Tools for Learning
When most people enter an early childhood classroom or day care center, they see lots and lots of toys. When an early childhood teacher enters an early childhood classroom they see lots and lots of tools for learning!
This section will help you to learn about some of our favorite tools for learning and how they help foster your child’s development.
So Much Fun, So Much Learning!
Like so many other tools, shape sorters come in a wide variety of designs, shapes and sizes, but all are loaded with fun and learning.
No matter what the design or theme of the shape sorter they are all 'boxes' with a variety of shaped holes for placing smaller shaped objects through the specially shaped holes. And all are great for learning.
Play with one with your little one and it doubles the fun!
We Love Interlocking Blocks!
Interlocking blocks come in many different sizes in order to accommodate all ages and stages from birth to adolescents.
Playing with interlocking blocks provides children with opportunities to develop their cognitive, social-emotional, science, math as well as fine motor skills.
What is fun about these blocks is that there is no wrong or right way. They allow children to use their imagination and be creative. One moment the blocks can be a tall tower while the next moment it can change into a firehouse. Some more of the benefits of playing with these blocks includes:
Sharing and cooperating with others
Have you ever played with our bead mazes?
It is a lot of fun to manipulate the beads from one section of the maze to the other and this helps our children learn to explore how things work. Equally as important is the exercise our fingers are getting as they grasp each bead and help it to move through the maze. It is also great exercise for our visual coordination as our eyes track the movements of the beads.
Our children learn colors from the brightly colored beads and wires. Our children learn shapes from the varying shaped beads. Our children learn counting and order words and spatial concepts as they move the first, second, or third bead forwards or backwards, up and down, over or under.
