Younger Toddler April Curriculum Lessons Plans, Hands on Activities

Just want you to know that I LOVE your curriculum. I am a grandmother who cares for a 17 month old little man. Your program has helped to make our days interesting and fun. I've been using the toddler curriculum while waiting for the young toddler version. Although it is a little advanced for him we have adapted and used things that are appropriate. I'm really pleased with the April young toddler month that I just downloaded.

Our Program

This is our new  younger toddler curriculum for children ages 12 to 18 months. We have added a lot of “hands on” fun activities that involve some “Heuristic Play Materials” such as water bottles, metal cans, metal or plastic covers, egg cartons, hair rollers, shower curtain rings, napkin holders and other every day materials.

What is heuristic play? Heuristic comes from a Greek word eurisko “meaning to discover”, heuristic play was developed about 30 years ago by Educational Psychologists, Elinor Goldschmeid. Heuristic play offers toddlers different types of textures and items for the toddlers to explore to help them develop their senses; touch, smell, hearing, sight and taste. Some of the items that they would include for the toddlers to play with would be plastic jars, plastic jar covers, wooden spoons, egg cartons, hair rollers, shower curtain rings, napkin holders and many other items.

Toddlers don’t always like to share and these types of items are very easy to “provide a lot of them” so there are plenty to go around and less stress to the toddlers feeling they need to share. One theory behind heuristic play is that you “provide a lot of materials” and only leave the materials down for a short time while they are being “observed” and let them play with the materials; however they want, as long as they are not hurting themselves or anyone else. We decided to use some of these types of items in our curriculum and to turn them into “learning activities” this way they are playing with the items and learning too. In our toddler curriculum we have tried to incorporate some heuristic play items with a touch of Montessori ideas and some preschool themes (changed for toddlers) to make our “hands on learning curriculum.”

We have tried to provide a lot of sensory activities which include touching different textures such as fake fur, velour, corduroy, felt, and other textures along with handling different types of items such as metal cans (no sharp edges), jar covers, hair rollers, and many other items along with some water play, sand play, plus some glue and paint activities, we have included glue and paint recipes which are basically just water and flour, that way if the children put the glue or paint, that you make,  into their mouths, which they will, it’s a safer alternative than them putting “real glue and paint” in their mouths, with all the chemicals in it.

In our home daycare we provide care for children ages six weeks to six years of age. There are usually twelve children here each day. Our curriculum is based on the activities that we provide to the children in our care.

As you probably know a lot of "Toddler Curriculums" are not really geared for toddlers. Most of the actives are too hard for the toddlers to actually master. We know that not all toddlers can do what every other toddler can do, so we have tried to make our activities as “toddler friendly” as possible for toddlers 12 to 18 months. But you may find some of the learning activities can’t be mastered by all the toddlers, don’t worry, they should still be able to “play with the materials and they are learning through play” toddlers actually learn a lot from playing, through play they can learn a lot of new skills that they will use now and in the future.

Our toddler curriculum was designed to introduce toddlers to a variety of play materials where they can learn and grow and discover the world around them. We try to provide the toddlers in our care with a fun activity based “hands on learning program” where the younger toddlers will learn by using their “five senses” by seeing pictures, by handling the learning materials, hearing songs and stories and the older toddlers will actually start learning a few basic shapes and colors through the songs, rhymes and stories and hands on learning activities that also include simple crafts such as coloring with chunky crayons or side walk chalk, painting and using glue with our home made paint and glue recipes which is basically flour and water so if they "taste it" and they will, it won't hurt them.

Our new younger toddler curriculum has a group time, art/sensory time, play time,learning time along withe some cute songs and rhymes to capture the toddlers attention plus help them to learn, they can learn a lot through our toddler program. These activities are not only to entertain the children but to help them learn through sensory play and lots of fun “hands on” activities.

We have worked very hard on getting the curriculum put together. We hope you enjoy the activities with your toddlers. We hope your toddler group has as much fun with these activities as our toddlers do.

 

Our fun learning program is for toddlers ages 12 - 18 months which will provide the toddlers in your care with a "hands on learning program" that you can use year after year. Our program provides heuristic play materials, a touch of Montessori along with preschool themes (made for toddlers!)

Squirrel Coloring Page

Print out the Printable coloring pages for the toddlers in your group to color. Toddlers like simple pictures. We provide simple pictures for the toddlers to color or paint. We also include a paint recipe that is a safe aternative to "real paint" that the toddlers can paint with that won't hurt them if they "taste it".

