A Worms Preschool Theme?! How cool and gross and fun! Even those who don't like them will learn to appreciate them through this theme! You'll see the words "critters", "crawlers" and "wigglers" used often!
This page has activities, ideas and preschool lesson plans for each Interest Learning Center in your preschool classroom.
Okay, not actual ones, but be creative! Add small stuffed animal snakes; add colorful pipe cleaners or pieces of yarn; have the children cut their own wigglers out of construction paper and add them to the block area. The dramatic play will take hold in your block area!
Cooking with children helps develop their math skills and helps them to learn how to follow directions. It also allows for some great conversation! Ask many questions while cooking with your children to encourage conversation! Be sure to ask specific themed questions while making these fun snacks!
Ewww..What's in the Apple
Cut apples in half (across the middle). Place one or two gummy critters in the middle!
Provide items to have a gardening center! Use real dirt--I know, I know--it IS messy--provide child sized brooms and dustpans (and a dust buster type vacuum!) to help teach the children to clean up after themselves!
Place gardening tools such as watering cans, spray bottles, seeds, plastic spades, etc. soil, pretend plastic night crawlers into a large bin or a wading pool.
Place a tarp under it for easier clean up.
Provide aprons and a place to rinse hands (perhaps a small bin with warm, soapy water and towels).
Encourage your children to print letters they know and turn them into worms by adding faces. Encourage them to tell stories about their creations and make the pages from all the children into a class book.
