Fox in Socks
*After reading the story we sorted socks by color, texture, size and pattern.
*We then practiced folding them together, which really is a great fine motor workout for little hands.
*I hid a few mystery items in some of the socks and the children had to feel the item through the sock and try to guess what was inside based just on feel alone.
*We added all the socks into our sensory table when we were done and added the clothesline for the children to hang up the matches.
*I had the children compare their shoes and socks and encouraged them to remember who was wearing what. I then had the children cover their eyes while I had one come up and stand behind our mystery wall. The other children then had to open their eyes and guess which child it was based on their feet! The children could choose if they wanted to show their shoes or their socks. Such a fun game!
*We designed our own socks for the fox
using water colors.
The sign reads: We made these socks to put on fox after reading, Fox In Socks. These socks aren't plain and blue, sir. They are new and fun to view, sir!
