I liked to have a new theme, or a theme that builds upon it the following class. Since, each new day changed, everyday became my favourite day! I might do gears first, and then Robot Day, as you need gears to run a robot! Robot day has been hilarious journey to hear how these preschool lessons have impacted their families lives. Robot day is a great lesson that can be applied at home! Especially, when I pull out my irobot roomba vacuum cleaner, that shows a real robot in action!
The children would freak out! They would jump up high, as it rolled near their feet, they would jump up on benches. Then I would hear of their stories, of how some children thought it would be a great idea for their moms to get this vacuum, and one child even wanted one for his birthday, to clean his own room! This has been a great investment for my floors, and for the thrills it gave the children!

Make Clean up a Game!
One of the favourite class rooms songs, is “Robot Number One”, sung by the musical group from Australia, called Hi5, one can find it on itunes. A part of the lyrics go, “Robot Number one, Hit the switch and turn me on, We’re gonna have some fun” . Pretending to turn on and off, the children as Robots, turns into a freeze clean up game.
I also love these! As it gives the children a chance to strengthen their arm muscles, to open and close the gripper, these ones listed below, can make it fun for adults, too!
Another fun activity are the Alpha-bots. The capital letters, transform into little robots, with hidden faces, arms, and hands, its a clever transformer. It also makes creating your name out of them fun or creating words that can rhyme!
A Robot Book
A fond memory of my childhood is reading with my parents, and receiving Hallmark Pop Up Books. I have a nativity one, and 3 fairy tales in one, where the binding is practically non existent.
For Robot Day, my favourite discovery of a pop up book is titled, If you’re a Robot and you know it” , with a fun active book to play along when you read. The arms, stretch way up high, and I love the lazer eye beams!
