👉🏼 Remember our Sight Words Stamps we launched last year? These nifty stamps are designed to help your emerging reader to memorise these high frequency words as a whole by sight, so that they can automatically recognise these words without having to use any strategies to decode them. . . 🎉 Good News! We’re launching our Sight Words Stamps Pack 2, with more frequently used words. Combined with Pack 1, there are so many more possibilities for forming phrases and sentences. Look out for them soon! #sightwords#playandlearn
En estos días hemos estado pintando el patio del colegio Reyes Católicos de Melilla con los peques del cole. Hacía tiempo que no pintábamos una pared tan grande y ha sido una experiencia divertida y a la vez intensa...y los peques han demostrado ser grandes artistas! El dibujo plasmado en la pared es el resultado de unos talleres que realizamos en el cole antes de pintar la pared, y en los que pedíamos a los estudiantes de crear paisajes con cartulinas y colores...pronto podremos más fotos del proceso!
🌈Sprinkle Number Rainbow Counting🎉! (Click the link in my bio and search "sprinkle numbers" to get a set🛍️) Number recognition and counting has never been so colorful or fun🤩! I made these sprinkle numbers a while back after getting a bizillion requests for them and have been waiting until this week to share them with you 🌈💖! . 👉I waited until this week because currently, I am guest hosting @the12weeksof and the theme is: RAINBOWS 🌈! I want to see ALL of your rainbow-y fun and will narrow down my favorites on Sunday. To participate in this week's color filled week, all you have to do is: 1)be following myself, @resolvetoplay and @littliesactivities 2) Use the #the12weeksofspring on your rainbow play ideas and that's it!😘💖🎉
✂️✂️Learning to cut using scissors develops your child’s fine motor skills and coordination. Because they are developing muscles they haven’t used in this way before, it requires lists of practice. Be patient and encouraging as you help them learn tongues scissors ✂️ ❤️ #finemotorskills#learningwithfun#prek
Nora is NOT into the sandpaper letters — the complete opposite of Lila at her age, who gobbled them up almost faster than I could present them. Nora wants to skip ahead to the movable alphabet, so I’m adjusting it to her needs and abilities. I went through my pink series cards and pulled out just the ones with letters whose sounds she already knows. Then I set up just the letters she would need to build them, and we got to work. Nora’s totally a visual learner — she even noticed that all the words had a red letter at the beginning and end with a blue letter in the middle. #momtessorilife#followthechild#montessorilanguage
Gm ☀️! I am so excited for today’s activity y’all 👏🏼!!! Last night I put together a Easter themed table for our little sweet pea 🐰. And the best part is that there is a special surprise inside each egg 💓 I’ll be reusing everything in today’s table throughout the next few weeks for other Easter themed activities (and saving them for future math activities that I’m already dreaming up) plus we’ll be using the “grass” & eggs on Easter Day so I don’t feel guilty about some of the shopping that took place these last weeks 😉 We have a busy morning so I don’t plan on actually introducing the activity until later in the day but this morning we will be reading a Easter themed book (maybe two 😉) and cuddling with a few of her favorite cuddlies 🐰 #preschoolathome#playathome#learningthroughplay#toddleractivities#sensoryplay#invitationtoplay#everydayplayhacks#playhacks

Turns out we’ve been fooled by the sun shining and it’s actually freezing outside and our coats are in Kael’s car. A quick think, a rummage through the toys and I built a small world that’s taken over the playroom! We haven’t had the trains out for a while so we got the tracks and went to town! I added some green felt to the @wobbelboard to use as a grassy bridge going over the tracks, some rocks at the back, our @grimmswoodentoys pebbles, rainbow, and rainbow house, small wooden houses, artificial grass, felt for the sand and mud area, animals, and a little blue sheet for the water at the bottom of the waterfall at the back! I love how you can use anything and everything to use when creating a small world scene! They’ve been playing with it for hours and Margot hasn’t pulled any of the tracks apart yet! Huge win! I’ve got some things to make and build over half term that will be great for small world and I’m quite excited about it! Anyone else love building and getting the power tools out as much as I? I’d love my own workshop!
