As you probably know, back-to-school is just around the corner, and that goes for preschoolers too! Even if you’re planning to homeschool, it can be helpful if you’re a novice (like me) to have some great materials to help you get started.
The Ready for Preschool Backpack comes with:
*12 counting bears
*Slot a Shape Builders
*Book of nursery rhymes
*See through back pack to hold it all!
The set comes with 12 counting bears, which you can use for teaching counting, colors and patterns. Here I was trying to get my daughter to choose which bear came next. it took her a few tries, but she finally got it. I wish the set came with 20 bears instead of 12. 20 is a nice round number and it is common for preschoolers to learn to count to 20. But they are still great for counting. Even my 17 month old likes them.
Both of the kids also enjoyed playing with these colorful Slot a Shape Builders that click together. Like the bears, you could use these for colors and patterns, but you can also use them for practicing shapes and motor skills.
One thing in the pack that was more for me than the kids, was the activity calendar. It contains a daily activity to do with your child, using the items in the pack. This is helpful if you are beginning to homeschool your first child and are unsure of where to start. You can do more activities in a day if you choose. The calendar is just a guideline to give you ideas. As long as it remains fun for your child, feel free to keep playing!
