My preschooler's day is mostly spent learning through play. At times, he does want to sit and "do school" as his big brother does. Thankfully, I came across something called an activity binder. An activity binder, or learning binder, is simply a binder filled with fun educational pages. In my case, I used a 1" 3 ring binder and created several fun worksheet pages for him to do.

Activity binders are great for handwriting practice, learning the alphabet, learning numbers, learning colors, developing motor skills, and more! It is a fantastic way to make sit-down learning fun. The activities can be personalized to fit the needs of the child. You can add educational activities according to what you want your child to learn, and not include things that your child already knows.
Why Are Activity Binders a Good Idea?
It helps develop your child's literacy, math, and motor skills.
Activity binders are easy to travel with.
It's easy to store.
An activity binder can double as record keeping.
It grows with your child.
It is completely adaptable to your child's learning needs.
I have been able to create several pages of activities for my preschooler, pages that work on his handwriting skills, spelling his own name, letter sounds and letter recognition, numbers, and patterns. I'm excited to share with you some of the worksheets I have created for the binder. I will be adding more to this list as I go.
