I can't stop thinking about how Jayden will be going to Kindergarten very soon. Although it is months away I just know the time will fly by. As much as I know I am not ready for him to go to school, I also know I want him to be ready. Jayden knows his letters and letter sounds, but it never hurts to have extra practice. School Zone sent me their Bedtime Alphabet Interactive flash cards.
For over 30 years School Zone has been creating high quality, affordable educational resources for children preschool to sixth grade. School Zone has research based products made by educators for educators and parents. The School Zone Bedtime Alphabet Interactive flash cards creative, interactive flash cards that make learning fun day and night.
There are 32 cards included as well as a flashlight. By shining the flashlight through the cards a shadow in the shape of letters and letter sound pictures. After receiving the cards Jayden and I pulled them out one night at bedtime. We laid together in his bed. Jayden pulled out his flashlight and then we realized the cards came with a flashlight. At first Jayden was looking at the cards and I had to point out the shadow on the ceiling. Jayden liked naming the letter and the items in the pictures. He was able to identify almost all of them. There were a couple of images that he had a harder time identifying. I was able to remind him the letter sound and then he was able to get them. The cards are a great size for him to hold and shine the line through. The cards seem pretty sturdy, but I'd like to have seen them made from a thick plastic to help them last longer.
In addition to using the cards to make a shadow light on the ceiling or wall there are other activities the cards can be used for. With 96 different shapes cut out they can be used as stencils for drawing. Also on the back of the cards there are parts to a puzzle and 6 of the cards make up a complete picture. Some of the skills that can be learned with these cards include letters, letter sounds, alphabet, reading readiness, creativity, imagination, problem-solving, fine motor skills, following directions, and eye-hand coordination.
