My babies aren't little babies anymore, much to my disdain, so now instead of playing pat-a-cake, we're focusing on school readiness. Sophie is a little smarty-pants, and she can count, identifies all of her letters and numbers, and reads better than most 1st graders I've known. Xander isn't too shabby when it comes to his skills, either. (Although he's not as advanced as his sister quite yet, which is to be expected, being a year younger.)
I don't know about you, but I have found that kids learn more efficiently and retain knowledge better when learning is fun. Kids are silly, fun creatures, after all! Just look at my little goofballs!

The posters, foam numbers and counting guides are wonderful. All of the components are great, actually. They allow me to teach my kids in the same way that a classroom teacher would. I love seeing them apply what they've learned in their day to day life. Xander especially loves counting his teddy bears and stuffed animals.
But the real hits in our home would have to be the Magic Drawing Board and Transparencies, as well as the assorted flash cards.
Here's Sophie, doodling on the Magic Drawing Board. Yes, she is drawing here...sort of. But the board can also be used to teach kids how to write letters, numbers, and words.
One way I like to make learning fun is to offer rewards for learning. When kids get recognition for their accomplishments, they tend to be more enthusiastic when it comes to learning. Check out Xander...He is making his "Silly face" as he patiently waits for me to get out his beloved books and flash cards!
