Maxwell, Lorraine E.
This wonderful set of activity cards will help you transform everyday activities into learning and practice opportunities for children who are already bursting with enthusiasm to learn and to contribute to their family. Your own home, the local grocery store, cars, buses and other forms of transportation are exciting places for kids to learn new skills and information, and to practice the reading, math, and problem-solving skills that they learn at school! Learning how to think and solve problems in new situations or with new materials is an ideal way to stretch your children?s imaginations and mold their self perception. These activities do not take up much time, and they involve children in daily living and household tasks. Kids will also begin to see that what they learn in school can be used outside the classroom.
