Activities for ages 3 to 5.
As a National Board kindergarten teacher, my bookshelves are packed with beginning of kindergarten assessments and lesson plans.
So as my oldest son’s first day of kinder approached, I jumped to work creating alphabet, math and fine motor activities that were both effective AND fun so he could hit the ground running the moment he stepped through his new classroom door.
This motivating pack of 63 easy prep alphabet, math and fine motor activities teach everything from letter sounds to counting, fine motor skills, shapes, rhyming, letter formation… seriously EVERYTHING a new kindergartener would need to know to start the year with confidence.
The fun games made learning exciting for my son and the quick prep made it a breeze to prep each day. It was a definite win-win for both of us.
How it Works
There are two easy ways to use this pack:
- Pick one alphabet, math and fine motor activity to finish each week. By the time kids complete all of the games, they’ll be extremely well prepared for kindergarten.
- If you’re teaching a specific skill (writing the ABCs, for example), open up the relevant activity pack and find that skill listed in the table of contents. Print out one of the activities and enjoy some fun-filled learning.
