• Review all objectives and books covered in the past weeks, and complete any activities that you were unable to finish.
• Create a handprint and footprint. Keep it to compare with one that you will create at the end of the curriculum as well. You may want to begin the Handprint and Footprint Calendar for a great Christmas gift.
- Draw 3/4 of a shape. Have the child finish the shape. (Worksheet is available in the ABCJLM Visual Perception Workbook.)
- Hide Easter Eggs and tell your child to look for a specific colored egg.
• Letters & Numbers:
- Explain how numbers 1 and 4 are separate numbers but together they can be 14 (smaller number) or 41 (larger number). Count out stickers, buttons, M&M's, or Cheerios in a group of 1, 4, 14 and 41.
- Weeks 1-4 are spent working on "straight line letters." Use the Straight Line Characters worksheet to review all letters and numbers learned thus far.
• Information - Name:
If your child is ready, remove all lines and have the child write his/her name on a blank sheet of paper. This activity prepares a child for signing cards, crafts, or other unlined items.
• Fine Motor Skill:
If the child is not ready for number dominoes, there are several picture domino options available.
• Gross Motor Skill:
While playing the actual rules of Twister is probably too difficult for this age level, take turns calling out colors and body parts to match.
• Visual Perception Skill:
Block-to-Block Direct Matching is another concept that I learned through visual therapy. There are so many wonderful developmental points to this activity that I added it to the 4 Year Curriculum. Plus, it is fun! Exact directions and steps are given on the Block-to-Block Matching page on this website.
Items Needed for Block-to-Block Direct Matching: A set of blocks that has duplicates in shape and color (Parquetry Block Super Set, Pattern Blocks and Boards, or Pattern Blocks) and plastic acetate or plexiglass sheets (hard clear plastic) or any transparent product that is strong enough to carry blocks.
