Learning Activities for Toddlers
Did you read our post on the best baby activities that he/she will love? Well, this post is for toddlers and everything you can use to teach them in exactly the way that they learn at that age.
This set is such a complete and thorough one, full of fun and engaging activities. Take a look to learn what you can interest your toddler in.
This set is called Teach Your Toddler. It is a portfolio that is very organized and very complete. Let me tell you everything that is in it.
I am sure that by the time this post is done, you will be wanting to get one for your toddler to start as soon as possible. I can’t wait for you to get the same thrill that I get when I watch my toddler be intrigued and learn so much.
Alphabet for Toddlers
The first section in the Teach Your Toddler portfolio is about the Alphabet. This section has a board book, a poster, flashcards and foam letters in both upper case and lower case. She loved to read aloud the alphabet book.
She began reading every letter on the board book cover (singing the alphabet song) and then read the letters and pointed at the pictures of animals that match the letters (a for alligator, d for duck, etc).
Sister also played with the flashcards. The Teach Your Toddler set contains all the letter of the alphabet on one side (both upper case and lower case) and the back of the cards have the matching animals that begin with the letter.
Next, she was playing with the foam letters. The letters come out. I took out several from each set and mixed them up. She enjoyed putting them back together.
Lastly, as a tacit quiz, I showed her the poster and would ask her to point at a letter and she would find that letter.
Numbers for Toddlers
The second section in the Teach Your Toddler portfolio is Math. It has numbers from one to ten. The board book was fun because Sister was counting the items on each page and then spell the number word.
After the book, she chose to work with the foam numbers. She pointed at the numbers and named them out of order. Then, she took them out and put them back in the blue foam in the correct order.
I really like the fact that the number words are always included in all the Math materials in the Teach Your Toddler portfolio. This is a great way to encourage pre-reading in a subtle and simple way. It was the same with the poster.
As she was pointing at the numbers and counting the squares, she would also spell the number words and is even starting to recognize a couple of number words. I loved watching her learn and review all of her numbers.
Shapes for Toddlers
The third section in the Teach Your Toddler is all about shapes. And this is not just including the basic shapes like circle, square and triangle, but it also adds some attractive ones such as heart, star and octagon. Isn’t that awesome?
This section also comes with a board book, the flash cards, a poster and foam shapes. She had the idea of placing the shapes cards and then matching the foam shapes and placing them on the flashcards.
I think this is her favorite section of all, but she thoroughly enjoys all of them.
Colors for Toddlers
The last and fourth section of the Teach Your Toddler is a very complete section about colors. She started by pointing at the colors on the poster.
Then she read the color book and pointed at each color. Again, this set goes beyond the basic colors like red, blue, green and yellow. Gray, brown, black, pink, orange and purple are also included.
This foam colors set is so cool. It has the crayons and paint splashes. The paint splashes can be removed. Sister spread the color cards out (on one side, the card has colors and on the other side you can see the color words) and matches the color splashes on the cards.
