School is on its way and before you know it, your kids will be back in the swing of things. How do you prepare them for this transition? The best thing to do is to start thinking about how they can get ready for school with screen-free activities. You will find some great ideas below. Not only can you use the Teach My Learning Kits, but there are many other fun activities as well.
After a crazy year of countless hours of online learning mixed with some in-person classes, this fall, kids will be going back to school full-time. Do you feel like your Kindergarteners didn’t learn as well with Zoom classes? Do you feel like your kids spent way too much time at home in front of a screen over the break? Teach My can get your kids back on track for the new school year with their screen-free kits!

Fun screen-free ways to use Teach My to get kids ready for school
The Teach My Kindergartener has 52 Magnetic letter tiles. It also has a wipe-off spelling board. Parents (or older siblings) can print a letter on the board and have your little one find the matching letter tile! You can do this for upper and lower case letters.
My son used to love using Scrabble tiles to practice his spelling words. Your kids can use letter cards or tiles to spell simple words. If your littles need help with spelling, use the wipe-off board to spell a word and have your child find the correct tiles to spell the same word.
The Teach My Preschool Kit is all about learning numbers and math. Use the magnetic numbers to match the number on the card that comes in the kit. This tactile and sight learning method really helped my son with his numbers and letter recognition.
Writing letters and numbers is something that is very difficult to do on a screen. Teach My kits have practice printing guides. Get your kids to learn how to write their name and some of their favorite things. I remember how excited my son was when he learned how to write his own name!
