This week Spartacus’ preschool class had been scheduled for a field trip to a puppet show at the library. Obviously the libraries are all now closed, and he was super bummed to miss out. SO we made our own puppet theater!
We told the story of the Good Samaritan for Jesus time. The sad set-upon Jewish traveler was played by a puppy. The role of the Good Samaritan was played exquisitely by Olaf. Good times were had by all.
How to do at home? Put two dining room chairs together. Cover with two sheets or blankets. Enjoy. My kids did.
I haven’t had a chance to go through all the free resources floating around the internet for isolated kids, but my mother-in-laws has screened and forwarded some good ones for me. Yesterday we tried an indoor scavenger hunt she texted me.
[I don’t know where she found these images, so I cannot give credit. Sorry! A quick Google will find LOTS of examples though]
First, we wrote our list on our easel. Then I sent Spartacus off to fulfill his quest. This took up a solid ten minutes. Little Miss was not interested…
I Spy: Alphabet
After our first scavenger hunt, we did an Alphabet I Spy. Spartacus wrote the whole alphabet down, and we came up with an I Spy list for almost every letter (at least until I lost his attention). S is for Spiderman. D is for Dinosaur. M is for motorcycle. P is for Picnic Basket.
Thus ended our academic achievement of Day 4, and our first work week from home.
