Unplugged Activities

Dramatizing books

One of the most important and primary comprehension skills young children need is the ability to retell the important parts of a story they have read.  

After reading a favorite story, create puppets, or use dolls or stuffed animals to represent the story characters.  Your children can create their own theater and present the stories. Make a stage from boxes or tables, draw backgrounds, and add popcorn for snacks

Open a bakery or film a cooking show

Whether you are making homemade play-dough or baking brownies, you can turn it into learning and play. This develops fine motor skills, reading, measuring, and lots of imagination.

Play Store

Don’t have play food? No problem. Take some groceries out of the pantry and let them play. Kids will practice writing numbers, counting, money sense, sorting, grouping, reading, develop vocabulary, build oral language development by describing the exchange of objects using quantities and numbers. 

Kids can make price tags, receipts, signs, flyers, money, and more.

Use the opportunity to teach kids about new foods and vocabulary.
