1 – Problem Solving – Tic Tac Toe
It doesn’t get any simpler than this, but can you believe that I’ve never played Tic Tac Toe with my Four? This was a great chance to give him practice writing X’s while also teaching him some problem solving and strategy.
2 – Patterns – Finish the X Pattern
Another super simple activity — but again, it gets the handwriting and math in there together!
If you haven’t introduced subtraction to your preschooler, now’s a great time. Draw a set of items, tell him how many to “X out,” and count how many are left.
