If you have a little one under five at home, Sunday School is your ultimate resource for activities, projects, and resources from our pre-homeschooling home to yours! Whether you plan to homeschool/unschool or not, here's some ideas for the week. Check back next Sunday for more fun ideas and information!
Apple Sensory Match-up from I Can Teach My Child is a perfect fall activity.
Lots of great cardboard toilet paper roll craft ideas over at No Time for Flashcards.
Grocery Store Safari - clip pictures from your local grocery ad, paste them on posterboard or recycled cardboard and go on a grocery safari. Great activity to keep little ones busy during shopping trips, or theme the activity for a specific lesson on a color or letter.
Opposite Day - Practice opposites with preschoolers by playing a game of opposites. Take turns giving directions to each other, but do the opposite! If your child tells you to stand up, sit down. If you say to cry, pretend to laugh instead!
Hot and cold - Help teach kids temperature by playing hot and cold. Pay extra attention to using terms like cool and warm while displaying correct pantomimes (shivering, wiping off sweat, etc).
If you haven't read my post in response to the bullying suicides this month, please do.
