When we show children that learning can be exciting, it can inspire their ability to think outside the box.
It also introduces them to important skills they can take with them for the rest of their life! Teaching them how to count or learn the alphabet can be done by having more fun. Here are some activities we can do with them.
Counting With Beads
Making a game out of counting is a great way to help children understand how to count. To develop their fine motor skills, we need some string and beads. They can place the beads on the string and count out how many they use. Afterwards, they can keep their creations as a bracelet or a necklace.
Counting With Hopscotch
Getting children up and moving is another way they can have fun counting. Drawing numbers on the ground in chalk and making it resemble a game of hopscotch can be helpful in teaching. When you call out a number, children can hop to the one they think it is.
Alphabet With Pipe Cleaners
This activity combines learning with art. We can help children use them to create uppercase and lower letters. All they need to do is bend the pipe cleaners to form the shapes of the letters. It’s a fun and memorable way for them to learn.
Alphabet With Music
Singing the alphabet as a group is an interactive way for kids to learn. But we can also take a step further.
We can help them associate the letters with names, animals, or insects and make it into a song too.
This method can help them remember what the letters are and what they mean.
