So this past week, I saw two similar activities that I really LOVED. The first one, is from Roots of Simplicity. She created a great gross motor reading activity by writing words on snowflakes and taping them to the ground (check out her post for details). Then, Emma at Mummy Mummy Mum linked up a very similar activity using dinosaur foot prints that I just had to feature this week at Thrifty Thursday.
Why do I love these activities? For one, they get kids UP AND MOVING while learning. Not only is this great for winter when we tend to spend more times indoors, but children really benefit from learning activities that are multisensory. And two, these activities can be adapted and tailored to target ALL kinds of objectives! Think about it…you can target letters, numbers, words, shapes, prepositions, basic concepts, irregular verbs, answering or asking WH questions…the possibilities are endless.
