I have been thinking a lot lately about how I need to be doing more activities with my younger kids to get my 4 year old ready for preschool next year. I have been looking for ideas on the internet to see what there is, and I have come up with some activities soon to come. The activities will probably be random...ranging from letters of the alphabet to numbers to shapes and so on.
Today I started with the letter "O". I printed off this "O" worksheet from HERE.
I ended our "O" day by reading the book The Great Swimming Race (By: Ann Bryant and Peter Kavanagh) I wanted to read a fun children's book about an octopus and this is what I could find at my local library. It was an easy read, but after a busy afternoon my kids didn't seem to mind.
The kids were really entertained and loved all the activities! I can't wait to do more fun things like this with them!!
Some More O Ideas:
Make an octopus - Cover a small styrofoam ball with cloth and tie it with enough ribbons to make eight legs.
Build a simple obstacle course for your child to play on. Another game to play could be to help your child think of opposites. You say the word "off" and your child must reply with "on".
Octagon - point out the shape in everyday objects such as a stop sign. Draw and color one.
ABC & 123 also has some great finds for the letter "O".
