In-between homeschooling the kids I like to give the kids activities and sometimes some extra work books to work on certain skill sets.
Today I want to share some of those books with you and give you a little rundown of what I like about them.
Here are my favorite work books on activities and learning!
Toddler Work Books
Sticker books! – Toddlers love to stick things and the variety of these books keeps them busy for some time. Pair this with crayons and some blank paper for them to create scenes. Draw outlines if needed for younger toddlers.
Dry erase books – There is nothing that a toddler loves more than to scribbles things over and over again. This book will carry on over to the preschool area with your child yet allow them the freedom to doodle everywhere.
Preschool Work Books
Mazes – Between preschool and kindergarten your child will become interested in mazes and puzzle solving. I bring this book out every now and again so we have something to “solve”.
Following directions is also an important skill for a preschooler and as I’ve noticed my kids lack in this department. Using this book and this other one (that is in color) we work on some following directional cues each day.
Kindergarten Work Books
This set of activity books is by far the most involved ones we have. It covers an entire range of things from colors, shapes, cutting, logic, numbers & letters and other directional qualities. They have extra directions if you would like to include a more faith-based learning activity as well. My kids love the animals and often work from different themed books every day.
We also enjoy some extra math challenges!
Another challenge my learners have is identifying beginning and ending sounds of works, so we do a little extra work here as well.
