Stacking Leprechauns


Ask your child to guess how many leprechauns tall he/she is, then stack the blocks to see if he/she is right. Measure yourself as well.
This helps your child learn the math skill of nonstandard measurement.

*To do the preschool activity, simply ask for the activity at the Early Learning Center desk. When you have completed the activity, return it to the desk and you will receive a sticker.


Apilamiento de Duendes

Pregúntale a su niño(a) cuántos duendes tomarían para alcanzar la estatura de su niño(a), entonces apila los bloques para ver si él/ella están correctos. Midase usted también.

Ésto ayuda a su niño a aprender la habilidad 
 matemática de la medición no estándar.

*Para hacer la actividad preecolar de STEAM, simplemente pide la actividad en en escritorio del Early Learning Center (Centro de Aprendizaje Temprano). Cuando hayas completado la actividad, devuelve la actividad al escritorio y recibirás una calcomanía.

New Preschool STEAM Activity: Sleigh Bells Ring?



Sleigh Bells Ring? 


     Hold a jingle bell in one hand and ring it. Then pick up the bell with a magnet and shake it. Is there a sound? The magnet attracts the ball inside as well as the bell. 

This helps your child learn engineering (how magnets work) and physics
(magnetic forces).

*To do the preschool activity, simply ask for the activity at the Early Learning Center desk. When you have completed the activity, return it to the desk and you will receive a sticker. 

 

¿Hacer Anillo de las Campanas del Trineo?
 

Mantenga un cascabel en un mano y suenelo. Luego recoger el cascabel con un imán y agitar. ¿Hay un sonido? El imán atrae a la pelota en el interior, así como el cascabel.



Ésto ayuda a su niño a aprender ingeniería (cómo funcionan los imanes) y física (fuerzas magnéticas)



*Para hacer la actividad preecolar de STEAM, simplemente pide la actividad en en escritorio del Early Learning Center (Centro de Aprendizaje Temprano). Cuando hayas completado la actividad, devuelve la actividad al escritorio y recibirás una calcomanía.
