Sale - Alphabet and Number Soup Busy Bags - Easy Pattern Matching Activity for Toddlers and Preschoolers - Letter and Number Recognition
Sorry, this item is out of stock
This busy bag is a fun way to learn the letters of the alphabet and numbers. Toddlers and preschoolers can draw a pattern recipe card. Each recipe has letters or numbers on them. Kids need to search for the matching letters or numbers and place them in the soup pot. When they have all the pieces, they can serve up the alphabet or number soup!
This pattern activity is a good starter pattern activity because order and location of the pieces do not matter to complete the patterns. Children simply find the letter/number and place it in the soup pot - fun pretend play for little ones! You have an option to purchase magnetic letters/numbers or simply plastic ones.
I have different variations:
ALPHABET - You get the 8.5"x11" laminated card stock soup pot playing mat and 9 classroom strength double-sided pattern cards. (100# card stock and 5 mil lamination) There are 2 challenge levels. 1. The easiest pattern cards have all letters in capital letters to match the plastic alphabet. This is simply letter recognition. 2. The pattern cards have lowercase letters. Kids now need to read the lowercase and find the matching uppercase plastic letter!
NUMBERS - You get the 8.5"x11" laminated card stock soup pot playing mat and 10 classroom strength double-sided pattern cards. (100# card stock and 5 mil lamination) There are 2 challenge levels. 1. The easiest pattern cards have all the numbers to match the plastic numbers. This is simply number recognition. 2. The pattern cards have numbers shown as dots. Kids now need to count the dots and find the matching plastic number!
What is included depends on the pack:
-8.5"x11" laminated card stock soup pot playing mat
- Complete alphabet/number set (or both)
- Pattern cards. (double-sided cards professionally printed on 100# card stock and laminated with 5mil lamination - these cards are thick and will withstand classroom abuse)
-Cookie sheet if that option is selected
What they are learning WHILE having fun:
- Visual discrimination – Kids need to recognize the differences in the letters or numbers to differentiate between them.
- Fine motor - Practicing using fine motor pincer grasp in order to manipulate the plastic letters and numbers. Builds hand muscles and dexterity which are essential for a proper pencil grasp.
- Concentration. This activity utilizes several patterns so it offers a great opportunity to sit and focus on a task before it is completed.
-Problem Solving – The blocks have connectors and holes on some of the sides so they may need to move and rotate the block to complete the patterns!
- Subidizing - instant recognition of a pattern such as the dots on a die = x number. Seeing a number without having to count.
These bags contain small parts that may not be appropriate for children under the age of 3. Adult supervision is required.
