This is the first post of activities for our Homemade Kindergarten. I will try my best to take photos and post about all the learning activities we have been working on but if you have any questions, please, please ask! I love comments and questions!!
At the beginning of the school year I tend to focus on a couple different themes. 1st: routine! I spend a lot of time talking about rules and how to's (how do we ask to go to the bathroom, how do we sit at the carpet, etc..) 2nd: shapes. 3rd: our names. 4th: fine motor skills. 5th: number sense 1-5 6th: singing the abc song and letter names. So along those same lines with my own kiddos we have been working within those themes as well.
We worked on identifying shapes (circle, square, triangle, oval, rectangle, diamond), then we traced shapes and then cut them out.
We did one page in our name booklet, and also building our names with cut up toilet paper tubes. Thank you, Imprints from Tricia for the inspiration.
We practiced printing our pre-printing basic shapes.
We also used our pinching fingers and used our fine motor skills to put fruit loops on shapes.
