It is amazing how versatile these are - Let's say you are running errands in town with your toddler and you find yourself sitting in the car and you have 5 minutes to quickly teach your child something new... Now reach in your handbag and take out the Touch and Count Cubes.
For example you decide to teach your child about colour - you hold up a yellow cube and you say: "This is a yellow cube" then ask: "What else can you see that is yellow? Now you hold up a red cube and say "This is a red cube" - "What else can you see that is Red?"
Now you place the cubes in front of your child and you ask: "Can you find all the yellow cubes?" and your child proceeds to gather all the yellow cubes in their hand. You then place those aside and ask your child to do the same with the red cubes.
Now you ask your child to place a yellow cube followed by a red cube, then another yellow cube and then a red cube...
Before you know it - you have just taught your child 3 new things!
- Sequencing Patterns
and it goes even deeper than just that - you had your child engaged in Language and Thinking Skills - Laying down the fundamentals of early learning.
Well Done Mom!
