We took their trays downstairs and the girls took turns arranging the items on the photocopier:
They really worked hard at their activities and had a good time. These mats could also be used for an I-Spy game, practicing phonemic awareness, learning shapes, numbers, and letters, and many more creative activities. Best of all it didn't take any planning on my parts and used items we already had around.
I'll have to remember to use my photocopier more often to create activities for the kids - I can see it being a handy little tool that bridges the gap between hands-on manipulatives and worksheets.
