(I still used the letters, number, shape, and color worksheets offered in my monthly curriculum kit by Funshine Express. And I am saving the theme I didn't use this month: Music, for next month!)
One "life skills" station was sorting silverware.
Another station was cutting- and we were clipping coupons. You might laugh- but they really enjoyed this! In fact these two kept sneaking back to this station- even when it was their "free choice" time to play with toys!
So "clipping coupons" any kind of cutting really- is a useful skill. It doesn't really matter what they cut- as long as it keeps their attention and keeps them motivated to try and cut on the lines.
We also have talked about setting a table. They made some placemats that show the proper sequence of where the plate-fork-knife-spoon-napkin and cup are set. That was a paper I down loaded- from this website here.
I am going to laminate them- and then next week we will practice how to set a table.
All this- is leading up for THANKSGIVING!
