Encouragement and learning ideas are two of my passions and I LOVE that you all are sharing both during the Preschool and Kindergarten Community linkup times each week. While being inspired is important for teaching, encouragement is needed so very much for each of us. Be sure to look through the links today too – stop by, read a few links, and encourage each other with comments! Have a great week!

Sew a Snowman

Thanksgiving Number Sort

 

Use the Thanksgiving Number Sort cards to have your child work on sequencing numbers from 1 to 20 or have your child sort the numbers by odd or even. If 20 numbers is too many, choose a handful of numbers and record them on the included mat {great handwriting practice as well}.

hula hoop clock

Little Log Cottage School shares a creative way to use a hula hoop to learn about clocks and the minutes in an hour. Such a great hands-on way to see time in the five minute segments.

math games to make at home

Need some simple math games that you can make at home? Check out Nicole on a Tuesday and pin a few ideas from her site! It doesn’t have to be complicated for it to be something your kids learn a lot from!

make your own pattern block boards

Homemade pattern block cards can be so simple to make (you don’t need a computer!). The Practical Mom shares a quick idea with you that will have you pulling out your pattern blocks and using them tomorrow!

DidDoList4

To-do lists can be a huge discouragement to moms (believe me I know!). While I’m all for knowing what needs to be done, sometimes it’s more important to focus on what HAS been done. If you read one thing for encouragement this week, visit Cutting Tiny Bites and see how a “Did-Do List” can change your life.

Rocket Ships, Viking Ships, and Foxes – Preschool and Kindergarten Community

Homeschool Preschool: Preschool and Kindergarten Community linkup at Homeschool Creations

Sometimes the titles of these posts crack me up. Preschool and kindergarten crafts and activities can be all across the board. I love how someone can be learning about Vikings, while another family is studying about fall and a fox! Just goes to show the wonderful flexibility we have with our kids and following fun leads when learning!

Rocket Ship Kid’s Craft

rocketshipcraft

Mommy’s Bundle recycled some various materials from home to make this fun rocket ship craft with her boy. The craft was inspired by Creative Galaxy, a new tv show for kids. Love how she extended the learning fun on something her son was enjoying!

Viking Ship Craft

Viking-Ship-Craft-for-kids

This Viking boat craft from Happy Brown House is all cuteness (but don’t tell the boys I said that). You definitely need adult supervision for this one, but the end result is fabulous!

Being a Yes Mom

Craft Time

If there’s one thing I understand, it’s the dislike that many moms have in the actual process (I’ll raise my hand and say I’m one of them). Royal Little Lambs shares their crazy craft day where she said YES to the mess and had a whole heap of fun (and crafts) to show for it.

Fox Puppet Craft

To go along with their fall learning and the book Fletcher and the Falling Leaves, Joyfully Weary made some fun fox puppets to go along with all of their leaf crafts. Super cute!

That’s the wrap up from last week – can’t wait to see what you all have ready to share this week.

Sometimes we forget how much we are REALLY doing with our kids and how much they are learning along the way. This post from Suzie’s Home Education is a great reminder and encouragement to the little things we do during the week (and the simple things we often forget).

If you’re looking for a way to add the scent of fall to your home and have a little sensory fun at the same time, you’ll want to make a batch of this pumpkin pie playdough.
