Today I pulled out a few pumpkin activities for EK to work on. The first was just a simple dot to dot I printed from a website online- EK connected the numbers, then dot painted the pumpkin- simple but fun. Next, she cut out a pumpkin shape I had traced on a folded piece of construction paper. We stapled the sides and she stuffed with the extra cut off. I taught her to cut a spiral and she drew the lines. Next was a pumpkin puzzle. Using the same pumplin pattern, she cut out a single pumpkin and then I drew lines on it for her to cut into sections. I drew only 4 for her- in K I would have drawn more. She then pieced it back together and glued down- adding triangles for face. She cut out her own stem.
EK really got a cutting workout today! :)
And for a little Handwriting practice... decide what you want to work on- today I wanted EK to work on her first and last name plus the letter H. I wrote the letters on a piece of copy paper with a line underneath. I put a large dot on the letters so she would know where to begin writing. I then stapled another blank sheet on top. She traced first and then wrote on her own on the line. She did a great job!
The last pic shows how proud she was of herself!
