This preschool art is a wonderful way to learn the letter W- W is for Wagon Art and Craft Activity!
We have one little red wagon in our school. And everyone just loves to play with it. Sometimes they put books on it and then they wheel it around the preschool area.
There are also times when they would ask a friend to get on it and then they would push and drag the wagon around.
It’s very nice to have the wagon because it fosters communication between students and friendships are formed as well.
However, it can also be a reason for misunderstandings and fights as some children don’t want to share.
Thus, we came up with a schedule. We decided to do this so everyone gets to have a turn. At the same time, it saves time for us teachers to explain to them to share and take turns every time they complain.
There were still a couple of fights the first few days but it was smooth sailing after that. There’s peace and quiet again during outdoor play.
We noticed something unexpected though. We thought that children will strictly follow the schedule as to who gets to play with the wagon. But that wasn’t the case.
Yes, the children scheduled to play with the wagon gets to play with it. But when their other friends ask nicely if they could play/borrrow the wagon, they let them. They share. No fights.
I guess just the idea of who gets priority is enough for them to play in harmony.
Since all the students are fascinated with the little red wagon, I came up with a cute preschool art. It’s also a fun way to let them have their “own” red wagon.
This alphabet art targets the following learning objectives:
- Master the letter W through a visual cue (image of a wagon) and an auditory cue (beginning sound of the word wagon)
- Develop fine motor skills
- Foster imagination and creativity
W is for Wagon Art and Craft
- red art paper
- Black art paper
- Draw and cut an outline of the letter W on a red art paper.
- Cut out the handle on a black art paper
- Glue the pieces together.
Develop children’s problem solving skills by not fixing problems for them right away. Offer suggestions as needed and let them come up with a solution on their own.
