Practice the ABC’s and 123’s with something different from flash cards. You have a kiddo in PreK or Kindergarten and their teacher says, “practice letter recognition, sight words, number recognition, etc.” All you can think of is drill, drill, drill but your kiddo takes one look at the flashcards and runs! There is so much more you can do. So many ways to make learning and practicing those skills fun for you and your child. Bonus: After you fill their attention cup and play the game a few times with them, they may even enjoy playing some independently. The post will give you (#) of ways to practice these skills using a Printable board game and a spinner. Both are available to print FREE from my Busy Box Library as soon as you subscribe.