Farmer Two Carrots Bunny

Poem Print Outs

Snowman Finger Puppet

Snowman Finger Puppet

Shown above is the snowman finger puppet. This is one of the activities included in the February Curriculum. Also included is a fun finger puppet rhyme that toddlers will hear while using their "New Finger Puppets".

Our lesson plans have easy to follow directions, readily available and inexpensive materials.


Planting Veggies

Shown above is our "Planting Veggies" activity. This activity will help to teach the younger toddlers how to place the bottles in and out of the can, and it makes a simple puzzle for the older toddlers to put the "correct bottle into the correct can". This is such a fun activity for the toddlers, they will learn about veggies through some new songs, rhymes and stories along with doing some fun activites; as shown above.

    Toddler April Lessons Ages 12 – 18 Months © www.adaycare.com Younger Toddler Curriculum One Day Lesson Plans for April Pet Week Teaching Picture: Puppy On the next page you will find the printable page for the puppy and print out today’s picture. Tape the picture to the wall in a location where the toddlers can see it. As you show the picture to children, talk about the picture, tell the children about the picture. Talking to the toddlers is a good way for them to get started on using their own language skills. The more words a toddler hears the more he learns, even if he/she is not talking yet, they are listening and learning and all of a sudden they will be talking. Refer to the language development section below for a few suggestions on things to talk about with toddlers about the picture, the language development will give you suggestion on things to talk about or it will show an activity, rhyme or story and then continue talking to the children about the picture, using your own words. © www.adaycare.com Puppy © www.adaycare.com Keep in Mind: Any and all printed material is not safe for toddlers. So do not give any printouts to the children unless you are supervising them. These are for you to hold up or attach to the wall. Look at your toddlers and in a soothing voice talk about the picture: Music: Soft Rock Play folk music for the children today. Please Note: You can check at your local library and try to borrow some folk music to play for the toddlers, if they do not have folk music, try to select some different types of music to play for the children, such as; blues, classical, country, soft rock, etc. Play the music softly throughout the day in the background and it would be nice to play it quietly during naptime also to help the children settle down to go to sleep and keep them sleeping with a soft back ground noise. © www.adaycare.com Language Development: This Little Puppy Nursery Rhyme This little puppy went to the park This little puppy stayed home This little puppy had a bone And this puppy had none And the little puppy went woof, woof, woof all the way home. Directions: Print out the teaching picture - the puppy picture and cover with clear contact paper or clear packaging tape and then hold it up as you recite the poem above. After you recite the poem; tape the puppy to the wall so the children can view him throughout the day. Print outs: Do not give the toddlers the print outs, unless they have been completely covered with clear packaging tape or clear contact paper to make them durable and if they start to wear, replace them. And any print outs that are “too small and pose a choking hazard” shouldn’t be given to the toddlers. © www.adaycare.com Songs/Finger Rhymes: How Much Is That Doggy In The Window? Traditional Song How much is that doggy in the window? Woof, woof. The one that just barked at me. How much is that doggy in the window? Woof, woof. I do hope that doggy is for sale. Please note: Hold up today’s picture of the puppy as you sing the song above. Group Activity: My Doggy Likes Bones You will need: 6 Small Dog Bones File Clear Contact Paper Empty Dog Bones Box © www.adaycare.com Print out the dog bones file and cover with clear contact paper. Give each child an empty dog bone box, if you don’t have enough dog bone boxes to go around then give each child a small box like a rice box, macaroni and cheese box, cracker box, cookie box Print out the dog bones, cut them out and cover them with clear contact paper or packing tape to make them durable. Give each of the children two or three dog bone pictures and a dog bone box and show them how to open the box and drop the dog bones in and then how to close the top of the box and then how to open up the box and dump out the dog bones and put them back. Show them how to dump out the dog bones and pretend to feed them to their puppies. Teacher should sit down with the children and “play too” this is how the toddlers learn, is by watching and copying, talk to the children about what you’re doing, such as “look at me I can put the dog bones into my dog bone box, this is fun!” “Oh look at Claire she is feeding her puppy the dog bone. Jillian can you pour your dog bones out of the box? Safety Note: Make sure all the materials they are using are too large to chock on, always check with a choke tube, most items should be at least 1 inch wide by 2 inches long. Let the toddlers play with materials