Kit Checklist

While playing with adorable little objects is a great way to keep children engaged and make language learning meaningful, keeping track of all of them can be a bit of a challenge. 

That’s why we’ve created a checklist you can use when it’s time to clean up.  Simply print if off, laminate it and use a dry erase marker to check off the items as you put them back in the bag. 

There are also some sneaky teaching opportunities here:

1.  Review the names of all the items in the kit. Can they find them as you name them or can they name them on their own?

2.  Practice using the object labels in new sentence forms such as:

“Let’s put all the snakes away, now let’s put all the pom poms away,           now let’s….”

“First, we need to put all the snakes in, next we need to put all the   
pom poms in, next…”

3.  Use it as a pre-literacy activity showing children that we move from left to right and top to bottom when reading or doing a worksheet.

4.  Help them to complete a “worksheet” type activity with success – setting them up for the millions of worksheets coming their way.

5.  If some items are missing, use this as an opportunity to work on verbal problem solving.  Pose question like Where could it be? What could have happened to it?  What can we do now?

If worse comes to worse and you have truly lost some items, let us know and we’ll do our best to send you some replacements.