🦜 Berries for the Birdies 🦜 I set this up while Isla slept today with the idea that the felt balls could be used as birdie berries, the rainbow for a potential colour match & stacking bowls / tweezers for potential sorting / transferring.... unfortunately both kids woke up in a rotten mood, the bigger one in need of a playground/ big outdoor space... This activity is now set aside for tomorrow! 😂 #kmartplaytray
(This is NOT an ad) This is just some good Momma advice. We cannot recommend the little craft sets from @sainsburys enough. We love them in our house. Today, my eldest Moose completed his very own solar system mobile that he received for Christmas this year. These sets are simple enough to complete mainly in their own, fun, interactive and really easy to follow. The outcomes aren’t always picture perfect but that’s because the child can take total free reign with them. Honestly, we love them. We have many of them and they are often used to kill a quiet hour! . . . . #mommamoosediaries#learningthroughplay#crafting#capturingthemoments#reallife#candidchildhood#childhoodunplugged#simplechildhood#foreverlearning
Less Really Is More ... The less a toy does the more a child does ... the more we see their imagination shine. . . . Don’t get me wrong we have our fair share of battery-powered, light up, noise making toys ... but the days I see my kids sitting Around playing with their blocks, building forts out of every pillow and blanket in my house are the days I cherish sitting and listening to their tiny voices and giggles as their imaginations run wild!!
And that’s exactly what Years 5 and 6 did last Tuesday! We visited @thebritishlibrary_ to learn more about cartography. Libraries let children question things about the world and help them to find the answers. That’s why we always encourage our pupils to use the library - a true ‘chamber of secrets’ waiting to be explored!
Scotty is having so much fun building the magnetic race track from @picassotiles. Magnetic tiles make it easy for him to create the track in multiple ways. He has a blast watching the vehicles go around and up and down the track. Scotty is engaging in imaginative play, STEM building, and creative play with this set. Magnetic tiles are great for working on critical thinking, problem solving, fine motor skills, creativity, language skills, geometry, hand-eye coordination, color recognition, sorting, patterning, and imagination. All while having fun #learningthroughplay. The perfect #educationaltoy for kiddos brain development. * * 🚗 🚗 This set comes with 2 LED light up vehicles that each take one AA battery. The Race Car Track Building Block Set is recommended for ages 3 and up. * *Link to the toy below🚗 🚗 🚗 #greeneclecticmamablog#toyreview#magnetictiles#kidsactivities#handsonlearning#kidsfun#playideas#stemeducationforkids#stemlearning#playbasedlearning#kidsactivitiesblogger#kidsactivitiesblog#beautifullymixedkids#contentcreator#discoverunder50k https://www.amazon.com/PicassoTiles-Building-Educational-Construction-Coordination/dp/B07MWGZKCB/ref=as_li_ss_tl?s=toys-and-games&ie=UTF8&qid=1549523627&sr=1-4&keywords=magnetic+tiles+race+car+track&linkCode=sl1&tag=promo0cd-20&linkId=ee64fff34f3388117e42a47f386a4bcf&language=en_US
Sage can climb up our bar stools and sit on top of the kitchen island now. (He does it so quickly and quietly!) So we’ve been making lots of trips to the playground and indoor obstacle courses with couch cushions to satisfy that climbing need 🐒
Tuesday evening fun with my little man enjoying the all new ‘Story Box’ - enchanted forestland by @thestorymerchants . . We loved this one especially because you don’t just have to tell the story , you can actually show it on the storyboard! While we recite the story to our kids they can actually act it out with the wooden characters which helps build their vocabulary, aids language development and oral fluency as it encourages them to make up their own stories using the board. . Besides this the story board also functions as a board game which took me back to my childhood and reminded me of the evergreen game we used to play, snakes and ladders! This parent- child activity really helps me bond with RV! Check out more on my stories ❤️ . Now use my code- MOMINLOVE21 to get a 21% off on any purchase till 30th March.
