Activities for Distance and Virtual Learning

Starting back to school in 2020 feels very uncertain for many students, teachers and parents.  If you are familiar with the program Boom Learning, these activities can help you whether you are a classroom teacher or a parent seeking lessons that are fun and engaging.  These boom cards provide foundational skills for Preschool.  Although I have labeled these activities for PreK, they can definitely be used for Kindergarten as well.  
These activities are listed on the Boom Learning website as well as on Teachers Pay Teachers.  The activities can be purchased individually or as a money saving bundle.
Here is a look at all of the skills practiced:

Healthy Habits Bulletin Board and Craft

Going back to school will be different this fall.  The district that I live in is looking like it may be virtual only for the entire year.  If in person instruction does return, I am sure social distancing and other precautions will be put into place.  
I made this craft and bulletin board set that can be used for those that do return Back to School.  These activities can be used after read alouds or lessons that discuss healthy habits.  These activities are great for using in addition to lessons on personal hygiene and self care.  There are several different children craft toppers plus 5 different styles of picture/writing paper plus a name craft.  There are also bulletin board letters included that read "Healthy Habits".  This craft is fun to use at the beginning of the year as well because scissor practice is incorporated.  This set makes an adorable bulletin board once completed.

Color Word Printables for Fall

Are your students learning to read color words?  These printables have a fall themed background such as pumpkins, squirrels, sunflowers and apples, but can really be used anytime throughout the school year.  These worksheets are no prep.  Simply print and then add the sheets to your centers, stations, morning work, sub tubs or send home for practice.  Students read the word in each section and then color.  The printables review color words while strengthening fine motor skills as well.
You can find them in my store here.

Scarecrow Craft and Bulletin Board

I absolutely love these scarecrow crafts for fall!  These crafts are super easy to prep and complete.  Students simply color a boy or girl scarecrow topper and then cut them out.  Then students can complete the name practice activity or the writing.  If using for a name craft, students will just need to color the crows and then write 1 letter of his/her name onto each crow and then cut and paste them in order onto the scarecrow topper.  The writing can be used as a follow up activity to a scarecrow themed read aloud or for students to describe things they love about the fall.
Bulletin board letters are also included that read, Crowing About Fall.  These activities make an adorable display for hallways, classroom doors or bulletin boards once completed.  To see everything that is included just click on the picture below.
