After School Linky Party (9/16)

Welcome to the After School Linky!

Last week's party was full of creativity and fun!
If you missed it, here are just a few highlights.

(Science and play combine with this hands-on activity.)

(Paired with Alison McGhee's book Countdown to Kindergarten, Deirdre invented this great way to practice math [and letters] while lacing!)

Measurement Man at Playdough to Plato.
(Measurement conversions for gallon, quarts, pints, and cups are a mystery no more. Have kids make a measurement man to keep the equivalents straight!)

"A" is for Ambulance at There's Just One Mommy.
(Write letters on post-it notes and have your child drive an ambulance through every letter "a" to get to the hospital. Great kinesthetic activity and easily adaptable for older kids practicing any number of skills!)

(JMommyMom's hands-on way to learn the digestive system is so clever! A pair of pantyhose forms the esophagus and stomach. Kids will have fun squishing the food through!)

(This hunt uses kids' observation skills to find rotational and reflection symmetry. This takes a nature hike to a whole new level!)
