Need to fill up about 3 hours with Pre-K activities...

She will be 4 in May and flies thru the worksheets for numbers and letters so I would have to print out 100 to keep her busy. Ideas?

  • She can make her own alphabet book. Use one page of construction paper for each letter and she can cut out pictures from magazines or grocery store fliers that start with each letter.

    Go on a hike and look at different things, flowers on one trip, birds on another, trees, weather. Visit the library to find out more about what you see.

    Puzzles and blocks are good, also playdough.

    Don't forget story time.

  • I would pick a topic of the week like the Polar Regions. Learn what animals are in the Polar Regions, where it is on the map. Make a craft with Polar Bears & Penguins with glitter & cotton balls. Then a snack. Worksheets. Exercize. Story Time. Then let her choose what she would like to do.

  • Why not some hands on projects. I like to pick a another mom was just talking about. So, if you do some worksheets on the letter "S", then I would find a story book maybe w/ a story about snow, make some paper snowflakes....or a snow globe like I described for the other pre-school activity question. If she is actually doing words, I might pick a word of the day. Or maybe do a nutrition unit. Do some worksheets on eating healthy, then have her plan a "healthy menu", maybe let her pick a recipe to make, read a story book about eating healthy. Often I find inter-active websites with activities for children to do online, such as picking healthy foods, etc.

    I wouldn't make all of the learning worksheets, pick a project, a story, other types of physical activites to do as well. Maybe even little field trips. We have a Marine museum down the street a train museum really close too. I did themes for those with a field trip
