One little, two little, three little ovals,
Four little, five little, six little ovals,
Seven little, eight little, nine little ovals,
Ten little ovals look like eggs! (draw an oval in the air with your forefinger)
Other Activities for Preschool Lesson Plan: Oval
Sensory table: Fill your sensory table with oval shaped dried beans and plastic Easter eggs that open and shut. Let your students have fun filling the oval eggs with beans and then pouring the beans out.
What’s in the egg?: Play this game with your students at circle time. Let your students see a collection of small objects such as pennies, kernels of corn and small toys. Put the items in plastic Easter eggs of the same color. Mix the eggs up. Let your students, one by one, choose an egg, shake it and guess which item is inside.
Counting: Use ovals to help your preschool students learn to count. Cut out several ovals of any color from felt. Have your students roll dice, then place then count out the number of ovals that they rolled on the dice, placing them on the flannel board as they count. You may opt to make the ovals from laminated construction paper and use them on a table or carpet instead.
