I found a super fun idea ‘tracing shapes with stickers’ for my preschooler today on Her Cup Overfloweth! So cute, I am adding it to my preschool arsenal now!
Actually it was so fun, I had to print copies for my kindergartner and 2nd grader:
Here is a link to a shape tracing template from Coloring Castle, they also have this shape tracer worksheet that gives the connecting dots only and the student has to fill in the missing ones, I used this for the older kids!
I also made a Numbers Tracing Worksheet as well, figure while we’re at it might as well practice numbers! LOL!
What a fun idea!
We'll be doing this one! I love the way it combines shape recognition with fine motor control.
Could you tell me how you use the Blend Ladders with your littles?I love you blog; such great ideas!Dawn
Hi, We use the blend ladders to teach phonics, so they learned all the vowels first, then consonants. As they learn each consonant use that blend ladder to practice 'blending' the sounds together, like:T + a = ta, so I say the t sound then the a sound then put them together, and do that all the way down the ladder. As they get that, you can use dry-erase markers to add another consonant at the end of the blend like:ta + p = tap, te+n = ten, ti+p= tip, etc.
Thank you so much! I found your blog a couple of days ago and I've found so many great ideas for my 4 & 6 yo. Blessings to you all,Dawn
Hi, I love this sticker shape activity and hope to try with my 2.8 year old soon. I also hope to one day share this idea on my my parenting page, http://www.facebook.com/ConsciousParentingApproach – inviting you and your fans to come pass by and say Hello to us too! 🙂
