Inside: Learn how to make this cute Feed the Monster Box for a fun preschool letter matching activity!
One of the best learning trick for young children is to keep practicing. By practicing, I don’t mean asking any 4yo to do five pages of worksheets or copy the letters A to Z ten times.
Then how do young kids learn?
They need hands on experiences to reinforce what they have learnt. A huge bonus if you can make the learning experience fun too. When kids have fun, they associate learning with a positive feeling. Like in this letter matching activity, children search, pick up and touch each letter as they have loads of fun ‘feeding the monster’.
