Star and Chest Mobiles
Make some stencils in the shape of a star and a treasure chest and place them in the learning center, along with oak tag, straws, string, tape and markers.
The shapes should be large enough for children to write a word on them. Next, brainstorm some words that start or end with st.
List them on chart paper in two columns under the heads star and chest.
Then explain to children that they can write these words on the correct shapes and make star or chest mobiles.
You may want to have a completed mobile in the learning center to serve as a model.
