No plastic. Children this age are still integrating their senses (as you know if you know a child with sensory integration difficulties, as we did), and it is very helpful for them to be able to match up texture, weight, color and pattern consistently. Natural materials such as wood always look and feel the same; the child gets a consistent message. Plastics have dazzling colors and any number of strange textures and weights. Furthermore, natural materials are simply more comfortable for a young child. Dress-up area. Over here is a rack of costumes hanging, and a bin stuffed with crowns, boas, sashes, and capes. All costumes are made of cotton, wool, silk, and other natural fibers. Nature table. Children are forever finding treasures in nature: pine cones, rocks, feathers, flowers, shells of cicadas, autumn leaves. On this table they are arranged lovingly -- a sort of altar to nature.
I remember that with my Mom everything was somehow connected to math. She made me count the buttons in my shirt as she dressed me up, asked questions that demanded answers that are related to sums, like how many pair of shoes do you have? How many buttons are there on your Daddy has shirt? Count all the furniture in the living room and several math games. All my toys were one way or the other math related. I had puzzles, and tons of things Mom had me do as games on daily basis at home to get me ready for kindergarten! In fact, she continued guiding me towards being math friendly throughout kindergarten and first grade during which time 1st grade math worksheets was my constant companion.
Well made kindergarten worksheets can be interesting for children to do and can be of great use in reinforcing basic concepts. Completing the activity in a worksheet can give children an immense sense of accomplishment. Kindergarten ABC worksheets should have different activities to help children identify the various letters of the alphabet. The activities may involve very simple things like coloring, ticking, drawing a line to match items etc. Using attractive illustrations and cartoon characters would make it more fun for children. The activities should be graded, i.e initial activities should be very simple and easy (but should be fun with good pictures etc, so as to interest the child); later worksheets may involve a little bit more work.
