This week's theme is space which is always lots of fun. I made a space alphabet pick and cover activity for letter recognition and fine motor development. I printed the patterns on cardstock paper ... cut them out and then laminated them.
I made both uppercase and lowercase letter mats along with letter cards. In this activity the children pick a letter card and then cover up the same letter on the leprechaun mat. Play continues until all letter have been covered. You can use glass beads ... playdough ... pom poms ... buttons for the cover-ups. I have also created a black and white version that can be used with dot markers.
As of 2022 this activity can be found in the member's section. which is also where I have added a space fine motor cover-up mat as well as space number sequence puzzles.
It's space week and i made an alphabet match and clip which is great for letter recognition and fine motor development skills. I printed the patterns on cardstock paper ... cut them out and laminated them.
In this activity children match the space rockets and moons with the same letter and clip them together with plastic coated paper clips or clothespins. You can also do a letter sequence by having the children put the space rockets in alphabetical order and placing the matching moons on top.
As of 2022 this activity can be found in the member's section which is also where I have added a space number match and clip.
I made a space count and cover for math and number identification. I printed the patterns on cardstock paper and glued the space mats inside a file folder.
I cut out the number squares and cover-up circles and laminated them. I put self-adhesive magnets on the back of the circles to add weight to them which holds them in place better and also makes it easier for the children to pick them up. You can also use pom-poms and playdough instead of the cover-up circles.
In this activity the children pick a number card then count and cover the same number of circles on the mats. I recommend putting the two space mats inside a file folder to make a total of 26 circles to cover.
