Let’s get started.
This week is all about colors and the Letter E.
I was surprised at how well my 4-year old followed along with this printable.
I cut out all of the balloons. Then, I provided the sheet that had all of the color names written on it.
He then matched the balloon to the correct word by using the key.
He was very serious about getting each one right!
We wrote a few E’s and then…demolished.
At least he got some practice using scissors.
Color Pattern Pack (the 12th printable down)
(We did not get to this one! I hope to add it in soon!)
Paint Light and Darkness
This activity provided us with the opportunity to explore the difference between light colors and dark colors.
I divided the paper in half, and let them paint one-half yellow and one-half black. We discussed night and day and the difference between light and dark.
White paper, black and yellow paint, paintbrush
Print these clip cards and get to counting.
Your little ones can count the footballs and find the number.
These adorable printables were so much fun.
Painting with Q-tips for preschoolers is a great fine motor skill activity (and my kids were quiet concentrating!!)
Toddler Circle Painting
Save an empty paper towel roll and use it to paint.
I love to give my preschoolers different materials to explore painting. All you need is the paper towel roll, paint, and paper.
Then, let your little ones create!
We are continuing to make our alphabet book.
This week: E is for elephant.
These octopi are just too cute.
This is a matching activity with patterns and colors.
I wanted to work with Kinsler on learning the ordinal positions. First, second, etc. …
I printed out ten pictures of crocodiles from a google search.
I wrote first, second, third…. on each crocodile.
We then had fun putting them in order and pointing out each position.
Make an Eggshell Disappear
Science in a jar.
We grabbed a Mason Jar and added vinegar and one raw egg.
We have been slowly watching the egg shell sloth off.
The kids loved these puzzles. We did letters A-E.
Each piece had a picture of something that started with the letter. We went through each picture and discussed the phonics of the letter.
Simple Playdough Play with Toothpicks
Got playdough and toothpicks? Then you are ready for this activity.
I let my kids have free play with the play dough. I gave them the toothpicks and asked them to build.
They poked, prodded, and made some structures with them both.
These poems are adorable.
I had a hard time keeping with the exact tune. But we all joined in and learned how to spell the color names.
Color Mixing Printable (11th printable down)
So my little ones think I am kind of cool since I can create colors!
They were fascinated with the color changes.
We used watercolors, but crayons would work as well.
