Today they announced on the news, that Ontario schools will be closed until May, amid the COVID-19 pandemic. It’s not an ideal situation for sure, and with my preschooler beginning this September, I want to ensure she is fully prepared – even if schools don’t begin by then either. My goal was to ensure she at least knows how to spell her name and write her ABC’s. I created this worksheet to assist other children as well in learning to write their name. My daughter loves doing her daily writing activities, and with the excitement that comes with learning to write her own name, she is definitely over the moon.
Below is a FREE worksheet for those lucky kids named ‘Chris.’ If you are interested in having a CUSTOM sheet with your child’s name – I can create this and send it to you for as little as $5. That’s right, education should be affordable, am I right? But in all seriousness, I understand the struggle many families are facing right now so I wanted to ensure the lowest possible cost for a custom job. $5, that’s like a latte! It’s also a gift that will keep on giving – as you can print it and re-use as many times as you want! Use the PayPal ‘buy now’ link below to purchase this.
In the meantime, if your name is Chris, enjoy this worksheet! If not, no worries just check out some of the other freebies I have available. If you know someone who can benefit from this, please share! Thanks.
No one said it was easy to raise kids. Preschoolers and toddlers are definitely harder to keep occupied and engaged in their activities. My own daily struggles with raising a preschooler, have resulted in searching for efficient ways to ‘get the job done.’ For the longest time, it was difficult trying to get her to do simple tasks like eating her vegetables, taking a nap to now ensuring she uses the potty often. Little minds need a little motivation to encourage them to do things that are generally part of their daily routine.
I created this Daily To-Do List to ensure that the basic routine is followed everyday – with a little help from some stickers or colouring as motivation. This worksheet is excellent if your little one needs that push to develop healthy daily habits. Each time a task is completed, get them to place a sticker on the circle for that day OR let them colour it in for extra fun! Personally, my daughter loves her stickers so we try to keep a different set for each day and then circle back to the beginning at the end of the week.
Give it a go with your little one and let me know in the comments how they enjoyed it. If you have any suggestions or requests for future worksheets/activities, send me a message – I love to hear from you! If you thought this was helpful, share it with your family and friends. Thanks!
As a mother of a preschooler, I know the struggle first hand trying to occupy their little minds and keeping them interested in an activity for more than 5 minutes. The current global situation with the COVID-19 pandemic has not helped our case, because now we have to engage them in school activities as well with the recent shutdowns.
My daughter loves going to school and learning, so I’ve designed a few resources to help her continue to grow through writing, colouring, cutting – using fine motor skills. Let’s just say, she is really enjoying herself and so is this mama with some extra time on her hands. Win-win. To help you parents out there as well, I’ll be sharing some free downloadable and printable resources designed by yours truly. If you like them, please share this link with family/friends! If you have any requests or suggestions – please leave a comment. Below is the link for the Animal Book Activity.
