For example, for learning letter sounds, draw a bunch of colorful fish in chalk on the pavement. Write a letter sound in each fish. Give your little ones squirt bottles - when someone says a letter sounds, they squirt the fish with the sound written inside. Then you could think up words which begin with that sound. What a fun game to play on a sunny day in the summer.
For a writing game, one child draws a picture of something on a piece of paper and hands it to another child or an adult. They draw something. Then they think of a sentence which includes both objects in it with a subject, verb and object. The parent or teacher could then write the sentence on the paper or a white board to read out loud. That would be a fun game to play in a classroom, too!
Another short vowel word game, is to write short vowel words with permanent marker on beach balls: cat, rat, hat or pig, wig, big etc. Toss the ball and the child reads the first word they see.
For a math game, play monster eyes math. Give child playdough to make a monster head. Then give them 10 googly eyes. Hold up a card with a number on it and they put the correct number of eyes on the their monster head.
This is well formatted and has engaging photos for many of the activities to show how to make or play an activity. It will inspire ideas for parents and teachers. I have taught children from 16 months through college age, and spent many years as a preschool director and kindergarten teacher. There were some new and fresh ideas I hadn't seen before. 4.5 stars
Let’s start with the reasons that I LOVE the book and am head over heels excited about it!
I’m a former teacher - 15 years in the classroom - and I love to teach with clear goals and outcomes. In my research thus far about early childhood education, it’s been hard for me to discern what the actual outcomes of learning for children ages 0-3 are. Not that I want to create a completely academic environment for them, just that I want to know, in simple terms, what they need. This book, on page 9, has a list of “50 things kids learn in an early-childhood education environment.” BOOM! And, they tell you how to create a fun and beautiful learning environment that is organized and emphasizes early literacy!
The games in the book are EASY to implement. Each page outlines the targeted skill, the materials, directions, and outcomes. I have been able to implement the activities with things that I a. Have at home or b. Can get at the dollar store. For a family on a small budget, this is a must. Plus, I don’t have to prep ANYTHING to do the activity. Big Sister can choose her page, and we do the activity immediately. There are even recommendations about how to prep for the activities with your child! Awesome.
The book is BEAUTIFUL. I am inspired by beauty, and this book is aesthetically interesting and eye-catching. The color palette is so inspiring, the photos are incredible, and there is a diversity of kids shown throughout the pages. Way to go ladies - the time and effort you put into creating a great product has definitely paid off!
Ok, so let’s talk bilingual parenting and how this book dovetails. We are learning to identify letters and the sounds they make in Spanish, and this book has at least 25 activities to support this early childhood learning pre-reading strategy. To do the games in Spanish, I first just read the instructions and outcomes to myself in English, but I do the activity in Spanish with the girls. They love it, and we are using LOTS of Spanish! Our favorite game thus far is Zip Line Letters!
I've already played the caterpillar sight word spelling game with my Kindergartner and she loved it! I can't wait to try more.
