I’ve been very excited about finding products that my daughter can completely engage herself into when learning. Some of the hands-on products I love to present her with are from Betty Lukens, a company that offers over 30 fun felt sets geared to children of all ages. Themes include animals & nature, science and learning, dress up dolls, bible stories, and so much more!
I’ve been using the Betty Luken Learning You ABC’s Feltboard Set to help my three and half year old daughter learn her letter sounds. This 13″ x 15″ set comes ready to use with over 60 pre-cut shapes, and it’s easy to store away at home or to bring along when traveling with it’s included plastic storage bag.
The board itself has the letters A-Z printed on it. The included full color pieces have images such an Apple to place on the letter A, Butterfly to place on B, and so on. What’s neat is that there is also the word for each image and each vowel has an image of it’s long and short letter sound!
This set has been a wonderful aid to begin teaching my daughter letter to picture matching as well as phonic sounds! I’ve even been working with her to start sounding out the words for each image. Some days I let her play with the set by herself and she’s been matching all the images to the correct letter and has been so proud of herself for getting everything correctly. There’s so many ways to learn and use this set, I say just let your imagination take you.
There’s nothing I don’t love about Betty Lukens products. They are toys and tools that are not just fun but educational too. These products are also very durable and will last for years and years to come. If you check out the website, you can find a fun free interactive felt set for kids to play with online!
If you are interested in purchasing a Betty Lukens Feltboard Set like the one I reviewed note that it cost $16.95, which I find to be a real deal! This is a set that will played with over and over again! Be sure to check out all the other products offered to find something perfect for use with your own children or church/school classroom!
