Tips for At-Home Learning
With the difficulties with learning in general during this stressful time, even the best student can be a reluctant learner. Make learning fun by only doing a page a day. Incorporate funny farm songs before or during spelling time. Play board games with farm animals throughout the week and spell out words in their spelling list as you play. Kids learn best through play!
Spelling and reading skills help develop overall literacy. Have fun spelling with these tricks just for Pre-k kiddos! Find fun ways to include spelling words in your everyday play.
- Bring out playdough and have the kids write the letters in the playdough with a craft stick. Or they can roll cylinders and bend them into the shape of letters.
- Pour sand, glitter, sugar, salt or flour into a shallow pan and let them spell the words in the sensory bin.
- Spell the words on a board or Fridge with magnetic letters on one side. On the other side across from the correctly spelled word, mix the letters up and have them correct the mixed-up letters.
