Kindergarten Math Activity to Solve Simple Addition Problems

This is not just a Kindergarten math activity that works on solving simple addition problems, but can also be a great number matching game for preschoolers! Henry surprised me the other day and brought home a coloring page with math addition problems on it. I had no idea they learned addition in Kindergarten! He then […]

Sort Colors & Get Moving With a Play Tunnel

This is a silly way to get the kids to learn about and sort colors. I absolutely needed to get the kids moving, or at least I thought I did. I have not been making the best of all their energy lately, and it’s starting to wear on me. So we included our play tunnel in […]

Ring Toss Name Recognition Activity

Ring Toss Name Recognition Activity

George just recently started learning his name to be more than the letter ‘G’, so we’re working on name recognition lately, and made a ring toss to get him moving and learning it! It was just Louis’ first birthday, so we have paper cups and plates still sitting out. I simply wrote the letters of […]

Giant Spider Web Maze for Kids

Of course, a large spider web maze for the kids was in store… we just had to! You know how much I love mazes… and spider webs seems to be the theme in our house this Halloween. Plus, I found a super easy way for clean up with Clorox Disinfecting Wipes [who's sponsoring this conversation], […]

25 Active Ways to Learn Indoors with Tape

I have a thing with tape. I kind of like it…. just a little. Okay, maybe a lot! It comes in handy for activities, especially for active ways to learn pretty much anything! The great thing about tape is it gets the kids moving indoors. When its too hot, or too cold to be moving […]

Number Match Slap with Playing Cards

I just realized the potential of playing cards and learning numbers. Duh! We played a number match game with them, they’re great for number recognition! Even more so than recognizing numbers, a deck of playing cards are absolutely wonderful for one to one correspondence. George practiced a little of that with this number match to […]

Spider Web Sight Word Match

Inspired loosely by our giant sticky spider web made of tape, I made a spider web on the wall to have a little sight word match! Henry’s been diving into sight words in Kindergarten, and doing really well with them. To be honest, we haven’t done much sight word practice, other than reviewing the list […]

I’m Playing Hookie.

Okay, not really hookie. I feel like crap and I can’t muster up the energy to write my post for the Move & Learn series. So I’m just writing quickly to share what my co-hosts are doing this week and I’ll see you again next week! Light Saber Sight Word Practice at Coffee Cups & […]

Search for & Match Shapes to Their Outlines

I made a quick game for George to match shapes with their outlines. While George was gone with Grandpa to run an errand, I quickly searched around the house to find a few objects to trace. I used a large piece of butcher paper [but any paper, even file folders would work like Growing Play did, […]

TEXTURE-SCAVENGER-HUNT

Explore Textures on an Outdoor Scavenger Hunt

We went on a scavenger hunt as a backyard exploration. We’ve done outdoor scavenger hunts quite a bit. This time we made it a learning experience inspired by a Playful Learning eLesson [who has sponsored this post], Backyard Science, as well as a way to explore our backyard in a different way. This time we […]
