As a former Kinder/1st grade teacher I can't help but feel the need to do "school work" with Blair over the summer. At first she was not interested but now she actually asks to do her school work with me. I think she enjoys the one-on-one time with her Mama. Those days are limited!
Carrie sent us an awesome Kindergarten Tool Kit to use with Blair and she loved it right away! The kit is designed for kids ages 2-6 years old and helps build a foundation for Kindergarten.
The Kindergarten Tool Kit includes a spiral bound notebook with mini lessons and assessments, color/shape flashcards, upper/lower case flashcards, number flashcards, sight word flash cards, chalk, eraser, and a white board and pen (Blair's favorite part!).
The lessons are short and easy to understand which made our time together fun instead of frustrating. All of the items are simple and clean in design so Blair wasn't distracted and could just focus on her learning. The tool kit does a great job of directing parents (or whoever is helping) in breaking down the content for kids so it's not overwhelming.
When we were finished with our lesson for the day Blair wanted to write her name on her new white board over and over. At night I can hear her telling her Baby, "B-L-A-I-R. Blair." It's pretty cute and I'm thrilled that she's enjoying learning so much.
I highly recommend the Kindergarten Tool Kit and Carrie has graciously offered all of you a code so you can try it at a discounted rate! Use code THANKS10 for $10 off your order at checkout. Happy learning!
