Teaching Thoughts

These are a few bonus ideas- keep scrolling for more!

  • Use the glasses for extra fun- they are included in The Red Headed Hostess class packet.
  • Put out different colored pieces of construction paper on the floor and have the children do some hard moves and some easy moves from one square to another. For example, one might be, "Twirl to a red square" while another may be, "Tip toe with one eye covered to a circle." It would be a great adaptation for Enrichment Activity 2.
