I recently met a women who started her own home based business for preschool aged children and you know how much I can appreciate Mommy Owned Businesses. She was kind enough to send my daughter, who just graduated preschool, a July box. The box came with 4 activities and a book and this box made for a wonderful trip on the ferry. If Anything Ever Goes Wrong at the Zoo is a Parent’s Choice Award Winning Book where Leslie becomes infatuated with the animals at the zoo. Her offer to take them all in “if anything ever goes wrong” has an unexpected and unusual outcome. My daughter really enjoyed reading the book which flowed nicely and kept her attention throughout. After reading the book we then started working on the related activities.
My daughter loves stickers and well lets face it what kid doesn’t? The stickers were of zoo animals so it was relevant and the children were given direction to trace the letter borders with their finger as a learning exercise and fill in the stickers inside, which I enjoyed for her because it was interested to see her spread the stickers throughout so they filled all of the space up and pretty evenly. Tip: Make copies of the worksheet and use it for Z related letter stickers.
My daughter loved the soft dice, and so did our neighbors on the ferry! This was a cute activity using some of the same principles as our games at home without all the baggage. It was nice that we got to play a game together which encompassed counting.
My daughter loves playdough. She really loved the idea of making a home for her animals. She did one on her own and then we did one together. The animals were too cute not to name and tell stories about them as we did.
And last but not least was a measuring activity where Sofia needed to measure how tall or wide an animal was. I measure some, she measured some; and then we lined then up from shortest to tallest.
