"Invitations To Play with Open Ended Loose Parts" (Letters, Chica Chica, Alphabet soup )

Hello Everyone! 


As you know I am working on a theme this year.  I enjoy providing my friends with "Loose Parts" For play and letting them create their own play with  the parts. I do this by providing things that are connected to the theme we are talking about. I don't ever give instructions on how to use the items. I let the children explore the items and engage together. For Instance today I am writing to you about " "Letter" and a few themes that I enjoy using to Teach "Letters". For Alphabet soup, I would set you small letters, Pictures of random items, and Cooking utensils. By Doing this, you encourage many different forms of learning. Language, Math, Science.  I hope you enjoyed these activities, and If there something you might be struggling with? or feeling frustration around while you're creating


Letters- Chica Chica LooseParts



Advice: Using Games and Sensory activities is a great hands on way to encourage children to engage in learning their letters. I have used hands on activities to teach letters and sounds for years. Is there something you might be struggling with? or feeling frustration around while you're creating and engaging at home?  leave me a message and I would love to help in anyway I can.



Some of my favorite activities to do this are:


1) chica Chica Gross Motor Game
2) Alphabet Soup Sensory
3) make your own soup art activity


Questions To ask For Extending Learning and Engagement:
1) What Kinds of Things would you put in soup?
2) how do you make soup?
3) what is your favorite soup?
(document your child's answers for a cute keepsake or gift)



and engaging at home?  leave me a message and I would love to help in anyway I can. Leave me a comment and I will answer all your questions.
