Learning Colors, Numbers, Letters for Very Active Kids

  • Perfect for homeschooling moms! Cut out colored circles and lay them on the floor in whatever pattern you choose, make a game of learning the colors by calling out a color and having your child run there as fast as possible. When they step or touch the correct color ask them something else that has that color. (For example: Green-a frog, grass, peas, an item in a picture, etc.)
    Do the same with numbers, to save paper, write a number on one side and another on the opposite side. When all the numbers have been learned, flip the circles over to learn more numbers! Also good for the alphabet!

  • Rules can be as you choose: simple enough for one or multiple children...
    1.) Keep hands to yourself and watch out for others (more than one child)
    2.) For any color, number or letter give an example
    -color: "Yellow...something else that's yellow is the sun"
    -number: "I see two stuffed animals in the toy box"
    -Letter: "the word 'penny' also starts with P"
    3.) Have fun with it!

  • This idea came up when many families I knew were reverting to homeschooling their kids because their local school system insisted on keeping kids at a desk all day with no break short of lunch and bathroom breaks. I know for myself I could barely do that and would need to move around SOMETIMES. This idea came about for my kids, I plan to homeschool and knew my boys would want to get all their "jitters" out. And, the most fun way you can learn to teach something really helps it stick mentally.

  • Hope you enjoyed the idea! Please like!
