Get ready for preschool! Designed for children who need reinforcement or are motivated to learn more, this 192-page chunky learning pad is packed with fun preschool activities that help develop reading and writing readiness skills. It uses puzzles, humor and reward stickers to lower the barriers to learning and encourage open-mindedness toward new challenges. A companion to the award-winning Highlights Preschool Big Fun Workbook, this substantial pad provides kids with extra practice in the alphabet, sight words, and important prewriting fine-motor skills through tracing, cutting, and a bonus section of STEAM activities. The pad also teaches important "non-academic" skills that will last a lifetime, such as focus, attention to detail, and using multiple strategies to solve a problem. Plus, it's sized to easily tuck in a backpack or purse for learning anywhere.
