Since my son is starting kindergarten this fall we have been spending some time this summer working on some basic preparatory reading and writing skills. This includes identification of letters, sounding out phonemes and some basic writing practice like his name and simple words.
A few weeks ago we received the All About Letters and Personalized Learning Pack from Curiosity Packs and both packs have been great help with our preparation. Curiosity Packs are boxes of age-appropriate activities for children ages 3-10 that help them learn about letters, numbers, friendship, science, art, love, and every other intriguing subject you can imagine. They help inspire a love of learning by bringing families together to explore.
The All About Letters Curiosity Pack helps teach little ones about the alphabet through fun activities. This pack contains an activity book that is great for teaching kids about the alphabet through inquiry, an alphabet card game to engage little ones in matching letters to letter sounds, a cute poster featuring the Curiosity Pack monster alphabet, and a laminated hide-and-seek alphabet picture and marker that kids can use to find and circle hidden letters then wipe off the picture for repeated use.
The Personalized Learning Pack we also received was prepared and designed by Curiosity Pack founder Lily Jones. She is an experienced educator and mom and she creates the personalized materials after discussing your child’s strengths, challenges and interests to put together a pack.
We have also been enjoying the wordless book she sent and the new experience of him reading the book aloud to me. Such a fun way to bond and see the world through his eyes! We rarely do this as I always read to him so it was something very exciting for both of us.
We also received a package of adorable firefighter stickers that I am using as an incentive to reinforce his hard work when we are done learning/playing.
We have been using both packs daily and my son has been excited about learning letters and working on the fun activities. I love that all materials you need are included in the kits and that they can be used multiple times.
Curiosity Packs believes in given all children access to fun engaging educative resources and they donate one Curiosity Pack to kids in need for every 10 packs purchased. I support companies that want to make a difference and I highly recommend you visit their website to familiarize with their Curiosity Packs and what they offer.
