What a fun week this has been so far! I’m so proud of you. Are you excited that you’ve been having fun with your child this week??? It totally pays off with a shift in attitudes in our house.
Today’s activity challenge is a gross motor activity to get the kids moving! These are my favorite types of activities.
Here’s today’s gross motor activity with a learning twist: Letter Stomp on the Stairs
Write a letter on a sticky note, several of the same, a few different letters. Stick the sticky notes on the stairs, two or three per step. Stomp on a letter to find them all!
You’ll need a few supplies for this one – sticky notes, markers, stairs or an open area
Here are some tips for this activity —
- Stick to just 4 or 5 letters to begin with.
- Build confidence by using 3 letters your child already knows and add in 2 more to work on
- Write the number you have of each letter in the corner of each sticky note as a cross-checker for your child
