Reading, Math and Science

There is a mistaken impression out there that two year olds should know all the letters in the alphabet and practically be able to read by age 3!  Don't be fooled.  Kids don't like flashcards and memorization.  They like to play and they can actually learn far more by playing than they can by sitting down while you drill the letters into them, but that doesn't mean they won't enjoy being exposed to letters occasionally.  As long as it's done in a way that's fun and interesting to them, you can trick your kids into learning about math, reading, and science!


My kids spent over an hour one day using left-over Christmas sprinkles to write names onto glue and they ended up Learning Letters The Sensory Way!



Just mix 2/3 cup flour, 2/3 cup salt, and 2/3 cup water and put in squeeze bottles and your kids will be able to Use Homemade Puff Paint to Get Excited About Letters

Did you know that when kids sort and organize, they are actually using early math skills?  Find out more about this The Counting Jar


Experts say that kids start sorting objects at a very early age.  It's something that is very interesting to small children and here is how you can capitalize on that love of organzing so that your kids can Learn Math Through Sorting
