Easter Practical Life Activities

Whole hand transfers and one-to-one correspondence.

Egg carton and a dozen eggs.

Eggs 1 to 1This turned out to be a wonderful activity to provide the kids, with each child approaching the task in a way they were comfortable with.
Eggs 1 to 1 Strawberry double
Strawberry transferred each egg into the egg carton and then matched the colours.

Eggs 1 to 1 Ooffa 4
Ooffa was content to transfer each egg to the egg carton.

Chook worked on his 1:1 correspondence, although he has no idea we’re working on early math concepts!

We also named the colours as each egg was transferred to the egg carton.

One-to-one correspondence is explained in our Hidden Math Learning with Buttons post.

Ooffa’s exploration style at the moment! Tipping and refilling…only to tip it all out again! I decided to give him his own tub to explore, so he wasn’t interrupting the flow of Chook and Strawberries explorations.

I love sensory tubs as an opportunity for children to explore materials. It is so important that children be given time to just explore and play with materials before a focused activity is expected. I believe this creates wonderful brain connections and successful learning!
