Construction Theme Plans

August is my favorite month of activities! Jake loves all things construction so this month, his birthday month, I spend on all construction themed activities. Now don't get me wrong he loves animals, farming, the beach and all the other themes but construction is his favorite! Which makes it my favorite as well! You will see how much fun teaching is when the child is really into it!
Let me 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 a 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!

Hope you enjoy this month as much as we will!
