Dot Fun 2015 Calendar for Kids

Last week we shared our new Color & Trace 2015 Calendar for Kids.  Some kids aren’t ready for tracing but would enjoy having a calendar of their own.  I created this dot version for those kids! Use dot paint, or dot stickers, or simply color in the dots each day!

Learning ideas to go along with these printables ~

Calendar-3016

 

  • At the beginning of each new month, color the focus picture. If your child doesn’t like to color, color together…make it fun!
  • Each new day, dot paint the day, or use a dot sticker and talk about what day it is.
  • Practice counting each day up to the date.
  • Use 2 or 3 colors to create a pattern.
  • At the beginning of each month go through and mark the special days {holidays, birthdays, anniversaries or anything your family celebrates}.  Have your child decorate those special dates so you can look forward to them!

Don’t have Dot Paint {or don’t want to be messy with little ones}?  Use Dot Stickers instead!  Color Dot Stickers

Snowman Sequencing Printables

Snowman Sequencing Printables

Winter is just about here for those of us on this side of the world!  It’s snowman season for many already and I wanted to share these new snowman sequencing printables with you all.  I used two different sets of graphics and offered each as a color printable or a black and white version for your child to color!

There’s also a recording sheet for each set, to be used as a place for your child to glue them on.

Winter Fun Q-Tip Painting Printables

Winter Fun Q-Tip Painting Printables

I have a new set of Winter Fun Q-Tip Painting Printables for you! This set has a simple sentence describing the picture, so you could staple them all together to make a book!  The focus letter comes from a word in the sentence. Lots of fun winter printables to keep little hands busy.

S is for snowman, A is for angel, B is for Ball, H is for hill, G is for gift, T is for tree, S is for skiing…lots of alphabet fun, painting fun, and winter fun all in one!Winter Fun Q-Tip Painting


WHY use Q-Tip Painting Printables?

The big answer is fine motor skills! You’ll notice how we focus on not only the tiny dots, but also using small items in painting or adding to the dots. All of this works on hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills

The letter identification is a secondary bonus!

See ideas for using these here!
