If you have kids who are starting to read, you can try using their toys with the words they need to learn. Here, I used old plastic egg toys. I recently used these eggs for Math & Eggs activity.
Sometimes, toddlers get bored at reading and reviewing from their books. Especially for boys. They enjoy better when they touch things or they do something as they learn.
Start with the CVC- Consonant-Vowel-Consonant combinations because these are family words and letters that can easily get along with each other in forming words. Here are some examples:
- net- set -let -vet -get -met -bet- pet -jet
- rat -bat- sat -mat – hat -bat
- pan- ran -man -tan- van -can
Use other toys that go in many pieces. Lego blocks are great for such an activity. There are hundreds of ideas on Pinterest like this 66 best CVC Activities images on Pinterest | Language, Classroom … that could get you inspired like this post on Teaching Toddlers Using Toy Animals.
Instead of eggs, you can use trains, balls, marbles, lego blocks, etc.just use the whiteboard markers for toys. I used permanent pen here because these are just extra eggs.
How about you? What do you think are the other toys or thing we can use to help kids read? Share them below. =)
