A, Bee, C, Preschool: Building Shapes. Kindergarten readiness: Colored craft sticks are labeled with the number of sides each shape has, ie: 3 purple sticks - triangle. The children will choose a color and build the matching colored shape from the sticks.
Caterpillar Pattern Boards - Preschool math or busy bag activity and great addition to a unit on Eric Carle's "The Very Hungry Caterpillar". Great idea to use something like an animal to start a pattern and then have the kids extend it.
