I am a stay at home mom so this gives me the opportunity for more one-on-one time with my children. It is very important to me that they keep learning even when school is out or even know more then they have to before the next school year. So far all of my older 3 children are very smart, my 6 year old is in kindergarten and was the only kid in his pre-k class that knew how to tie his shoes. He was already learning to spell and read before kindergarten. I find it rewarding to my children to keep workbooks in the house and in their busy bags for when we are on the go. It keeps their minds sharp- and keeps them busy. I found a company that has workbooks that are geared toward just the younger kids; preschool ages and under. These books focus on a variety of skills such as language, fine motor, critical thinking and early math. Each book covers a different skill and has activities focused on their age group.
My youngest daughter is 2 and is going to be 3 soon so the workbooks that I requested is the ages 2+ AND the 3+. In this paragraph I will discuss only the 2+ age books as a whole. This group of 3 books each has over 80 colorful stickers (including reward stickers) and a wipe-clean game board. Each one focusing on different activities. The first books activities helps build focus, problem solving, and social skills. With activities such as; picture puzzles, counting games ad art projects. The second book helps to enhance reasoning, vocabulary, and creativity. With activities such as; cutting and pasting, tracing, and matching game. The third to build decision-making and fine motor skills. With activities such as; tracing, drawing, matching games and mazes.
This next group of 3 books is for the age group of 3+. Each book has over 80 colorful stickers (including reward stickers) and a wipe-clean game board in the back. The first book focuses on activities that enhances reasoning, vocabulary, and creativity. Activities such as; picture puzzles, drawing projects, and number games. The second book focuses on activities that boost decision making and fine motor skills. Activities such as; drawing, cutting, counting games and mazes. The third book has activities that build focus, problem solving, and social skills. Activities such as; picture puzzles, matching games, and art projects.
The age group for the 4+ is great for my son that just turned 6. He breezed by some of the activities but he had fun doing them nonetheless. These 3 books also have over 80 colorful stickers (including reward stickers) and a wipe-clean game board in the back of the book. The first books activities teach problem solving. early math, and pre-reading skills. With activities such as; picture puzzles, counting games, writing, and paper crafts. The second workbook enhances reasoning, vocabulary, and creativity. With activities such as; picture puzzles, number games, mazes and crafts. The third books activities promote focus, fine motor control, and school skills. With activities such as; mazes, connect the dots, and drawing & coloring (this is his favorite of the 3).
I am used to buying one book for each activity/subject so this is nice having them all in just a few books with some added activities. And a plus is that the kids really love doing them!
