Here are some skills they can learn and practice with these fun printable Easter activities.
Preschool learners can practice number recognition skills as the count and identify the number of Easter bunnies, eggs, and chicks on each activity page.
One to One Correspondence
One to one correspondence is an early math concept adults often take for granted, but it’s essential for preschoolers to grasp this important idea.
Here’s an example: A child touches each toy in a row and says the number out loud for each toy he touches, “One, two, three, four…” This is a demonstration of his ability to count using one to one correspondence.
Imagine trying to solve more complex math equations without understanding this important concept and you’ll soon see why it’s a very important early math skill.
By counting the images on each line, your preschooler will get to practice early counting skills. It’s important for preschool learners to master the ability to count from 1 to 10 in order to be able to complete more complex math problems as their education continues.
Pencil Grip and Control
Good pencil grip and good pencil control are important fine motor skills that young learners can practice through coloring. Coloring is a fun way to build these essential early handwriting skills. By coloring the Easter buddies in these printable Easter math activities, your preschool learner can build pencil grip and control as well as concentration.
Coloring can help preschool learners improve their concentration skills as they focus on holding a crayon, filling in the spaces, and staying inside the lines. Coloring requires concentration and focus, so it’s great for skill building. Besides, coloring is a lot of fun too!
Hand Eye Coordination
This important skill is practiced in two ways with these printable Easter activities. First, preschool learners can practice hand eye coordination as they look at the images and count them while pointing with their fingers to each item or character. Then, your little learners will continue building hand eye coordination as they color the Easter buddies.
As many occupational therapists will tell you, developing good spatial skills is an essential part of early learning. It’s critical to many functional skills in handwriting: being aware of your body within the space, understanding lines, and staying inside the lines. Coloring is an excellent way to work on these areas with preschoolers.
Sometimes people wonder why it’s so important to practice handwriting. I get it. Won’t they just develop better handwriting as they age? So here’s the scoop on handwriting and why you need to practice this important skill with young learners.
Handwriting activates the brain because it involves more complex motor and cognitive skills. Ever been told to write something down in order to remember it? That’s why!
Handwriting also helps to build reading fluency because it helps young learners establish a visual perception of the letters on the page.
