Letter Knowledge

Here is where the kids practice memorizing letter names and shapes. Check out the Farm ABC Flashcards to practice, drill, and memorize the ABCs. Read here to learn 20+ Games you can play with the ABC Flashcards. The word and Letter Wand is a great tool to find, identify, and practice learning and reading the letters in the world around us.

Phonemic Awareness

Phonics, as defined by Webster- “the science of sound”. Your pre-schooler learning letter sounds are actually sound scientists! Use the Farm Themed ABC flashcards to practice the letter sounds. This set I create here has the phonemic picture clue with each letter. Once those sounds have been memorized you can break out the CVC Word Building Mat. This tool is used to create word families. CVC stands for Consonant- Vowel- Consonant. The Farm themed Word Wall Cards can be used for looking at the beginning and ending sounds in words.

Pre Writing

Fine Motor Skills are at the foundation of writing. Before ideas can even begin to be share in written form little kiddos need to start with the physical basics.

Fine Motor

All the small muscles in the hands, wrists, and fingers are a part of the fine motor family. Choose activities, toys, and games that will develop those specific muscles. Puzzles, playdough, beads, stickers, and manipulatives. If your kiddo has built that muscle base they can start working with the writing tools- crayons, pencils, markers, scissors, etc. Check out my cool trace or cut the line printable. Grab up the Farm ABC Flashcards and Farm word wall cards- laminate and trace with dry erase markers.

Pre Math

Math learning will come easier later on in life if there is a strong memory of some super basic foundational math ideas.

Numbers and Counting

Put a heavy focus on the numbers 1-10. What do they look like and what do we call them. Grab the Farm Yard # Flashcards and drill, practice, play! Memorizing those numbers is the first step. The Farm 10 Frame # Line is all ready to help your little farmer count and create sets with farm animals, fruits, and vegetables.

Addition and Subtraction

Grab a 10 frame to start learning about adding and taking away from different groups or sets of animals. Use physical objects to show how number amounts are the same and different.
