My oldest boy didn't attend pre-k so when it came time for kindergarten I wasn't sure if I had worked with him well enough to know for sure he wouldn't be behind the learning curve for school. He did very well in kindergarten so I must have done something right. He has been a straight A student from kindergarten to second grade. He will start third grade this fall and my youngest will start kindergarten. He didn't attend pre-k either and again I feel that mommy guilt once again that I didn't work with him as much as I should have. Part of our getting ready for kindergarten this year involved the pre-k Schoolies board books and flash cards from MacMillan Kids.
This Schoolies book set includes:
My School Day – From waking up to favorite lessons to the bus ride home, kids will love learning to tell time as they spend a day with the Schoolies. Includes a play clock with moveable hands so young readers can turn to the right time as the Schoolies enjoy their day.
School House – Fold-out pages create four scenes in and around the Schoolies school house. Includes press-out play characters and accessories, plus sticker sheets.
Let’s Get Ready For School – Early learning book with wipe-clean pages so that all of the activities can be repeated, reinforcing learning.
Making Friends and My First Day of School Storybooks – Two reassuring and positive stories about overcoming shyness and being nervous to start school. Books include two sheets of fun Schoolies stickers.
Activity Flash Cards – Neat boxful of 26, double-sided Schoolies activity flash cards to help children learn their ABC, 123, colors, shapes and more.
We have had our Schoolies board books, reading books and flash cards for a few weeks and my 5 year old has enjoyed them very much. He likes that he is allowed to put stickers all over and write in these books without getting in trouble, Mama even helps ha ha. His favorite is the school house book with the fold out pages where he can make up his own stories about school. He likes tracing in the let's get ready for school book too. It has a variety of things to trace and learn not just the ABC's. It also has shapes, numbers and words to learn like names of colors.
