The 2011 school year is well under way and I’m sure most everyone has already picked up many needed supplies for the season or if you’ve just started homeschooling like myself, you may be picking things up here and there for your classroom. If you are, I’d like to recommend checking out Learning Resources. This company offers so many wonderful products for helping you teach the children in your life!
A must have product in my opinion from Learning Resources is the Let’s Tackled Kindergarten set that I’ve begun to use with my preschooler. This set comes in it’s very own storage tackle box. The box itself is heavy duty and it’s fantastic in keeping your supplies organized! It has a helpful sorting tray and durable handle.
The items in this set are geared toward ten essential kindergarten readiness skills using the bases of manipulative-based activities which are social skills, personal well-being, listening and speaking, fine motor , gross motor , reading, handwriting, math, thinking and problem solving as well as creativity.
Inside the tackle box you’ll find double-sided photo cards, stacking cups, plastic links, bean bag, foam dot dice, attribute blocks, uppercase letters, lowercase letters, numbers, pet counters, write & wipe board, sticker sheets and 24-page Activity Book with progress tracking checklist.
I like that the 24-page Activity gives you ideas on how to use the items in the set. For example in the Listening Skills category one of the suggestions reads as follows; “Put some of the plastic letters in one of the stacking cups. Have your child pick out one letter. Have your child say the name of the letter and the sound it makes. Have your child say a word that begins with that sound”.
This is a great set and I know we are going to get tons of use out of it in not only the coming months but years as well. This set is recommended for ages 3 – 6 and know that you’ll get as much out of it as you put into it.
