I’m a big proponent of giving kids the opportunity to engage in hands-on activities for each of our preschool themes. Kids explore the world with their senses as they play and learn. Activities that get them moving, interacting, and experiencing various concepts have a bigger impact on their brains. I’m excited to share an e-book that is chock full of hands-on activities for kids who are learning their letters and numbers.
Hands-On Activities for Kids Learning Letters & Numbers
I worked with a variety of other parents and educators to create this e-book, and I’m pretty proud of it! It is full of learning activities that get kids into the thick of the fun. Yes, the activities are all centered around alphabet and number learning, but they’re all done in such a fun way. Kids will have the chance to explore a variety of literacy and math skills while delving into science, imagination play, and more.

Literacy Materials for Preschool
Teaching young children the many early-literacy concepts they’ll need as pre-readers can seem intimidating. But the key to doing so successfully is by keeping students engaged in the learning process and having fun.
So, with that in mind, I’ve created a list of products that can be used to keep learning literacy concepts fun and exciting. Check it out below.

- Sensory materials
- Play Doh
- Colored pencils

This list is just the tip of the iceberg. The possibilities really are endless. We can even use the things around us each day to teach early literacy skills. Anything can be turned into a learning opportunity with a little creativity. Just remember to keep the learning fun!
