Teach My Preschooler is one of the award winning learning kits from TeachMy.com. These kits help parents with fun and educational resources to help spend 20 minutes per day learning together and consolidating your child’s knowledge.
The Teach My kits have been available in US and Canada since 2008, and now they are launching here in the UK. I was keen to try out the Teach My Preschooler kit with my youngest boy, R age 4, to see how we got on.
The Teach My Preschooler kit is aimed at ages 3-6 and comes with a large folder, containing 4 clear wallets with different activities focusing on:
- Numbers 1-100
- Math (Addition and subtraction)
The way everything is organised into it’s own folder makes it practical and easy to grab an activity when you have a few spare minutes and everything stays tidy afterwards.
R and I have been enjoying spending time together with these activities. I like how each one is quite open ended and you can tailor it well to your child’s level. With the 1-100 pack that R is holding above, you could focus on ordering, matching the foam digits to the digits on the train cards or learning to match up the numbers with the written words.
Here he’s tracing numbers with some of the transparencies that come in the printing pack. You also get all of the lower and upper case numbers. I had never thought of combining transparencies with a magnetic drawing pad like this but it works very well and gave R more confidence in forming his numbers and letters.
The final activity in the pack contains reading books and flashcards. The books start by covering all of the letters and sounds, and then move on to some basic words and sentences. It is not the same phonics scheme used in a lot of schools in the UK, but I haven’t found this to be confusing for R so far, and he seems to be getting on well with the books. One of the sets of flashcards included does cover the “high frequency words” which most children are expected to learn during reception year, so that will tie in very well (and will be good revision for R’s brother in year 1 too!)
Overall, there’s plenty in these kits and they offer a great way to support your child’s learning at home.
