As a mom, I always want to find things that make it easier for my kids to learn the basics. As a homeschooling mom of a preschooler, I want to find things that make it easier to learn, but will also grab the attention of a three year old.
As we all know, three is an age that is hard to corral, because everything needs to be investigated. Yet, there are times when we need our little ones to focus on one task at a time.
For us, that is letter time…When we get going, then we stay going, but it usually takes time to get to that point. However, with this great ebook from Brenda Ponnay and xist publishing, ABC Flashcards, my daughter is interested from the moment it pops up on the computer screen.
She loves that there are colorful pictures of different animals and objects on the cards, and that she knows what they are. She gets excited when I say the letter, and she can answer “is for…”
I love that the cards are simple, with the letter taking center stage, but with a drawing that makes it easy for kids to place the letter with an object or animal. Then, as they get older and are learning to read, the can actually read the sentence under the letter.
I will be practicing with my daughter daily, and I know that it wont be a struggle anymore! If you are interested in getting your own copy of ABC Flashcards, you can find it on Amazon for .99!
