We introduced the letter R and sound.My Toddler recognized it.Awesome! For Kindergartner we practiced writing R.For older kids you can have them write a story using words beginning in R or write a report on animals with R like raccoon, and rat.The kids put pillows down and jumped on them like they were rocks.
I lined up rocks and hid an R under the rocks and the kids tried to guess which one it was under.
We did a variation for the baby where we hid a rock under plastic eggs.He is still little for it but both of these games are good for fine motor skills.
Nursery Rhyme: Row row row your boat
For a fun activity sit the baby in front of you.As you sing hold the babies hand And rock them gently.Pay attention to their head and make sure its safe.For the older kids have them sit with their legs apart and hold each others hands and rock forward and back.
My daughter wanted the baby to feel the rock.It is important to teach them textures.The rock is smooth.
We did a sensory bin with rocks and water.I added cups and toothbrush.They had fun brushing the rocks.
For our craft we made a craft we found @http://www.dltk-teach.com Hi my name is rectangle and I am no square.
Join us tomorrow for more activities with the letter R.
