Help kids master letter sounds and build a solid foundation for literacy with this extraordinary wooden play set! The possibilities for learning are unlimited--but the activity itself is simple: place a letter sound in one of the play board wells and fill the others with pictures of words that contain the sound. Three wooden play boards (one for beginning sounds, one for ending sounds, and one for middle sounds) set the stage for learning, with four recessed wells to fill on each board. But the real stars of the show are the 40 rectangular picture tiles and 31 puzzle-shaped letter-sounds tiles--shaped to fit the wells and guide letter-sounds learning, they're wonderful manipulatives for finding relationships between familiar words and letter sounds. Each tile is filled with information, so kids can discover how to say each sound and which words contain it; begin to read the words or just rely on the clear, cheerful illustrations to encourage vocabulary and speech. The set was developed in consultation with education experts and includes helpful teaching tips for caregivers, as well as helpful hints on tailoring game play to any age. It's an ideal launching pad for parent-child or teacher-child discussion of phonics and spelling!
Whether you're stocking a preschool classroom or just looking for new ways to add an educational twist to playtime at home, Farm Story Sequence Set is a terrific way to build cognitive and fine motor skills . . . and have a great time doing it! The set features 10 farm-themed sequences, each made up of four storytelling picture cards that fit into numbered barns on the sequence boards. On their fronts, the picture cards feature sweet illustrations of farm scenes, such as milking the cow or growing the corn; on the backs, a picture-and-number key lets kids check their answers when the sequence is complete. Best of all: The set comes with two sturdy wooden sequence boards, so kids can play independently, side-by-side, or even competitively! Set includes 10 sequences (total of 40 picture tiles), 2 wooden play boards, and sturdy wooden storage tray.
Find the right piece to complete the sequence and link the puzzle pairs! Stored in a sturdy wooden tray, this educational puzzle set lets children practice color recognition, sequencing, and problem solving as they complete color patterns in eight exciting themes. Each theme (bears, circus elephants, flowers, apples, clowns, lions, and dinosaurs) includes five two-piece puzzles to solve, offering just the right amount of variety to challenge preschool puzzlers. Parents and caregivers can help modify the level of difficulty even more by mixing in pieces from other themes, or by limiting the choices for beginners. It's a great way to learn together, and the self-correcting pieces mean kids can play on their own, as well--a great confidence builder as they learn to sort, sequence, and solve!
