Monsters and Superheroes

Monsters and Superheroes

Monsters & Superheroes have featured heavily in our play recently so I set up a few activities related to this…

Monsters on the Finger Gym

I’ve done this  a few times before, but not with this class. Colanders (with eyes) and pipe cleaner ‘hair’…

Superheroes from Early Years Resources

I was totally delighted to receive these fabulous wooden superheroes to review from Early Years Resources

I added them to a table with monsters and blocks so that we could build ‘cities’ for them. Lots of lovely language came from this…

I like the fact that the children can pretend they are whatever superheroes they want. They are lovely and tactile too! ❤

We use these bins for some of our phonics games. We pretended they were gobbling monsters this time…

Monster Names

We focus on Phase 1 phonics in my class, but those who are ready have started on Phase 2. They enjoyed creating monster names. (The monster images are from Pixabay )…

Scissor Skills

Not related to monsters and superheroes, but thought I’d share anyway. Different line thicknesses (and patterns) for the children to attempt to cut along. The thicker the lines the easier it is…
