Miles and Zoe are both in Preschool this year. Miles started out not very interested in learning letters or numbers. I would work with him and it just wasn’t his thing. I couldn’t even get him to sing the alphabet. Just a week in preschool and he sings the alphabet and LOVES to trace. He’s actually getting really good at it too. So one thing I like to let them do is practice.
Curious George is a familiar character thanks to my blog and PBS. The kids are excited to try things out when they see a familiar character. In the Learning with Curious George Kindergarten Reading book, the kids had fun working the puzzles, reviewing letters, and getting ready to read. Together with my help we went over basic words and started learning how to sound out the words. I tried to keep this book just for Zoe to use because she is a little big ahead of Miles, but he loves that this book is Curious George and wants to do all the tracing that’s in the book. The Curious George workbook series draws on curriculum designed by teachers and aligned to National and State Standards. Children will be led through colorful, kid-friendly activities by their familiar friend Curious George.
Reader Rabbit has been a great book for the kids too. The full color pages make practicing their letters and math skills more interesting than the black and white printer copies I had been making them before. The Reader Rabbit books are designed for children ages 3-7. The Reader Rabbit brand sets out to capture the imagination of kids while seamlessly blending learning activities with captivating entertainment. Reader Rabbit has been delighting children, parents, and teacher in countries all around the world for over 25 years.
