Pre Kindergarten Spring Activities

This post features phonemic awareness activities, emergent reader and worksheet activities related to spring. In the last few posts we focused on why it is important to include “phonemic and phonological awareness” activities within your lesson plans. Since the “Spring” theme focuses on rhyming, we will continue with this focus and more activities related to Spring.  Within the theme unit you will find many rhyming picture cards that can be used to develop the concept of rhyme further through playing games.

NEW VIDEO

The video below demonstrates how the pictures were transferred into making a Smart Board game which has been newly added to the theme unit.

  1. Your games and lessons plans are fine, but U need something that will teach a child that I am trying to get ready for kinderdarten. He does not know the color of the sky, becuase he does not know colors, shapes, nothing of ABC’s. I am working with him. We are trying to teach him to hold a pencil. He gets so confused!! Next week I am going to have him color using crayons, asking him simple instructions, use any color you want, then that will show me which hand he likes to use then instructions on how to hold a pencil. Usually I bring a puppet with me, that usually brakes all barriers. It is SAD that parents do not pay any attention. I read to my sons every night and taught them how to read. The world has change so much. I teach in a corporation school and find that the kids do not have times to be kids. They jump from lesson plan to another. Any ideas please forward.

  2. You are doing a fantastic job in preparing your child for kindergarten.
