It is time for SUMMER BREAK and I know parents, as much as children are ready for SUMMER FUN.
Well, although summer means taking a break from the daily routine of school work and school related things, I am a true believer in mixing learning with fun.
Yes, you can have fun and learn at the same time, and it is my goal to make transitioning your child from Preschool/Pre-Kindergarten into Kindergarten painless. This is an exciting time. Your child entering Kindergarten and gaining independence along the way is a great reward.
I have some tips and activities that will help you achieve this milestone with fun.
To not overwhelm I will post an activity a day starting from June 1st until July 31st. You can pick and choose which activity to do with your child or you may want to be a rock star and complete all of the activities. As an incentive, I will be giving away “Tori Books, a Sight Word Learning Book” print addition. All you would need to do is Like the Blue Desk on Facebook and let me know how the activity worked out for you and your child.
Liking or subscribing to the Facebook page automatically enters you for a chance to win a sight word book, but adding your comments doubles your chances.
Some days I may feel overconfident and post more than one activity. These activities will help strengthen writing skills, letter recognition, letter sounds, number recognition, and sight word learning. Bonuses will include science projects and STEM activities. I will share websites, software, Pinterest activities, and books to integrate into your learning and fun time. The goal is to create a fun learning experience that will help your child prepare for kindergarten.