under supervision and when this activity is done put all the materials away. Art/Sensory Activity: Yellow Picture You will need: Yellow Paint (See recipe below) Card stock paper (One sheet per child) © www.adaycare.com Toddler Safe Paint Brushes Paint cups Tape Give the children a large sheet of card stock paper and have the children paint with the color “Yellow”. Toddlers 12 – 15 Months: Offer the toddlers some paint and a brush, don’t expect them to “paint a picture” they will play in the paint, that is fine, this activity is more about them having a fun “sensory activity” then actually making a picture, at this age it is more about the “process” than the product. Please Note: Toddlers need a lot of sensory activities at this age. They learn best by their senses “touching, tasting, seeing, hearing and smelling”. Toddlers 16 – 18 Months: Some toddlers at this age are getting ready to actually “paint on the paper” but they need to learn from “you” the teacher, by painting with them, they learn by watching and coping, so please paint with them so they can see what they are supposed to be doing, if they are having more fun just finger painting and playing in the paint, then please just let them have a great time experimenting with the paint and feeling the “squishy feel” against their fingers, let them have fun, at this age its more about the “process” than actually making a “picture”. Directions: Have the children paint with yellow paint on paper. See paint recipe below to make some yellow paint. If you have toddlers that put the paint brush into their mouths you may want to have them finger paint instead. You should provide the toddlers with toddler safe brushes; the kind © www.adaycare.com that is short and chubby works best for toddlers to paint with. Provide them with a small container of paint and a brush, if they are having a hard time then just put a glob of paint in the middle of their picture and show them how to take the brush and swish it through the paint or how to finger paint in the paint. Make sure you tape their paper down. As soon as they are done painting put the paint and the picture out of reach. Make sure children are wearing paint shirts and roll up their sleeves. Please Note: You may need to tape their paper to the table, as young toddlers do not know how to hold their paper down when coloring, gluing, and painting, etc. Taking Art Pictures Home: Make sure parents know that the art pictures that are being sent home are not toys; they are to be hung up as decorations or put away as memories not given to the children to play with as they could choke on the small pieces of material if not being supervised. © www.adaycare.com Play Time: Throw A Stick To The Puppy You will need: Paper Towel Rolls or Toilet Paper Rolls Clear Packaging Tape Sturdy Basket Directions: You will need to cover the toilet paper rolls completely with clear packaging tape this will make them durable, make sure the toilet paper roll is completely covered with the packaging tape; it will make them very sturdy, and repeat until you have at least two or three toilet paper or paper towel rolls “sticks” per child. Activity: Have children toss paper towel rolls or toilet paper rolls (pretend sticks) into a sturdy basket or small sturdy box, place a dog beside or behind the basket and they can pretend they are tossing the sticks to the puppy. Safety Note: When they tire of this activity put the egg carton and toilet paper rolls away. © www.adaycare.com Learning Activity: Sort The Balls You will need: 6 Muffin Cup Pans Tennis Balls Directions: Tell the children that dogs like to play with balls. Show them the tennis balls and tell them this is a ball and then tell them the color of the ball. Provide each of the children with a 6 cup muffin pan and some tennis balls. Show them how they can place the balls into the cup holders of the muffin pan. Activity: Provide each child with a six cup muffin tin and some tennis balls or balls that will fit inside the each muffin cup holder. Show the children how to match up one ball to one of the muffin cup holders. This math activity is teaching them one to one correspondence. Teacher should sit down on the floor with the children and show them how to put one item into each of the muffin cup holders and encourages them to copy her. Teacher should talk to the children as they are playing with the materials and talk to them about what they are doing such as “putting in” and “taking out”, the word “ball”, to help them to learn some new words. Safety Note: Supervise the children at all times with the materials. Make sure the balls you are using are not too small as to pose a choking hazard. Put all the materials away after this activity. © www.adaycare.com Nursery Rhymes: This Old Man Traditional Song This old man he played one (hold up one finger) he played nick knack on my thumb, (show your thumb) With a nick knack patty whack give a dog a bone, (clap hands softly then show a dog bone) This old man came rolling home. (Roll your arms around each like to represent rolling) Please Note: Young toddlers enjoy being read to and thrive and learn from listening to stories, songs, poetry and nursery rhymes. So please read and sing a lot to the children in your care! © www.adaycare.com
