Preschool Back to School Activities - Personalized Placements

Here is an idea for preschool back to school activities that is as good for you and your staff as well as for your preschoolers. This is a personalized way for you to get to know unique likes of your students and for their friends to get to know their classmates.

This idea was one of the hundreds sent to me recently. Try using this idea or modifying to fit your own situation.

It is a way to work on fine motor controls such as cutting and gluing. They can learn site words or how to identify their own names. Tracing letters reinforces alphabet skills as well.

Personalized Placements

I sent a paper placemat with the child's name written on the top. Parents work with children looking through magazines & ads, to cut and glue their favorite foods or just draw them on the mat. When they were returned, we laminated the placemats and each child uses his/her during meals/snacks. This works great with name recognition for everyone and while we're waiting for our lunch, we trace our names with our finger!
