I have been tutoring an awesome little guy 2 days a week this month. I am trying to do lots of fun and hands-on things that relate to real life skills. Here are a few highlights of the activities we have done together.
Vowel hunt with fridge magnets and a cookie sheet
Order the alphabet correctly (can be timed to compete against last time’s record)
Two-digit addition and subtraction with pebbles (ones) and twigs (tens) – great way to bring natural resources into math as manipulatives!
Fractions with licorice and chocolate bars – make math yummy
Went to the grocery store, picked out and bought items to make smoothies! They were dee-lish!
Nature scavenger hunt – something fuzzy
Love this activity, because it gets kids reading the clues and they are responsible for finding all of the items. You can make a list tailored specifically to things in your immediate area that kids can easily find.
