Pets Preschool Theme: Feb 16-22

Sam’s Pre-School theme for this week was Pets! We had SO MUCH fun with this. We have a fish, a cat, and a dog, so we only incorporated (for the most part) these types of lessons.


Snack: Puppy Chow – we weren’t able to get to the store for this, but a fun idea nonetheles.

Art: CD Rom fish craft (absolutely excellent – Sam’s fave activity so far!); Toilet paper roll – dog; Coffee filter fish craft – Sam loved holding the blow-dryer himself and we shared this activity with our 8-year-old neighbor. We also added glitter to the body because we didn’t have tin foil.

Reading Skills: Cat Book – make your own; Related activity sheet (these both went over really well!); In The Water-World Poem by Evaleen Stein

Music: Pussycat nursery rhyme

“Pussycat, pussycat, where have you been?
I’ve been to London to visit the Queen.
Pussycat, pussycat, what did you there?
I frightened a little mouse under her chair.”

Pretend Play: Paper bag cat puppet

Gross Motor Skills: We took Annie, our dog, for a walk and brought back a leaf for McQueen (the cat) to play with and a few rocks for Choo Choo Train’s bowl (the fish).

Field Trip: Pet Store! Make sure you bring hand sanitizer for afterwards.

Bible Verse: Isa 65:25: The wolf and the lamb will feed together,
and the lion will eat straw like the ox,
but dust will be the serpent’s food.
They will neither harm nor destroy
on all my holy mountain,”
says the LORD.

*What a fun week! Again, be sure to visit DLTK for they’re amazing ideas. Have any ideas for Pet Week? What are you doing next weel? Want to share your lesson plans with us?
