The manipulative for this weeks is small toys. I couldn't resist making a play activity based on Adam's favourite small toy of all time - the toy car! we have very few shape adventures I decided to create a Learning Shapes With Toy Cars activity.
Magnetic number fishing, they add what they catch! As well as addition, develops hand/eye coordination, fine motor--I love this for magnetic letter fishing too! When they catch a letter, they say its name and sound.
Maybe a gNe for kids with really immature grasp patterns and dislike for colouring (but likes cars) Drawing with Cars ~ Marker Cars is a fun activity that merges art and play. A great way to get the nursery boys mark making!
