My oldest daughter started 1st grade this year. As an educator and parent I look for other ways to teach besides text books and other mundane methods. One of my kids favorite ways to learn is by playing games. Games that are educational and that make an impact so that they remember what they learned. Learning Resources is a homeschoolers paradise. They offer not just games but learning kits, educational toys as well as other educational hands on products for parents, teachers and homeschoolers.
The All Ready For First Grade Kit is a a comprehensive collection of activities, hands-on tools, and more! Offering a fun friendly ocean theme includes first grade essentials conveniently bundled in a sturdy carrying case for learning at home or on the go. The Parent Guide is structured upon an easy-to-follow Ready, Set, Go lesson framework, which eases children into grade-appropriate subjects through engaging activities and games that progress in difficulty.
This kit prepared my daughter in several ways. For instance, this is the year she learns about measurement. I started her off with the 6 measuring fish. Instead of a ruler plastic fish are used to measure the jellyfish and after determining how many fish were needed she wrote down the correct amount on the easy wipe off book. Other activities included in this kit are 20 ocean counters, 10 double-sided word problems which allows children to use their thinking skills, 6 word family cubes that can be used for vocabulary or for sentence making, telling time with the write and wipe clock. All of these materials can be used multiple ways.
