In the months that follow, you will receive themed activities and supplies for use in conjunction with your introductory Traveler Kit.
This month’s theme was Landmarks. Our package arrived with a letter from Max, Mia and their dog, Toby; a postcard; a luggage tag; stickers; an activity book; descriptions of landmarks; landmark cards; landmark replicas and a landmark flashlight adventure.
Next, we read the enclosed landmark cards. He liked these. I wish they had included one for each landmark.
I liked how the postcard helps children see just how much the tower leans.
Finally, we read the blurbs about the four landmarks contained on this page. I found this to be the most interesting, detailed information in the kit. I wish comparable information had been provided about all of the landmarks included in the set.
After reading and interacting with the map, my son turned his attention to the enclosed workbook for reinforcement of what the landmarks look like. While none of the tasks in the workbook is at all challenging, I do like how they prompt him to talk about what he’s doing using the names of the landmarks. This repetition will help him recognize the landmarks in the future.
Activities included number games, mazes, matching, identifying patterns, choosing what picture was different from the others, tracing, following shapes and identifying landmarks. All told, these activities took about 15 minutes for my son to complete.
For our final reinforcement activity, my son manipulated his “flashlight” so he could see different pictures of landmarks and identify them. He really enjoyed this activity!
Our last task for the day: add this cool luggage tag to the suitcase we received last month as part of the Traveler Kit.
