What activities for children we did with the book?
I went to JDaniel’s school with a bunch of paper bags and used the Ellison to cut out a bunch of bears. We have a lot of brown paper bag and I thought we should use them in honor of Earth Day. Paper bags really make a great material for learning activities.
I had JDaniel decorate the front of the one of the big bears. Then we punched holes around the edge of two of the bears stacked on top of each other and wove them together.
The bears were lined up on the floor in alphabetical order.
Before and After
I asked JDaniel to find the letters that came before and after a letter a placed on the table. It really made me think about letters.
Match the Letter to an Object
I had JDaniel pick a letter and then find an object in the kitchen that matched that letter. We ended up with a lot of cooking tools. I think we should try this in his room and see what treasures he find there.
Write the Letter in Salt
JDaniel practiced one to one correspondence by placing the correct number of button on each bear on a card.
Write the Number
Then JDaniel practice writing those numbers in the salt I had placed in a tray.
Shape the Number
JDanel loves buttons. I had him form the number using some buttons I had placed in a cup.
Here are some other activities for children I know you will love:
