A typical school day for my youngest, currently in Kindergarten, consists of completing 2 - 4 pages in a Rod & Staff workbook series, which he started in Preschool last year, snuggling up with me on the couch while I read to him, and having "table time" where he plays with a variety of educational toys and puzzles.
These have been favorites of all our boys from the preschool years and beyond. They've been well loved!
This is a set of Mini Motors Counters - soft rubber counting/sorting vehicles - train engine, bus, fire engine, boat, airplane, and truck. I've been amazed at how many different ways my boys have found to play with these.
This bunch is a combination of 2 sets similar to the vehicles - farm animals and backyard bugs.
Ninjas vs. Bugs!
These wooden pattern blocks are great. You can make countless designs, shapes, and little buildings out of them. We had to buy a second set after too many of the first got chewed (by our dog) or lost. Adults have been known to enjoy playing with these too!
