Take It From Me: Carson-Dellosa Review & Prize Pack Giveaway!

April 8, 2011

Carson-Dellosa Review & Prize Pack Giveaway!

"Created by teachers for teachers and parents."
 "Carson-Dellosa Publishing is a leading educational solutions provider for both educators and parents. Founded by two teachers, the company boasts a 30-year history of enhancing a child’s learning potential and environment through quality curriculum, supplemental learning materials, and classroom resources."
Carson-Dellosa has a wide range of fun, educational material for children.  From hands-on learning like puzzles & games, flashcards, stickers and learning kits to storybooks & readers with their great board books and pop up books!
Their website also offers a shop by grade section, making it easy to find what you need.
I had the delight of reviewing a giant Alphabet Train Floor Puzzle from Carson Dellosa and my little girl loves it.  There are 26 self-checking, interlocking pieces, when put together, reach 8 feet long.  My daughter is amazed at the length every time we finish it!  Some great things about this puzzle are:
1. The pieces are nice and thick--perfect for those little fingers!
2.  Easy and fun to piece together.
3.  The colors and pictures are bright and colorful
4.  Hands-on learning
This puzzle is a great way for children to learn their capital and lowercase letters, along with their sounds.
At first my daughter found this puzzle to be kind of challenging, but as we have continued to work on it together, her skills have been improving rapidly.  She is developing a better understanding of the sounds that each letter makes, as we talk about each picture.  Her fine motor skills are also improving as she works on connecting each piece together.  This has been a wonderful activity in promoting positive reinforcement and I would recommend it to other parents!
The completed Alphabet Train Floor Puzzle!
Get prepared for the summer with Carson-Dellosa's fantastic summer learning resources for your children.  Summer Bridge Activities will help maintain their skills while away from school, with exciting daily activities and tools!
