Cursive has some basic forms: lines (t, u, w, v, i), loops (b, e, f, h, j, k, l, p, q), humps (a, c, d, g, h, k, m, n, o, v, x, y, z). Of course, many of them are combinations of those three forms. There are also directional shifts and puzzling non-shifts (think f, g, q, z) Cursive requires stopping and starting within a letter (think a, c, d, etc.), crossing midlines which may not have been mastered (think, b, f, g, h, etc.) and recognizing beginning and ending (picking up pencil/pen and moving a space to start another word). When you are writing, you do not think about it at all, but a child must remember: sound-symbol association (letters and sounds and then within that, the correct letter combinations and in which order), letter and sound sequences (gril/girl and brid/bird are frequent errors for elementary and middle school (sometimes high school) students, and then letter formation. Without a lot of repetitive practice, guess what loses? Cursive writing.
Other activities for kindergarten include jigsaw puzzles. There are also worksheets that teach children about some biblical characters, and how to help a community. These activities are not limited to individual work. There are also worksheets that require a group effort to finish the task. This way, children learn to work in a team. This is a very effective group activity in helping them realize the importance of cooperation and teamwork. At a young age, kids are first taught to write letters in print only. When kids reach the age of eight to ten, they are taught how to write in cursive. They may find this quite difficult and boring at first. But one fun way to teach them this is to use worksheets also. Worksheets are now being used in most schools as they are proven effective in fostering a children has learning process. There were studies that show children responding better to worksheets compared to other boring and strict methods of teaching.
Also your kids can send happy birthday cards to friends. They come in five options to choose from the making friends feel individually loved and appreciated. Just think of sending a card with pretty animals, cones and cake, bunny duck drawings that not only look great but also are a source of learning as they can be used as instructional materials in school. Kids will have fun while at the same time learning to read and write.
As you already know, the study of phonics follows the alphabetic principle and the idea that each letter represents the different sounds of speech. Phonics worksheets can help children learn phonics and in turn the English language. Children first learn the sound a letter makes, for example a, like hat and bat. They then learn that that letter is called A. After learning the sound of the first letter they will combine two letters, for example they will learn b as in bat and ball and then they will learn bl to say blue and so on.
Kids love to get their hands into things. Whether you are planning a science experiment or teaching a new math concept, giving children the ability to use their hands to learn gives them another view on the topic. Using more than one sense allows children to really get into what they are learning. Even kids who do not require hands-on techniques to understand a topic will enjoy the hands-on learning you provide.
If you want your kids to experiment then get them birthday printables, they are not just easy to access but easy for your kids to work with as well. They would help enhance your child hass desire to explore their creativity and at the same time learn valuable lessons about kindness and sharing with their friends during birthday parties. Getting birthday printables will also save you some money, and are a much better option rather than going for readymade ones from the market shelves that your kids will not be able to customize. What else could be better than getting something that will help your kids get creative and also save you some money?
