Speed Play

The following flashcards should be shown once a day for five days. Flash one card per second. Refer to the post Right Brain Activity: Speed Play for full details.

Vocabulary

Culture

Sight Words

Science

Art


Math

Reinforce the concept with counters or an abacus. Show and count quantities from 1 to 10 with physical objects.

You may also refer to Shichida’s Math Program or use the BrillKids Little Math program if you have the program.


Eye Training

Follow the eye training activity outlined in Right Brain Activities: Eye Training. Begin with the simplest card and practice for no more than 1 minute. For the first week, stay with the same card.


Music

If you have the BrillKids Little Musician Program, I would encourage you to use that for this section because it is a great program covering many aspects of music. Alternatively, refer to our Right Brain Activities Music Play post to introduce:

  • One musical note – begin with C (sing it, play it, listen to it, feel it)
  • A musical instrument – e.g. the Piano (listen to “C” on the piano). Learn about the piano:
  • A famous composer – e.g. Bach (listen to a musical piece in the Key of C by Bach – e.g. Prelude in C Major)


Physical

These are suggestions for easy physical activities you can help your child follow along to. Infants can move in the arms of adults. If your child finds certain songs more engaging and would prefer to repeat them, that is fine, too. You can also create your own physical activities or follow a program like Brain Gym. The key here is large muscle movements and motor coordination.


Manual Dexterity

Many children today find it difficult to learn how to write because they do not have the physical strength in their fingers to manipulate a writing instrument. Encourage physical play at a play-ground to build the large muscle groups, while developing manual dexterity and fine motor skills with the following activities:

  • Day 1: Play Dough – Encourage your child to squeeze, stretch, pinch and roll “snakes” or “worms” with the play clay. Up-cycle your kitchen utensils and introduce the rolling pin, garlic press, and cookie cutters!
  • Day 2: Sand Play (or flour play) – Write letters or draw pictures. If you have kinetic sand, build structures with it!
  • Day 3: Water Play – Practice pouring water with jugs; squeezing water out of a sponge; use eye droppers to transfer water or mix coloured water together.
  • Day 4: Painting – Finger paint, Batik painting, let your child get messy while learning how to apply paint with a brush or hands.
  • Day 5: Lego Construction – younger children will find it easier to use Duplo blocks. As their finger dexterity improves, you can slowly migrate to Lego pieces as they present a greater challenge for dexterity.
