Not Your Average Paper Clock craft: Lets face it: Learning how to tell time is tough. There are just so many rules to memorize. The hour hand is short. The minute hand counts by fives. The hour hand speaks first. All these rules in one spot
Awesome for teaching children how to tell time. I would use this as a whole class activity, and each child would get their own. --Teaching Special Thinkers: Telling Time is EASY PEASY Love this idea for teaching time with manipulatives!
Make these simple sensory bottles as a hands-on manipulative to talk about the weather. Great for circle time! I would use this in a kindergarten class. put the children in 5 groups and let them tell class mates what they think about their bottle.
Building hand muscle strength plus counting practice.I love this! Another twist: every kid has a card. Punch cards according to their behavior. If they have 5 holes at end of week, that means they listened and they get a "treat" of some sort.
A, Bee, C, Preschool: Building Shapes. Kindergarten readiness: Colored craft sticks are labeled with the number of sides each shape has, ie: 3 purple sticks - triangle. The children will choose a color and build the matching colored shape from the sticks.
