Summer Learning

Summer is in full swing and school is just around the corner! What have you been doing at home to get ready for kindergarten? Probably more than you think, but need some fun ideas to break the boredom and get some learning done in the process? check out these ideas from Pinterest!

why not try an alphabet treasure hunt

Alphabet Treasure Hunt. A clever learning idea.  Love this!

Or play ABC hide and seek at the playground

ABC park scavenger hunt

Practice measurement with playdoh and a ruler
Cutting Play-Doh to Learn Measurements

Make water bottle lids into a math game for counting, number recognition even adding and subtracting

water bottle lids..Great idea for a math center!
Put salt, sand, or sugar (yummy) in a shallow pan like a cookie tray and have kids copy letters
DIY Salt tray with Alphabet Cards

Use balls or bean bags and toss to practice number sense

Bean bag toss game.  Would be great for an indoor rainy-day game.  Or in the garage if you're afraid of errant beanbags breaking stuff in the house.  Directions to make it on the website.

Play cards, even better, build with them

Having the kids build towers when playing the "war" card game helps differentiate the game

Make some word or letter ping pong balls. You can bounce and read them for a twist on reading practice

Use ping pong balls to teach your active learner sight words.  "Throw 'for' to me.  Throw 'so' to me."  Could float in water and fish out with net as well--> like the net idea
