Apple FUN for kindergarten!


 My kindergartner is going to school during the day, but I want to continue to make learning FUN at home.  Since our tot-school theme of the week is apples, we kept the same theme =)  I made this bulletin board using construction paper and Velcro. I use staples to attach the Velcro to the apples as glue will just peel off.  We can "pick" the sight word apples off the tree.  The kids also liked hiding the apples around the house and sticking them on the tree as they found them, saying a sentence using that word.

We had a "big kid" book club where a group of 4-5 year olds got together and read apple stories.  I just bought the collection of books from Scholastic called "A Season of Sight Words." and Elly has been reading all 7 books on her own every day this week.  We shared these books at book club and brought a sight word memory game for the kids to make and a coloring page for the younger siblings.  I was surprised that the kids just wanted to make the game, but not play it.  They were more interested in hiding the construction paper apples that were labeled with numbers 1-10, finding them, and putting the apples in order!  My goal was to get them working and learning together, so even if they did it with another activity - SUCCESS!

  2. What a clever idea. Even though my little ones are back in school we still do a lot of fun learning and crafts at home as well.
    Thanks again for sharing this great interactive idea at my "All Things Wonderful Wed. Link Party" and I hope that you will come back again this week.

  5. I love the tree! We have a store-bought sight word bingo game and my kids love playing it. Maybe next time you all get together the kids will want to play the game they made. :-)

  6. This is a cute idea! I should keep our sight words more visible to daughter. She can read them, of course, but spelling them is an entirely different matter :)
