At the math center, we practiced counting and number recognition to 16. Students count the pictures on each card, and then clip a clothespin to the matching number. When they flip the card over, a self-checking sticker shows them whether their answer is correct or not.
Since it is the end of the year, the students have had a lot of practice tracing lines and shapes. At the writing center this week, they are tracing the initial letters of many summer words. This has become an easy skill for most of them, so (without prompting) they also traced the rest of the word! Win.
At this visual discrimination center, the child looks at the four pictures and has to determine which one is unlike the others. This is a great center for young preschoolers because visual discrimination is an essential early literacy skill!
I hope that your summer is off to a great start! Have fun playing and learning with your children today.
