What comes in each kit?
Each kit comes with one phonics activity, one math activity, one social studies or science activity and one themed monthly craft. Many of the activities involve some crafting or creating as well. They are meant to keep kids busy and engaged. The majority of the materials are included. Basically, if we can provide it, we do. We want this to be as convenient as possible. However, sometimes, you will need an item we cannot provide, for example a hot glue gun. Any not included items will be labeled.
How will this help my child?
The science of reading has shown that children need systematic, explicit phonics instruction. *Depending on the estimate(19), anywhere from 1 percent to 7 percent of children figure out how to decode words on their own, without explicit instruction. In short, children benefit significantly from consistent phonics practice. Math skills also require practice and repetition. Many of the reading and math activities can be continually used, providing many opportunities for instruction and practice.
