So, what is included...well, a set of lovely farm themed three part cards from Laughing Star Montessori, a set of farm themed works for shelf work, a miniature felt farm with small farm animals, a farm themed picture book, and an app for either an iPhone or an iPad of a farm themed book from Pic Pocket Books.
|We had the chance to review several fabulous farm themed iPhone picture book apps featuring the character Tractor Mac by Billy Steers. These stories are just great! The boys just loved these stories and have listened to them again and again...|
What makes Pic Pocket books a real stand out is that they have a nice variety of children's book titles and have titles in both English and Spanish. So, if you are trying to teach your child either English or Spanish and you want to have them listen to a fluent person reading a lovely story in their native tongue, these books are great! Our boys have been learning both French and Spanish but I am not a native speaker of either language, so any opportunity for them to hear a story told by a native speaker is a huge plus!!!
We had the pleasure of reviewing both the farm three part cards from Laughing Star Montessori and the Tractor Mac iPhone app books from Pic Pocket Books and let me tell you, they were a hit with the boys!
The farm cards from Laughing Star Montessori include a label, a picture card, and the control of error - picture with label card, but then, in addition, the set also includes a factual sentence about each animal.
|These additional sentence cards are a real plus to this farm work, as it adds another level of complexity to the work.|
It also makes something for an older one to share reading to a younger one.
Having this extra little sentence to go with each animal really expands what you can do with these cards in a Montessori inspired homeschool or classroom.
We just really enjoy these farm cards from Laughing Star Montessori
In addition to the farm three part cards, Laughing Star Montessori has other tie ins for your Montessori inspired farm work.
These additional items include:
and Farm Story Writing Masters.
We had reviewed Farm Story Writing Masters a few months ago and both boys did a wonderful job with improving their writing, as well as learning some neat farm animal facts, with these writing masters.
Here is a link to the review I wrote about the Farm Story Writing Masters a while ago...
They are very cost effective, as you can purchase them as pdfs in either Cursive, D'Nealian, or Print.
Well, hope that you are as excited as I am for you about this awesome farm themed giveaway!
As for Pic Pocket Books, initially I had won a few books from them and then, had contacted Pic Pocket Books directly to see if they would like me to review any of their other titles.
Since they had mentioned the Tractor Mac books, I was very happy to have my sons review these.
Our family has thoroughly enjoyed these iPhone picture book apps and the opinions I have expressed are genuinely my thoughts about their neat products.
