We start Hopscotch by hopping on 2 feet (feet together, feet apart). When we master that we move to hopping on 1 foot (1 foot, 2 feet apart)
You can create a Hopscotch for your child by using foam squares, chalk on a sidewalk, or even SOCKS!! Share your inventive Hopscotch grids with us!
Variety is the spice of life so we’re sharing Hopscotch variations from Parents.com and Housing A Forest for you to try!
Check out this demo that pairs dribbling and spelling words for a quick easy learning ladder.
Household Learning Ladders
Use what you have around the house to make a Learning Ladder. Post-it notes and flashcards work well when creating ladders. You could also try taping an index card to a magnet.
Learning Ladders are a great way to address information your child is learning.
Learning Ladders can be created by using dry erase markers on the sliding glass door! Your child can get outside and enjoy some fresh air and sunshine while learning. (If the weather isn't cooperating you can do this activity from inside the house too.)
If you don’t have a lot of space, finding places to Alligator Crawl can seem overwhelming. In smaller classrooms, teachers have students crawl under tables or desks. Crawling under or through things naturally encourages children to stay low.
Having a simple S.M.A.R.T. course at home helps “get the wiggles out” and improves focus.
Take the course outside! Include many fun SMART activities you have learned thus far!
With the majority of playgrounds closed, find a hill to roll down!
