I teach kindergarten in an elementary school with a population of approximately 800 students. The students in my class range in ability and come from different socio-economic backgrounds. My students are very excited about the school day and want to experience all aspects of kindergarten. They learn new things best when using their hands. The Mystery Box,Touch and Match Guessing game are perfect for students to use their senses to explore and identify objects as they touch them. These materials target comparing and contrasting objects, describing common objects, and oral language development. The rhythm sticks and xylophone would be helpful with the development of students' eye-hand coordination and rhythm. As children explore, they increase tactile awareness, vocabulary, memory and communication skills which are so important for them. The advantages for the students are tremendous as they can experience success with these materials.
