Start with these hand and body warm-ups: gross motor
Then pick one of the following:
1. Write a short story about your snow day with at least 3 sentences (for a third grader). Be sure to hold your pencil using the tripod pencil grasp. Edit your story using this handwriting checklist. Use the letter chart if you need help with forming your letters. Feel free to draw and color a picture too!
2. Play a card game or a board game with a parent, friend or babysitter. Ideas include: go fish, connect four, checkers, mancala, boggle, scrabble junior, jenga, topple. Write down the name of the game, names of the players and score.
3.Complete any written portions of your classroom Blizzard Bag assignment using your very best handwriting. Hold your pencil correctly, form your letters neatly, use big spaces between your words and make sure that your letters sit on the lines correctly. Use these letter formation charts to help you: upper and lower case letters.
4. Create a list, numbered 1-10, and write down ten types of furniture found within your home or ten objects of the same color. Use the letter page for help if you forget how to form numbers and letters correctly--remember 'top down' for most letters/numbers. Don't forget to use the tripod pencil grasp also.
6. Complete a 8-word winter word search (easy or medium difficulty) or winter dot-dot.
DAY 2: Pick an activity from each list that you did not do on day 1.
