A couple months after the start of the school year, we had our fall parent teacher conferences. It's so great to be able to meet with your children's teacher just to see how our kids are doing. My son started his full days of school, which I think are a bit tiring for their age but honestly, I have seen GREAT progress in just a few months compared to my oldest when she was in half day kindergarten. While having a full time kindergartener is amazing on its own, let me tell you about number 12! His teacher mentioned that the number twelve is the most troublesome number for kindergarteners. No one knows why, but she said most of the students in the class at the start of the school didn't know the number when being looked upon. Too funny!

Kindergarten tool kit is a great way to further practice on basics with your child for at home or on the go. The flash cards are very well thought of! There are numbers, sight words, shapes with colors, and the alphabets. Not only that, but this tool kit comes with great tips on how to teach your kids, plus dry erase marker, eraser, and a white board!
My favorite is definitely the sight words because it's simple but challenging enough. I like quizzing my son and to notice how quick he would read them. My son enjoys using the white board because he can quickly correct any mistakes he make or to erase the words and go to the next one! It gives them such great writing practice and I'm so proud to see how much he loves using these.
The shapes flash cards are not of the norm. They're colored so kids can learn or polish their colors while learning shapes. I always like to challenge my kids to see how far they can go so I like to see how well he can write the actual shape words. These are on the backside of the shapes so that if they don't know what the shapes are, they can also just look at the back!
Very typical of little sisters to just jump in and take over everything! This tool kit can be made into a little game between siblings. Have one child hold the flash cards (even if the child can't even read it, lol) and have your kindergartener learn each item.
I would say these are great for toddlers too, but just get ready for your toddler to make the "I don't know" gesture with her hands to some of them.
As I mentioned above, these are great for travel as well since they're so compact. If you're a Jujube lover like me, the medium size of the "Be Set" is perfect for this. I just alternate sides so the cards do not get mixed up. You can use rubber bands as well, but apparently I don't have any rubber bands. Time to jot this in to my next shopping list.
Last but not least, you could also put the marker and the eraser in the medium size be set as well, or you can just throw it in with the rest of the items. I am using a Jujube Mega Tech laptop cover to store all the items for travel use. I think this is amazing and keeps EVERYTHING in its place. Both the booklet and the white board can be stored as you see here.
What do you think of educating your kids for at least 30 minutes a day? Who said learning can't be fun? This Kindergarten tool kit is perfect! You can read more and purchase your own here: kindergartentoolkit.com
