I am excited to introduce another Quiet Book for your cute little kiddos. This book helps twith teaching hand-eye coordination, color to word recognition, sorting, fruit and vegetable names, measuring, matching food to shadows, and puzzles. It is a really fun book. We have loved having it around my house. I have even caught my older kids playing with it. “But it’s so cute, Mom!”, my 10-year-old said. You know it’s a good one if everyone wants to play with it.
DONUTS : Mach Each Colored Donut to its Color Name!
Look at those little faces. Makes you want to run over to the Bakery and buy a yummy treat. When we find the match we break down each color name. While holding the red donut, we point to the letters R-E-D, Red. It is really effective. My four-year old can spell several of the smaller color words.
FOOD PUZZLE: Put it together matching the fruits up with the pieces.
My son used to struggle with puzzles. We focused a lot on color matching and completing each individual image. It was hard for him to see the big picture but he loves puzzles now!
FRUITS AND VEGETABLES: Put the Fruits and Vegetables into their crates.
Make individual crates and put the food in the correct crate. Good luck with that tricky tomato. I still tell my kids it is a vegetable.
MEASURE THE FRUITS: Measure each fruit from bottom to top and put by their number of inches.
The stems are included in the measuring. That is why I made a bottom and a top for measuring. Use the ruler on the page and measure the fruit and place it next to the correct number of inches.
LEMONADE: Add the lemons and Ice to the Lemonade.
You have to add the essentials to a pitcher of lemonade. When we play with this page I often give specific instruction. Place a piece of ice next to________. or place the ice at the top and the lemons at the bottom. Anything to help them learn beyond the quick placement of the pieces.
TACO: Stuff the Taco!
Isn’t this the cutest!? This is my favorite page. Place the tomatoes and lettuce in the taco with the other ingredients. Then close up the tasty meal and smile, because the taco is smiling back!
FAMOUS PAIRS: What two things go together?
These couples are almost as famous and Romeo and Juliet. We have Bacon and Eggs, Burger and fries, Milk and cookie, Donut and Hot Cocoa. The kids match the food to its shadow. Notice the love between them ♥.
PIZZA: Put together the Pizza Puzzle.
You can be as picky as you want on this. You can use all the pepperoni or just be happy that the pizza actually resembles a circle shape. My son matches it up correctly with all the pepperoni about half the time. So you could just let them put them on where they want at first just to get the shape and then increase the difficulty later on as they get quicker at the puzzle to give them more of a challenge.
I hope you like what you see. I get this adorable quiet book and others GO HERE!
