Some Summer Knowledge Fun for Children

Here is a movement to fortify learning at home. The movement utilizes walkway chalk and materials you can discover outside. This article depicts how to utilize action for math practice and one for letter rehearse

School is out and summer is here. Your children will need to be outside dousing up the sun and natural air. Here is a movement that you can do with your preschool-matured tyke to strengthen math and dialect expressions aptitudes outside in the daylight. Keep in mind sunscreen and a cap!

Materials:

· Sidewalk chalk and a sidewalk or blacktop

· Stones, sticks, or any countable outside item.

Math Activities:

1. Write the numbers 1-5 using sidewalk chalk on the surface of your choice. Space them fairly far apart.

2. Have child trace and write the numbers around your examples using different colors of chalk.

3. Make dots representing the number underneath the number you wrote (three dots for the number three).

4. Ask child to get that many objects (sticks, stones, leaves, acorns, dandelions) to place under the number.

Language Arts Activities:

1. Practice writing child’s name in sidewalk chalk.

2. Go on a scavenger hunt for items around the yard that begin with same letter that belongs in the child’s name.

· Example: The child’s name is Trevor so you can find a Tree for T, Rock for R, Earthworm for E, Vines for V, Orange Flower for O, Rabbit for R. The child can place the item with the letter or you can draw a picture of it if that is not possible.

There are many ways to incorporate what your child is learning at school in your day-to-day life in fun activities. Make the whole world your child’s classroom and each lesson exciting.

Tips:

Before or after the activity it is a good idea to let the child explore on their own with the sidewalk chalk without much structure. This will encourage independence and creativity and will allow the child to relax and focus for the academic portion of the activity.
