Mystery Shapes!

Looking for a way to add some excitement with shapes?

There is something about a sense of prediction and surprise that makes learning shapes a lot more fun than what may be drawn on a worksheet.

In fact, a lot of activities are better off not on a worksheet, and it is my mission to help you create more hand-on learning opportunities in your home.

Truth is, setting activities like this one are even faster than pressing print and waiting for it to come out the printer!

Breakfast Invitation to Begin Counting

Something interesting has happened since my oldest started preschool.

What happened, is that my middle guy (three-years-old) has come out of his shell and is beginning to take risks with his learning at home.

You see, my 4.5-year-old means EVERYTHING to my three-year-old. According to him, he’s the coolest, smartest best friend a brother can have.

But something happens when the two of them are learning together.

My oldest takes the lead and my middle guy follows along not ready to take chances with his learning. He doesn’t want to get it wrong in front of his biggest idol.

So where multi-age learning is important, it is also important for me to check in with my three-year-old and create simple set-ups that we can do together to reinforce some basic skills for Kindergarten Readiness.
