If you have a toddler and homeschool older siblings, your pre-K child may want to do “school work” too. My 3-year old started insisting on worksheet type activities when she was 2 1/2. Since that time, I have sought out preschool activities she would enjoy. My 3-year old was excited for our opportunity to try out Evan-Moor’s Skill Sharpeners Geography book. I received this workbook in exchange for this review. All opinions are my own.
Toddler Workbook Heaven
What kid doesn’t like getting mail? If your preschooler is like mine, a special book just for them arriving in the mail is like a birthday or Christmas present. My daughter was so excited to get her book. She saw all of the bright colors and wanted to start doing the activities right away. She is in toddler workbook heaven with the Skill Sharpeners Geography book.
This Geography book introduces important geography skills including:
- Landforms and Bodies of Water
- Continents and Oceans
The information covered is most appropriate for a 4 year old; however, my 3 year old was successfully introduced to the concepts covered. She was fully engaged in learning through the beautiful pictures and colorful drawings in the book.
Additional Preschool Level Skills:
This preschool Skill Sharpeners Geography book includes 4 types of pages:
- Geography Text
- Talk with Your Child
- Written Practice Activities
- Hands-on Activities
The text sections gently introduce the child to geography concepts. Colorful photos or drawing provide a visual reference for the child as the parent reads the information.
Talk with Your Child
The Talk with Your Child pages include colorful drawings and photographs illustrating geography concepts and a box at the bottom or side of the page indicating discussion ideas. This component really makes the workbook interactive between parent and child.
Written Practice Activities
Written practice activities are used to practice the introduced geography skills.
The hands-on activities are fun ways to use fine-motor skills (cutting and gluing) to create crafts or complete puzzles related to each geography topic.
