We tried a few of the fun math games and used the unifix cubes to measure. they are also great for counting, addition, and subtraction. We used the phonics book to do some phonics match games. The match game was fun to do the matching and they are double sided so you can do it with numbers or pictures. We played against each other in the word family bingo game. Jayden won twice! This is a great set, there is so much that Jayden can learn using this set. I really think the word family bingo helped Jayden with sounding out the words to decide if they are words or not. This set has so much to help build skills in addition, subtraction, story problems, measurement, telling time, long and short vowels, nouns, and verbs, and reading comprehension.
Jayden was super excited about this one. If he had his way he would paint every rock in our front yard, and we have desert landscape with all rocks. He has painted a lady bug, a football, and a frog so far. He wants to do more, but I am trying to slow him down so he doesn't use it all up or all our rocks. The instructions are really easy to follow with clear pictures on each step. Jayden was excited with the extra items like glitter glue and pom-poms. After he finished his rocks he added a little bling with the glitter glue and pom-poms. He was so excited after the first time we did it that he had to take them to school and show his teacher. There is plenty of paint to last for many rocks for sure.
Both of these items are great for learning and for keeping boredom at bay.
