Preparing for Kindergarten

We have been kind of changing our focus with preschool. Suddenly my children learned their ABC's on their own. (Not quite sure how other then the Letter Factory DVD I mentioned in a previous post.) But they have them all down! So we have been working on getting ready for kindergarten...My kids really need to work on cutting...and it doesn't help that I have hid the scissors since the day they were born. (They have such pretty red hair!) So cutting is a new concept for them. I found THESE awesome scissor skills work sheets and my kids love them!

We have also been working on some fun crafts. We made these dangley hearts. All you do is cut strips on multicolored paper at different lengths, and staple them at the bottom. You need two equal size pieces of each paper, stacked in order, going out from ONE long white paper. Then just fold each set down and glue them together.

We've also been doing a lot of worksheets. I find it the best way to reinforce all of the letters that they have learned. Plus they think it is so much fun to have "homework!"

We've been working really hard on writing our names. My oldest has been doing it for awhile now, but my youngest, age 3, is just getting it. She did a mighty fine job here!
