The playground is one of the most favorite places in school and where tons of fun and imaginative play happens. Practice building your playground with blocks or pom poms. Then count how many of each colored manipulative you used to build.
This letter recognition activity will have you excited for art! Use different items to form each target letter, pipe cleaners, playdough, or trace with a dry erase marker. Place crayons or other small manipulatives on each matching letter.
Bus Stop Counting
Kids dream getting to ride the bus because it makes them feel like big kids! Drive a small bus to pick up each child. How many did you pick up total? Use people counters or pom poms to fill the 10 frame to match the number of children you picked up on your bus route.
The library is a magical place in school. So many books to take you on any adventure you want to read about. Place your books in the book return and place a stick to mark each book returned. Use a magnet number or write the number of books returned in the box.
