Clothespin Games and Printables

Clothes pin activities are a great way to incorporate learning and fine motor muscle building.  When kiddos use their cute little fingers to pinch the clothes pins open they get a great little workout.

I created several sets of clothes pins for my preschool students using both mini and regular sized clothes pins.  I hot glued fun painted wood pieces {found at your local craft store} to the end of each pin and added letters or numbers.

We started the year using them for basic matching.  Lower case letter to lower case letter, number to number and capital to capital.  Then we started mixing them asking the kiddos to match the capital to the lower case and lower case clips to capital letters.   Later in the year to extend the learning I created beginning sound wheels.  The students are now asked to match the correct letter to the beginning sound of each picture.

If you’d like to download the beginning sound wheels please click on the links below.

Farm Pop-up Book Printables

Our Pre-K year is quickly coming to a close.  That means these sweet little ones need to be completely ready for Kindergarten. 

To help them prepare we have begun guided writing.  Don’t know what that is?  Well, it’s exactly as it sounds.  You guide the children through the process of writing letter by letter, direction by direction {where to start on the lines, where to stop, how to leave finger spaces etc.}  It’s a slow process, but a great method to begin to really teach penmanship.

We are making Farm Pop-up books!  Over the next 3 weeks we’ll complete this 4 page book using guided writing.  I love the way the cow pops off the page.

The kiddos add the background to the picture before gluing on the cow.

If you’d like to download the farm pop-up book animals you can download them here.

I have made some super simple paper you can use if you’d like to make one too.  I created 4 varieties of paper depending on where your child is at in the writing process.

Happy farm writing, or really anything writing since the papers aren’t specific!

 

Shaving Cream Fun

Do your kids or students love to get messy and squish things in their sweet little fingers?  Mine LOVE IT!  (Well, most of them)

To practice anything that involves writing why not use shaving cream and a cooking tray?  I prefer Barbasol since it’s fluffy and smells good.

We use shaving cream writing for making shapes, straight lines, curved lines, name writing, letter writing, drawing pictures, sight word practice etc.

Hint:  If your tables are dirty, let them play {oh, I mean work} directly on the table.  You won’t believe how clean it is after a shaving cream bath!  🙂

I hope this inspires you to get messy with your kids today!

Preschool Farm Pack

We are starting our farm unit next week in preschool.  I made a pack of fun printable activities:  Everything from puppets, patterns, smallest to tallest, number writing etc.  Join the fun and download this pack for the little ones in your life!

Special thanks to the AMAZING graphic artists at mygrafico.com, especially Stockbury Studios, Revi Devi and Goodness & Fun!  Without them sharing for educational purposes these would be very drab.  🙂

Over the next several weeks I’ll post some hands-on activities too, since I can’t stand too much paper/pencil for little ones.

Follow along to get more FAB FARM ideas!

Letter W Worm

Whew!  What a week we’ve had!  This is a simple idea, but the kids REALLY enjoyed it!  We made giant letters out of brown paper, added some brown string to represent sections of the worms body and googly eyes.  Who doesn’t love google eyes?  Getting some REAL worms to let the kids explore is always a treat!  You’ll be amazed that after a couple of days with your new “pets” even the most timid of kids might venture a feel.  We did it last year and the kids LOVED it!

Happy letter making and good luck inspiring the little people in your lives to learn their letters!

Letter t Turtle

Okay, so with all of the excitement with my “You’ve been Egged” post, this is sort of lame.   But, it’s something we actually did and the kids LOVED it.  That’s most important to me.  🙂   If you also think this post might be a little lacking, check back tomorrow.  You are going to LOVE what I’m posting!!!  Oh and if you haven’t seen the You’ve Been Egged post, check it out!  It’s super fun.  {Think Booed, Easter style}

To help us learn the letter shape for “t” we made silly little turtles using construction paper, tissue paper and google eyes.  First I cut out a t shape from construction paper.  I made the “head” and “front legs” rounded at the end and the bottom of the t pointed.

The kids glued on oval “shells”, google eyes and “back legs”.  To make the letter shape visible while the turtle wears his shell, the turtle was made out of tissue paper.  Have fun, the kids will love this project and don’t forget to check back tomorrow for something you won’t want to miss.

W is for Weather

This week we are learning about various types of weather with our preschool students.  The kids know the weather is different every day but don’t understand why it rains or snows etc.  We’ll read several books about weather, then make some puppets that represent different types of weather.  PDF Weather puppets

Then we play “Guess the Weather”.  I might say something like:

“This kind of weather is sometimes very Continue reading

Dr Seuss Birthday – March 2nd

What school year would be complete without celebrating Dr. Seuss’ birthday on March 2nd.  We spend the day wearing pajamas and reading LOTS and LOTS of Dr Seuss books, like Cat in the Hat, Green Eggs and Ham and One Fish, Two Fish.  These books allow for lots of great integrated learning!
