January Monthly Activities- Snow Theme

Pin It

Happy New Year!
A new year is upon us and I am excited for some large strides this year! Jacob is really showing a lot of learning and I feel he is ready for so much more! Look for the start of a Letter of the Week this month! I am going to be adding Letter of the Week activities for about a half hour a day. Our Structured Play time has stretched to about an hour a day and now I want to cut that in half. We will do our Monthly Theme activities for a half and hour and Letter of the Week activities for a half and hour a day. 

I want to reiterate a few points before the download:
1. My plans are not meant to be completed in any specific order. Each day is different and Structured Play time should be a fun learning experience. Pick an activity or activities that fit the mood of your child for that day.
2. Practice activities more than once because repetition is key to gaining new skills.
3. READ, READ, READ- Read everyday and reread stories to allows your child to 'read' the books themselves. This is the first step in literacy.
4. Walk Away- Try to keep Structured Play time FUN. If things get frustrating to you or your child, walk away and pick up where you left off the next day. Remember it is Structured PLAY, you are not preparing for SAT Exams. Enjoy every minute!

  2. I was able to download September and Octobers plans, but now am having trouble with December and January. I haven't tried the rest. When I go to click on it, it takes me to google drive. Do you have any idea what that is and why it is doing it for these two and not the first two I tried? I am so thankful for these plans. I am a SAHM and I am preparing to start working with my 2 year old with structured play.
