    This curriculum guide for young children is crammed with a multitude of fun, educational activities to teach them about many different subjects while they learn their alphabet. The book is organized by the alphabet, with activities and reproducibles accompanying each letter. For example, the book begins with "A," which is introduced by a large capital "A," which children are invited to cover with "Aa's" they find in magazines or newspapers. The next page offers a couple of lines for them to practice printing upper and lowercase "A's" along with coloring pictures of related objects. Then it's on to the pages of activities. First there is a language arts page, which holds suggestions for such things as vocabulary words, fingerplays, recommended books, learning directions, and comparing. Then comes the math page, which introduces activities like sorting animal crackers, making patterns, and mathematical concepts like more and less. Next is social studies, which for "A" is themed around Agriculture and Farming. Children may create a farm scene, learn about farm animals, make butter and farm animal crackers, make a farm print, and learn about vegetables. On the science page, children will learn about air by finding ways to "see" it, like making simple sailboats and pinwheels, and experimenting with air. For two all-time favorite subjects of young children, art and music, there are also activities supplied. Children will enjoy making alphabet block prints, making personalized art display holders, painting aquariums

    and learning about mixing colors while creating abstract paintings, and singing "A" songs while getting acquainted with a couple of instruments. The last topic covered in each letter is gross motor/games. This page offers some games and activities to put children's energy to good use. They'll play the Alert and Auto Dodge games, learn aerobics, act like the animals, and practice being acrobats. On the backside of each activity page are reproducibles offering up reproducible activities such as coloring, matching and arranging. Some of these pages also hold the patterns needed to complete the activities suggested in the book. This same format continues for each letter of the alphabet. A total of over 600 activity suggestions, 130 reproducible games and patterns, and 50 alphabet identification pages are contained in this 320 page book. - Melissa

    This little kit presents a fun, colorful introduction to numbers. A thin write and wipe book invites students to count their way from one to ten. Each page showcases a different number, although the pages themselves are very similar. They contain a colorful scene with many different objects representing the number (three little frogs, three porcupines, three flowers, three dragonflies, etc.) which students can count. A guided line in the middle offers a place for students to practice writing the number. At the bottom of the page, children are encouraged to place the appropriate number of frogs (using the included frog counters) on the pond or log. Another couple of pages offer more counting activities, and the last spread in the book features a fun counting game. Kit includes the write n' wipe book, a write n' wipe pen, ten frog counters, and a 0-10 spinner housed in a sturdy box complete with a handle. – Melissa

    Written to parents with the underlying assumption that their children will be going off to school but that they can make a huge difference by impacting their early development, the 80 pages of this book by Sheila Sapp are filled with a collection of fun-filled activities and interesting homemade games. Using the rooms of the house as learning stations, instructions are easy to follow and time requirements are minimal - 15 minutes each morning and afternoon. Patterns are included and materials are household items or otherwise easily obtained. While some might consider such an assemblage unnecessary, many just-beginning homeschool/preschool moms will appreciate having a well-organized collection all in one place. Please note that the Seasonal & Holiday Fun games and activities include references to Halloween, Christmas, Chanukah, and Kwanzaa. ~ Janice

    Learning letter sounds will be fun with this beautifully illustrated hardcover book. Each page is covered with silly characters and illustrations that represent the letter on that page. Letters are presented with the letter sounds rather than letter names. Children learn letter sounds from the very beginning. Each letter is accompanied by a rhyming verse and nonsense words which offer young children an enjoyable learning advantage. The CD is a recording of the rhyming verses found in the book and is expressively narrated by Jim Weiss. Children will be repeating the verses as they follow along in the book. It teaches phonics, it rhymes, and it makes children laugh. It's the type of book you will want to read over and over with your children. ~ Donna
