• Review all objectives and books covered in the past weeks, and complete any activities that you were unable to finish.
Play educations games like Hi Ho Cherry-O, Candy Land, Go Fish, and Stomp 1-2-3.
Shape Scramble works great with several children or can be tweaked for one child. Scatter several shapes around the room. Have the children sit in the middle of the room. Explain that when you say "scramble" they are to get up and walk around the room; when you say "circle" the children are to come and sit in the middle of the room again. As they walk around the room, you will say the name of a shape. They are to find that shape and stand by it.
• Letters and Numbers:
- Put various magnetic refrigerator letters or numbers into a small bag or basket. Have the child draw a number or letter and tell you the name of the number or letter and the sound the letter creates. You may even have the child give you a word that starts with that sound.
- Using shallow cups, write a number on the side of each cup. Have your child fill each cup with the correct number of items. Suggested items: Cheerios, M&M’s, buttons, coins, etc.
For the past four weeks, the child has learned to write the first four letters in his name. Weeks 25 and 26 will work on the fifth and six letters. If the child's name contains more than six letters, add an additional letter this week.
• Fine Motor Skills:
Write "My Family" on the bottom of a blank piece of paper. Have your child draw his/her family. Your child will be doing this activity periodically throughout the curriculum. Write the date on the back of the picture and save the picture to compare each time. The pictures should become more detailed with time.
• Gross Motor Skill:
March to music or a drum
