The early years of a child’s development helps to lay the foundation for all that is to come. Researchers have found that between birth to three years of age, the brain develops the majority of its neurons and is the most receptive to learning.
I’m incredibly blessed to be a SAHM. My days consist of snack and meal preparation, coloring, playing, trying to keep the house and most importantly teaching my children everything I possibly can. The past few weeks have been a whirlwind with a toddler and newborn in the house. I’ve come to really depend on hands-on activities to do with my toddler, when my other is napping.
Luckily, there are a plethora of educational materials available that helps make life easier and your children smarter.
BOB BOOKS® and VersaTiles®
BOB BOOKS® helps your children learn to read with an amazing educational set. The set includes: 12 Bob Books, a workbook with 20 activities, and VersaTiles®. VersaTiles® give a hands-on way to practice skills using a puzzle-like answer case. It’s like a game with a self-check pattern so you are able to see if the answers are correct.
The Learn to Read with BOB BOOKS® and VersaTiles® series offer a fun puzzle-like way to practice reading! Ten to 12 Bob Books per set introduce kids to the fun of reading at three levels: Beginning Readers, Advancing Beginners, and Sight Words. The VersaTiles workbook helps children practice skills they’re learning by using a simple pattern puzzle. I think this is a great way for children to hone on their comprehension of the words and also build confidence in their abilities.
My daughter may still be a ways off from reading alone, but the key is to practice reading everyday. Teaching your child to read is truly a process that begins at infancy. Begin reading with your newborn within days of welcoming them home! As you get into a routine, reading time builds a special bond and helps to foster a love for books. Did you know? Enjoyment while reading is one of the single greatest predictors of reading success in school-age children.
