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.
Just a very simple idea for quieter sessions. Pom poms are so quiet. Children get the pom-poms with chopsticks or tweezers. good for counting sorting and fine manipulative. Can be done individually or they could choose a number then race to collect.
