This March, duck-shaped manipulatives are included in the Experience Preschool kit. Here are six+ ways to play with these colorful ducks:
Math Story Cards
Preschoolers practice critical thinking, listening, and math skills when they listen to math story problems and use the duck manipulatives to solve them. Math Story Cards are included in the Pond Life Experience Preschool kit.
Building Letters Loose Parts
Using the Loose Letter Cards, nature items such as sticks and the duck manipulatives, preschoolers for letters either using the cards as a template or separately on the table.
Floating Ducks Counting
Try using the duck manipulatives to float ducks on small paper plates in a water sensory bin. Roll a die and count the number of ducks to float on the paper plate “lily pads”.
Ducks in Muck Sensory Play
Create a fun sensory play experience by combining cornstarch, water and a brown paint (liquid water color or tempera). Preschoolers will love playing with “ducks in the muck!”
Count and Create Duck Families
Duck family ponds are included in the March Experience Preschool kit for preschoolers to match ducks to in this game that focuses on number sense and one-to-one correspondence. Preschoolers roll the die and count out ducks to add to the duck family ponds.
Create an sensory center with playdough, duck manipulatives, frogs, snakes, nature items and more for preschoolers to create their own ponds.
