This fun and entertaining kit allows open-ended play and creativity for young children. Colorful and sturdy, the hands-on learning foam fish help to develop letter recognition skills through activities involving matching, uppercase and lowercase letters, sequencing, spelling, textures, colors, sorting, lacing, and eye-hand coordination. Each fish features a word on one side with a textured surface on the reverse side. The skills and concepts taught with this kit support national reading and English standards. The activity book and cards further extend the skills children learn in school with fun activities on word puzzles, dot-to-dot, imaginative play and classifications.
