The activities in this post are great to use while at home during the COVID-19 Coronavirus outbreak.

Of course, you can use them anytime of year in the home or classroom, too!

Fine Motor Art Project

We started the day with a fun art project that we’ve seen floating around recently. People have been posting hearts in their windows so that passersby can spot them while out getting fresh air during the quarantine. Just a sweet way to show solidarity during an otherwise stressful time.

The kiddos each had a heart template and pasted small squares of colored paper to it. Use a glue stick, plus using those finger muscles to pick up small pieces of paper was a good way to squeeze in some fine motor work.

Additionally, their favorite part of this little project was probably watching the hearts run through the laminator! It was a totally unnecessary step, but it was so sweet to watch their interest. DOWNLOAD HEART TEMPLATE

Alphabet Hide and Seek

If you read this post last week, you know that I love using sticky notes! They’re such versatile little slips of paper 😉 After writing all the uppercase letters on sticky notes, I gave them to the kids to hid around our family room.

Next, it was time to play alphabet hide and seek! They had to find a sticky note (one at a time), locate the letter on their recording sheets, and dot it with a dauber. Then, they could go find another one.

Once they’d collected and dotted all of the letters, they exchanged their stacks of notes. They went through the pile, matching the stickies to the letters on their page and dotted them until their entire page of letters was covered. After they read a letter, they crumpled the sticky and put it into a bowl so that we can use them for a future activity. DOWNLOAD ABC HIDE AND SEEK

Letter of the Week: Ww

I introduced the letter Ww and we made a circle chart. We named several things that begin with Ww and drew pictures of them on the chart for reference throughout the week.

They LOVED drawing with their fingers in my makeshift salt trays. Getting them to practice writing Ws was EASY using them. Novelty is a great motivator! We wrapped up this part of our morning with some handwriting practice, and a little candy incentive…which is also a great motivator 😉 DOWNLOAD A FULL SET OF ALPHABET HANDWRITING PRACTICE

Sight Word Work: the

Last week, we worked on the sight word a and this week, we’re moving onto the. After introducing the word, we spelled it aloud and highlighted the in a minibook.

Many have asked if I have a complete set of sight word mini books. I do not! I’m just making these as we learn them, so it’s just a work in progress.

Math Work

We are doing some number review since we’re approaching the end of the school year. Today, we worked on the number one. The kids completed simple dotting activity to differentiate the numeral one from other numerals. DOWNLOAD MATH PAGE

The math page pictured above is part of an entire early numeracy curriculum with multiple activities to use with each number.

If you have students struggling with number sense, this comprehensive math intervention curriculum can be a great addition to your RTI or small group time!
