I am going to teach a group of nursery children how to differentiate soft and hard objects.
I am going to bring in some soft and hard objects to the classroom to let them see.
Can someone give me some examples of objects of soft & hard objects that can be bring into the classroom?
-babies soft teddy
-velvet or fluffy material
-brick (toy one)
If you want to do a food experience:
If you want to make things a but harder for the more able children:
-nail brush-which parts hard, which parts soft
-juggle balls-soft to touch but you cant really squeeze them
Look up a collection of books could
“thats not my…” they are great for tactile activities!!!
Wood or Twig
(Other Objects used in School)
Toy truck or something
Hard games ball [i.e. golf, baseball etc]
If you have class pets as well such as a hamster you could talk about how it’s fur is soft :]
sponge,apiece of silk napkin or handkerchief
a piece of a tea cake or a muffin
a soft toy
a piece of wood
a steel spoon
a metal keychain or a key
a metal hanger
I personally like the Good Bad Boy’s or is that the Bad good Boy’s? I also like the guy’s that are themselves above all else and have a understanding of what being in a relationship means that it is a fifty fifty partnership, a guy that doesn’t want to change me into someone I’m not but loves me unconditionally, someone that can make me laugh but doesn’t mind if I cry on his shoulder too,A guy that is my best friend and that I can Communicate with about any thing and that we have mutual Respect for eacother and total trust. That’s the type of guy’s i like
It would be interesting to make 2 playdough balls…let one harden completely and keep one in a bag so it stays soft.
a dry sponge and a wet sponge. (Not a brand new dry sponge-one that has been used and has dried out on its own).
plastic “easter” eggs with a pom pom inside.
pencil and pencil shavings/crayon and crayon shavings (pencil shavings are a lot softer but keep them in a bag or a container and don’t let them sniff!)
There are great books that are full of textures. Check your local library. You can make a texture “board” as well.
Which of these objects is hard
soft: sponge, play dough, cloth, and a stuffed animal
hard: hard cover book, rock, wood, and walls
Bring like a ROCK and a Sponge.
Rock / feather
Glass or dish / cotton balls
Cell phone / chenille fabric
Millions of choices…
