Happy Friday! We are so excited to be sharing our favorite books, curriculum, resources, and supplies that we use to homeschool! Each Friday, we will be sharing products we love to use in our own homeschooling adventure. Enjoy these homeschooling items that we can’t live without….and you shouldn’t either!
This Friday, we want to share our favorite enrichment activities for active learners. When cold weather moves in, why do the days seem endlessly long, especially if you have kids who are kinesthetic learners? They need to move and be active! Today we are helping you add to your arsenal of activities to keep those kids moving (and learning). The games we are highlighting are perfect for your high energy learners!
Learning Resources Math Mat Game is the perfect way to take a break from any seat work and get their bodies and minds moving! This interactive floor mat has a variety of challenges that teach
numbers, counting, addition, and subtraction up to 20. Lots of movement as your kids hop from number to number while answering questions to math problems. Not only are you practicing math skills but listening and large motor skills as well. It is always a hit when we
pull it out!
Swat a Sight Word is a great way to practice reading sight words while burning some energy. The “bugs” contain Dolch sight words and are colored-coded into four different levels. As words are called, the first player to swat the bug gets to keep it. Not only are you working on reading fluency but also listening skills and motor skills. A great game to actively learn.
Bonus Tip: Need a bit more action to burn some extra energy? Spread the bugs out across the floor, and as you call out a word have your kids stomp or jump on a bug!
These games are a tremendous way to have our kids get up and moving. We hope that your kids will find these games as fun as ours have. You will want to be sure to check out our other Favorite Friday picks!
