Q: My son will be 5 the end of the month We are still working on numbers and letters so he's not up to kindergarten level just yet. But I want him to be challenged and engaged.Should I go with kinder boxAsked by Melanie L., March 2020
If you are still working on numbers and letters I would go with the Preschool box for now. The preschool box focuses on letter identification, letter writing, and beginning sounds, while the kindergarten box also focuses on letter writing, but also increases difficulty with practicing CVC words (dig, cat, etc,) and hearing each individual sound. For math, the preschool box focuses on numbers to ten and counting stories, the kindergarten box practices numbers to 20 and addition/subtraction stories.
Q: Would this be too hard for my developmentally delayed prek3 kids, please?Asked by Anne H., March 2020
Thank you for your question!
The activities in the preschool box are geared more toward a PreK 4 group, but the activities can be differentiated to meet the needs of PreK 3 as well. Younger kiddos will need a little more adult support overall. For example, the number cards for counting go to 10, but for children that are not ready developmentally for that, number cards 1-3 may just be used initally. Also, for stringing the patterns, maybe for...
Q: What is the difference between th ePrk & Kindergarten boxes? Does this box support common core grade level standards. Asked by Molly J., March 2020
The differences between the PreK and Kindergarten boxes is the level of difficulty, but generally work on the same standards. For example, the PreK box uses a single ten frame for numbers up to ten and the kindergarten box uses a double ten frame to practice numbers up to 20. Also, for the math word problems preschoolers are practicing counting and positional language while kindergarteners are focusing more on addition and subtraction, with some positional language as well.
This box has been a huge hit in our home. My kiddo has been engaged in the activities and asked to do more. I love that everything you need is included in the box. Highly recommend for preschool and kindergarteners.
This was the best box ever! My son played and was learning at the same time. He had no idea he was working on math, reading, and even some fine motor skills. Our box contained so much enjoyment and so much work went into it. You can tell the seller has so much expertise on this and it shows by the quality of the lessons, the materials, and everything inside the box. I cannot wait until I get the next box!
I can't believe how much comes inside this box! Everything is so carefully thought out and fits with the theme. I was unsure about storage because I am short on space, but I can put all of the materials back inside of the box and it fits on top of one of my high cabinets.
One of the best parts is the time I saved with the preparation and planning of my sensory play centers. 16 activities are complete and all I had to do was open the box, put the materials in my sensory table, and make copies. HUGE timesaver having everything right there and also not having to search for sensory bin ideas. For $15 per month, this is completely worth it.
I'm looking forward to receiving my next box and so are my students! Next time I will open the box with them as another fun surprise for all of us.
