Read and Stamp

Emily is so excited that she is starting to read so I thought that she would have a lot of fun with this read and stamp activity.

My dad found this Melissa & Doug Baby Farm Animals Stamp Set at our Church’s White Elephant Sale last year for a really great price.  I tucked it away and thought it would be the perfect thing to use for this activity.

  IMG_0061First, Emily read the directions.

Emily was so careful to pick the right stamp, the right color and to count as she was stamping the animals throughout this whole activity.  She did this whole activity on her own.  When she had trouble with any of the names of the animals she looked at the stamps that she did not use yet and made the sound of the first letter of the name to help her figure it out.

This activity can also be done with farm animal stickers.  I just noticed that I have a set in my sticker box, so I might try it another day that way!

Now the question is do I pin this under math or reading?

fun idea - we have tons of stamps and I should do something like this with them.

Thanks for linking to the Sunday Showcase & hope to see you again next week.
