In the past, I would say to Kylie, "It's time for school" and we would spend 10 minutes completing some worksheets from Summer Bridge Activities: Preschool to Kindergarten. She would love doing them and showing them off to her Momma at the end of the day. Now she has no interest in even looking at one of those worksheets.
So I've had to get more inventive and hands-off with regards to her learning opportunities. The latest system that works is to have some activities ready for her on the floor before she wakes up in the morning and again when she wakes up from her nap.
She puts together words from her alphabet puzzle. She sorts buttons. She traces letters fromABCs Uppercase Write & Wipe Flash Cards (Kumon Flash Cards). And she matches cards from one of these sets: Counting Match Ups, What Goes Together? match ups, Puzzle Moms And Babies.
It tickles me to watch her work on these projects by herself. She is so proud of herself once she has them done. And I think to myself, "School moment-- check!" Here are a few other ways she likes to play.
She loves to play grocery store. She hides her eyes and counts to ten as I put some plastic food on our couch. Then she puts the food in her grocery cart, telling me what each item is. Then she wheels her cart over to some of her stuffed animals and feeds them the food.
She likes to "mail" things by putting learning cards, business cards and magazine subscription cards into this mail slot. She likes to make cars and trains out of laundry baskets and fill them up with her stuffed animals. And of course, bubbles are still a daily favorite. I love to watch her
learn and play!
