• Letter & Number Ideas:

Continue to have the child practice writing her name on 1 1/2" tracing paper.

• Have a letter or number hunt.
On a large, individual piece of paper, write a review letter or number. Continue with all of the letters and numbers. Scatter the pieces of paper on a table. Have the child search in magazines for the various letters or number. Cut the examples out and paste them onto the correct sheets. This activity could be done by several children at a time.
• Fine Motor Skill:
Using candy corn or other small Halloween candy, create groups of candy from zero to five in a pile. Encourage your child to use his thumb and index finger. For additional practice, have the child pick up the small items with a pair of tweezers or tongs. Cosmetic tweezers may be harder to use so consider purchasing a plastic set that comes in science or doctor sets or use kitchen tongs.
• Gross Motor Skill:
Walking a straight line - heel to toe
- Walk along a line of tape on the floor or use Sidewalk Chalk outside (Note: Do not use masking tape on carpet, as it will leave a residue.)
- Walk along a curb or fallen log
- Go to a playground that has a low balance beam
