Reinforcement is the key for the kid’s encouragement. Praise them if they can achieve writing their first number, even it’s as simple as writing number “1”. Continue the next step for the next number. Again, you can always make a demonstration for the tracing.
Although this activity is free, you can still accompany your kid to finish the project. Give an argument about the color that they should use. For example, if the picture is about a scenery, then you can go by saying that the color of the sky is usually blue. Your kids will understand and start making a progress by coloring the sheet using their creative ideas.
This also can be done by giving them an offer about the reward if they can finish the task. After done with the preparation, you can start instruct the kid to tracing the shapes. At this stage, you also can introduce the name of the shapes.
Don’t push your kids too hard. Take a break when they felt bored. You also can engage them to sing together during the break. Learning from home is actually challenging, yet can be a good activity that will bring a good impact.
Another method that can be done for introducing the number is by using the color by number worksheet. It’s actually a clever idea for using this worksheet.
This worksheet is actually simple. You can instruct your kids to follow the line and trace it. This needs a good concentration and coordination. That is why this worksheet is good for they who want to create an exercise for the soft motoric skill.
Similar with the alphabet tracing, the alphabet coloring also can be fun activity to do. However, the main purpose of this exercise is to introducing the alphabet.
A flower bucket, car or any other objects that usually can be colored without a standard. This will also enhance your kids’ motoric skill. Don’t forget to evaluate their project.
If coloring the area by matching the number is getting more complex, then a coloring worksheet can be an alternative. It will enhance your kids’ creativity by letting them coloring the picture freely.
It will also teach your kid to recognize the color. By using this way, there are more skills that can be achieved using a single tool. You also can be more creative by making a jingle during the tracing process. Your kid will see that this activity is fun and they will be encouraged to learn more about shapes, colors and traces.
Encourage them once they’ve done their first letter even they need an assistance. Repeat this process after they complete with the letter. Do not move to the next letter if they still need a helping-hand for the first letter.
The picture is actually simple. You can make an easy demonstration for the kid. Ensure that you also give a rule for the kid to keep their concentration on you.
