Fun that holds their attention is necessary. Teaching skills is an added bonus. Kumon Publishing provides me with both, with their First Steps Series, geared towards children 2 to 5 years of age.
There are several books in the series, each helping young children to develop fine motor control skills through activities such as coloring, folding, pasting, and cutting. Each workbook retails at $5.95, which to me, even on a tight budget, it a great price for the number of worksheets I get with each book!
The entire series is as follows:
and More Let's Color!
and More Let's Fold!
Let's Sticker & Paste!
and More Lets Sticker and Paste!
Let's Cut Paper!
and More Lets Cut Paper!
This is a series that thrills me as a Mama and delights my daughter and day care kids even more! Thank you Kumon for delivering such great products.
