good morning readers! It’s been a little while since I did an update on what the Teeny Tot is doing. We just got back from spring break and she’s been working diligently on her kindergarten year.
She’s reading well now, and still having fun doing all of the K4 Kindergarten activities along with some other fun things that we add in here and there. So I thought I’d take today to give you a little snapshot of what she’s been up to.
She loves to do mazes, and so she’s been working her way through my K4 Kindergarten maze worksheets this year.
She also likes to do puzzles. Since she’s our last little one to go through the curriculum, I just printed the K4 Number Order Puzzles on copy paper, and then she cuts them apart along the lines. Next she reassembles them onto a piece of construction paper and glues them down to complete the puzzle.
Of course we’re working our way through Math U See, and she’s having fun with her blocks as usual!
To help with number writing practice, counting, and fine motor skills today she did one of my preschool roll & trace activities.
This Constructive Playthings Cubical Activity pack is a great activity for building logical thinking skills. Students recreate the image on the cards. This is a fairly basic card, but they increase in skill level as you go through them. Some include blocks that can’t be seen on the card, but must be there to complete the shape. Students have to use spatial reasoning to figure out how to make the shape work.
We also like to play games with our unifix cubes and a large die. I have free printables on my blog called Dice & Domino math that include a bunch of fun games for prek and elementary grades.
And of course she loves to cut and paste with her missing numbers worksheet, included in my K4 Kindergarten curriculum.
Here she’s working on beginning sounds, so she’ll circle the picture that starts with the letter at the beginning of the row. This is also in my K4 Kindergarten curriculum.
It’s been awhile since we brought out our Hot Dots Jr. games, and so I thought I’d pull them out for a bit of a change in her daily activities. They have harder ones, but we worked on her phonics/letter sounds today. Each time she picks the right one, the pen lights up green and makes a happy sound.
We’re also working on skip counting in math, so I added in my K4 Kindergarten skip counting flashcards.
She’s also still working on handwriting, although she does an Abeka handwriting sheet as well. She just likes my printables because they’re a bit more fun.
Do your kids love Do-A-Dot markers as much as mine? Anytime we bring these out she loves it. I will say that you need to put something UNDER your worksheet if you’re working right on a white desk because the markers bleed through the paper and onto the desk top. Nothing that a little windex or cleaner can’t get off, but still. Here she’s highlighting all of the letter “Ns” in the worksheet.
This one is always fun, it’s the clothes pin number match. I used a sharpie and wrote numbers on each of the little plastic clips (found at Wal-mart) and then she counts the dots, and matches the clip with the correct number on it. I also have an alphabet wheel match up game as well
And that’s it for today’s recap! I hope you’re having a great year and learning lots! Unless otherwise indicated in the post, all of the activities can be found in my K4 Kindergarten Curriculum. I also have a lot of free kindergarten worksheets on my free printables page!
Is my Letter of the Week Preschool Curriculum a little too easy for your student? Are you ready for something a little more challenging? Then the K4 Curriculum is for you! The K4 Curriculum is geared towards kids ages 4-5 who are kindergarten ready and want a fun hands-on kindergarten curriculum. The K4 curriculum covers beginning reading and phonics skills as well as basic math addition, subtraction, and skip counting skills and more!
