Day 47: Understanding Over, On, & Under

Here is another learning activity adapted from our “Home Preschool Curriculum” developed by Fran Wisniewski and Diane Flynn Keith for

Remember, only do these learning activities if they are enjoyable for you and your child. Do not treat this as a “must do” lesson. It’s simply a fun activity that provides an opportunity to learn, while building “readiness skills” for the school or homeschool environment.

~ Understanding Over, On, & Under ~

  • Read We Are Going On A Bear Hunt by Michael Rosen
  • Listen to this fun version of We Are Going On A Bear Hunt online.
  • Do the body play Bear Hunt with your child and go through the motions with them.
  • Lay on the ground with your child and look up into the sky. Talk about the planes, birds and other things that are moving overhead.
  • Talk about the things you go over such as a bridge or a stream.
  • Before going on a nature walk talk about the things you are putting on such as shoes, a jacket, and binoculars. As you walk, talk about the things you find on the ground. When you get home, talk about all the wonderful things you’ve collected while walking and place them on a nature table!
  • Make a tent out of your kitchen table! While your child is under the table, talk about his/her position.
  • Play a game of Limbo! You can use a rope or a broom for this fun game.
  • Play a direction game with your child. Ask your child to stack blocks on top of one another, next to one another, then put two blocks close together and put another on top of or over the two blocks to form a bridge, ask your child to put a block under the “bridge”.
