Perfect spring activity! Picking up pipe cleaner 'worms' with clothespin 'bird beaks'. A wonderful and easy to prepare activity that works fine motor skills and is a great companion to spring nature observation.
(Fine Motor Skills) BIRDS & WORMSCut pipe cleaners into smaller pieces and shape them to make several “worms”. Place the worms on a brown carpet square (this represents the dirt). Children use a clothespin as a bird beak and catch the worms with their beak. As they catch worms, they place them in a basket until all of the worms have been collected.

Name learning activity
I found some of these neon letter pads at the Party Store last night... and had to grab a few. This morning we tried them out while we did a quick name spelling activity. First I wrote my son's name on a big piece of drawing paper. Then I drew some blank spaces underneath. Then we spread out all of the letter pads so that we could see each of them. My little guy started off the activity by spelling his name. He used my big marker version to help him (as a visual cue). Then I covered over my version, pulled off the letters, and encouraged him to try and spell his name by himself (without the visual model)- from memory. Wow, was I surprised! He got R and E confused and that was it. With a quick prompt to stop and sing his name song again... he remembered the right way to spell it... and he changed the E to an R. Next he took his pencil and traced the letters on top of the letter pads. Then he tried writing the letters on the blank spaces without any help. This activity was more of an exercise in exploring his name than writing it correctly. It was also a fun way to practice spelling because it used new-to-us materials. It is awesome that a new tool can make a boring activity into a more exciting one. I just enjoyed watching as he tried to copy the lines and shapes. He spent the rest of the day at church trying to write his name on all sorts of pieces of paper. Note: If they had lower case letter pads, that would be preferred (with a capital first letter), but this set didn't. What are some other simple ways to help your child learn to write/spell his name?
Letter Pad Name Spelling
Important to “Teach teaching, not correcting” (Montessori) in order to allow the child to be a fully functionional member in hios own society. Practical Life Exercises also aid the growth and development of the child’s intellect and concentration and will in turn also help the child develop an orderly way of thinking.

My five-year-old loves to do Rainbow Writing. I simply write something for her in pencil, and she traces over the letters or numbers, using the colors in rainbow order, of course! Great entertainment for that crazy time of day when I’m trying to get dinner ready. This is fun with watercolors, too! Happy playing!
G loves rainbows so I hope this encourages her to practice her numbers....those 3's and 5's are tricky business
write something for her in pencil, and she traces over the letters or numbers, using the colors in rainbow order,
For those students who need more practice with writing letters, numbers, or their names! :) Fun!
