Egg matching game.

With Easter coming up in a few weeks I made an Easter egg theme activity that can be used in a variety of ways. I made several sets of cards to go along with the eggs for different age levels and skills. For my youngest daughter (age 2) I made cards with the numeral number on them and cards with shapes on them to match with the eggs. For my oldest daughter (age 6) I made cards with the written number word and written shape word on them. For her to practice reading in a fun way. I left the eggs uncolored for kids to color themselves depending on their skill level. After the egg cards were colored I then laminated everything for durability. You could print them on cardstock to make them less see through.

A game idea with the cards could be placing the egg cards face up and picking whichever set of cards matches the skill you want your child to work on. Placing those cards in a pile and having your child pick a card and place it on top of the correct egg. For example the number four would go with the egg that has four shapes on it.

Easter theme counting and shape book for early learners.

With Easter coming up in a few weeks I wanted to make something that would be appropriate for both my daughters (age 2 and 6). My youngest is currently working on her shapes and numbers. Although my youngest can count to 12 I’m trying to go beyond rote counting (remembering numbers) to rational counting (connecting numbers to their quantity). My oldest daughter is learning to read which takes utilizing countless strategies daily. Therefore I made an early reading shape and counting book to color that could be stapled together and turned into a book.

What really helps my youngest with rote counting are counting videos. We tend to dance to learning videos. As a way to get exercise in as we learn. It really helps her to learn, and get up and move around. My oldest daughter has always been a reluctant learner and struggles to pay attention and stay focused. It was a struggle for her to pay attention and memorize counting to 20. She started off Kindergarten struggling to count. It wasn’t until recently that she could make it to 120. Our dancing to counting videos really helped her as well.

Here is a list of counting videos we listen to the most to give you more ideas to help your reluctant learners or your eager to learn young learners…

*Jack Hartmann Grandma and Grandpa count to 120
*Jack Hartmann Welcome to the Zoo count to 120
*Count from 1-20

Stapled together, or could be hole punched and strung together.
