Spider Eye Sensory and Fine Motor Activity Pre-K Math
Summer is already almost over! I can’t believe it!
As fall approaches, I always think of back to school and Halloween as the weather cools and the leaves change. This Spider Eye activity is meant to incorporate both of those things. I am busy planning our home school pre-school activities as my eldest gets closer to age 4. Some of things I hope to incorporate in every unit of our homeschooling day are sensory activities, fine motor activities, basic reading, and basic math. This activity checks all of those boxes! I also created an extra unit for color association.
Itsy Bitsy Spider Learning Sensory Bag
My daughter has a speech delay. I know she knows all the words, she just gets frustrated and loses focus on bringing them out. One of the best ways to get her to use her words is to associate those words with singing. When she’s singing, she forgets all her frustration and nerves and spouts words out perfectly. Nursery rhymes have been key to her speaking progression. These spiders were originally inspired as the Itsy Bitsy Spider but as Halloween approaches, they’re a great way to incorporate the fun into into our lessons, as well as the singing!
Halloween Themed Pre-K Math Activity
Use this printable to help your child count googly eyes to match the number printed below each spider. Each numbered spider has both the numeral and the sight word printed below it. Spiders can have anywhere between 0 to 12 eyes, so they make perfect counting examples!
One page of this free printable has the sight words of the 4 primary colors. Use this page to encourage your child to sort colored googly eyes.
