Build a Snowman
Check out our indoor snowman!
This is a great language building activity for my tot. While he moves around all the pieces I say the names of the colors, shapes and/or body parts. He loves testing out this new vocabulary by repeating the words back to me.
To turn this fun felt board activity into a learning experience for my preschooler, I created an emergent reader. This is the first reader I made for her, so it was definitely a learning experience. Next time I think I'll scale back a little. I included sight words, color words, shapes, numbers and clipart to cut out and paste.
Once she got to work on the book, I knew it was a little too much for her to handle on her own. But as always, she amazes me! We worked together to assemble the book. Then I guided her the first time through reading the book. Now she proudly reads this book all by herself!
