's activities
1. The number 8 - number recognition, counting objects, following directions
2. The concept longest - Recognition and following directions
3. The letter C, c - Writing the letter C, c.
4. Shape - triangle - Tracing and recognizing.
I always do letter/number reviews and they always write their names.
Connor and Lauren with their Turtles
Project - Paper Plate Turtles. I turned a green, paper, salad plate inside out. I traced and cut out 4 oval shaped legs, a larger oval shape head, and a triangle tail on brown card stock. Connor and Lauren helped me staple the legs, head and tail onto their green plates. Then, they glued large googly eyes onto the oval head. As a finishing touch they decorated the turtle's shell with green buttons, yellow, green, and white tri-beads. Materials Needed - green, paper, salad plate, (or paper plate that can be painted green), brown card stock, stapler, googly eyes, craft glue, tri-beads, buttons or other decorations for the shell.
