Back to School Countdown #22 - H is for Hand

In preparing your kids for kindergarten make sure to READ TO THEM! Its fun and so important in preparing them for school. A great blog called Walking By the Way has a section dedicated to reading to your child and learning the ABCs. For each letter there is a book and activities that you can do with your child to learn about that letter. 

My favorite example was H is for Hand. They suggest the book to read and then there are activities to decorate the letter H, or to use your hand to make an octopus, or a tree. The pictures below are cute examples. Check out the website to learn more and find ideas!

Don't forget that crafts allow children to use scissors and glue in an appropriate setting which can improve their fine motor skills. Have fun!
