I am really working with Alex on his animal sounds. He is coming along so nicely with his speech, and his therapist recommends doing as much animal sounds as possible. So I figured it would be a good idea to plan our activities around animals.
I got this idea from The Mailbox Weekly preschool themes. I modified it, I think it calls for using mud, but we just used paint instead.
I printed off a pig (I just Google imaged pig coloring page). And had the boys color them. Then we cut them out and glued them onto construction paper. Then they painted with brown paint. In order to make a dirty pig.
Some of the things I talked to Alligator about as we did the project:
1. That he is coloring a pig and the pig says oink.
2. As he was coloring I said color the eyes, color the tail…
3. Did the same as number 2 put with the mud.
I thought they turned out rather cute.
