Listen to Caps for Sale
Come along and listen to the story of a man with a pile of caps on his head and how he works to sell them, but decides to take a quick nap under a tree only to wake up to all of his caps missing. This classic story by Esphyr Slobodkina should be on your homeschool bookshelf! It is a story that begs to be read aloud.
Trace the Lines
Line tracing is great for building fine motor skills, fosters early reading skill development (moving from left to right) and can be used as cutting pages as well if you prefer.
Help the mischievous monkeys get to the hats working from left to right.
Cotton Swab Painting
Talk about the letter C and caps while your preschooler or kindergartner uses a cotton swab dipped in acrylic or finger paint to fill in the circles/dots.
This is an excellent activity that builds concentration skills, fine motor skills, color recognition, letter recognition and more.
