Because Eaton just turned 2 I was doing some summary of his abilities. I realized that he is ready for the next step in vocabulary.
We have a LOT of books with different topics but it seems that he wants different ones, more advanced in words. I want to have great time with Eaton when we read books together. I purchased many books for homeschooling that are more specific into one subject. Although they have tons of information and Eaton starts to read them too from time to time, I see that he still prefers books appropriate for his age. I'm talking about pictures.
Eaton wants to see more advanced words or different ones but he likes to see animated characters too.
I found great set of books that fits his needs: Vocabulary Tales by Scholastic.
I love all products of this company. Most of them fit into Doman's rules: big fonts and clear pictures (this set has fonts underneath pictures)
Vocabulary Tales: 25 Read Aloud Storybooks That Teach 200+ Must-Know Words to Boost Kids' Reading, Writing & Speaking Skills
This set of 25 books includes topics like:
transportation, five senses,friendship,weather,school,
money,measurement,ocean,environment,and many more.
Sample of pages:
Here are some examples of words from books with different themes:
Friendship: grateful, generous, loyal, depend, honest, kind, arguments, agree
Computer: e-mail, online, password, Internet, keyboard, mouse, screen, Web site,
Environment: healthy, reduce, reuse, recycle, waste, energy, pollution, protect,
This set includes Teaching Guide with reproducible mini versions of all 25 storybooks. Also, it includes simple (matching words to the definition) activities. Because Eaton doesn't know how to write yet I will be re-creating these activities so he can match these words using Velcro. I will create some flashcards too.
That will look like that:
If anyone will buy that product please contact me so I will provide all these sheets for activities.
This set is a great tool you can incorporate into toddlers themes. Although, in a case with Eaton I think we will read it quicker than introducing themes like: weather, friendship or environment.
I highly recommend that set of books for a toddler who loves to read. I already introduced few books to Eaton and he enjoys them a LOT!
Happy New Year!!!
