Pie tin games - a great hands on activity to teach abstract skills...all tucks away in a tidy box.
This packet targets vocabulary, reading comprehension, character traits, inference skills, executive functioning skills and visual discrimination. Woah - that's alot of fun in a pie box!
Title: I'll Read for Pie!
Draw me a messy and evil baker. Use your noggin to show what these character traits look like. Maybe even go a step further and show what kind of pie that character would make.
Match seemingly easy clues to types of pie, (example "I am red") but watch out - you'll need to use your memory bank (prior knowledge) to match the correct clue to the correct pie! Process of elimination at it's finest (you'll need your working memory here!)
This cute game fits into a standard bakery pie box and pie tin. Great for Thanksgiving.
You will need:
-a pie box,
-an aluminum pie tin,
-colored plastic chips (or colored scrap paper squares work too)
-plastic spinners (a whole set can be purchased on Amazon)
EARLY CHILDHOOD INFO:
Young children need to explore, but they also need to learn about boundaries and how to follow directions. A balance of free play and structured play is critical in developing the kinds of skills that will make them more flexible, resilient, and persistent. Daily engagement in these critical areas work together to create a “whole child”. Have Fun!
“Start Here!” was created in order to provide access to high quality researched based activities for parents, preschool teachers, and daycare providers.
The first years are a peak period for a toddler/preschooler and it is important to support the six domains of early childhood development.
I created and used these materials in my own career as early intervention practitioner. My aim is that all adults who care and work with children will be empowered by the information and activities. Everyone, when using best practice, can help kids reach their potential.
