Have a group of children sit on the floor in a circle. Use a ball of yarn to spin a story web. The teacher starts the story, hold on to the end of the yarn and throw the ball to another child to continue the story. When everyone has had a turn you’ve spun a web. This works well with fours and fives.
KID COCOONS Children can wrap each other in toilet paper (excluding their head) so they can feel what it would be like to be a caterpillar in a cocoon. Have them close their eyes and imagine that they are about to become butterflies. Have them stretch their “wings” and tear through the toilet paper cocoons.
Pattern-pillers. Practice and learn patterns by using pattern-pillers. Use paper, glue, different colored pompoms, and if you like google eyes. Have the children create patterns using the different colors pompoms in making their pattern-piller.
