Where the Wind Blows...

As a part of our study of Fall and reading the story Leaf Man by Lois Ehlert we practiced different kinds of blowing.  On "Tickle Tuesdays" we practice various oral motor skills in our classroom.  Today we pretended to be the wind like in our story and we blew feathers, bubbles, and leaves. 

Blowing feathers up in the air to see how they float and what happend when the "wind" blows


 

We crawled around on the floor and blew the feathers as we went.  The kids had fun experimenting with different positions and exercising their large motor skills as they went along!
