Giveaway: Toss & Learn Games Set

on August 2, 2012

Today’s Curriculum Clean-Out giveaway, also linked up at Hip Homeschool Moms Giveaway Day, is for three of my favorite early childhood resource books, Scholastic’s Toss & Learn Game series:

Add a photocopier and photo blocks (trim cards to size and insert in blocks), jumbo foam dice (cut cards out and tape to dice), or even cardboard and packing tape (mount cards on cardboard, cut, and use packing tape to assemble pieces into sturdy die), and you’ve got 30 fun, active learning games for preschoolers or kindergartners. I used these games at least a couple of times a month while teaching preschool and kindergarten, and they were always a hit — so much so, in fact, that I ended up buying digital copies of these books so that when I needed a quick activity, these were just a few keystrokes and a bit of cutting away.

I’ve held on to the print copies of these, despite having digital copies, through two moves. It’s time now, however, to let them find a new home. The copies I’m offering here have my name on the front cover, but are otherwise in excellent used condition with only the lightest of shelf wear.

To enter this drawing, simply comment on this post, telling me about your favorite early childhood resource. It could be a book, a toy, a game — whatever your children have loved and learned from. You may earn extra entries by liking Preschool Years at Home on Facebook, subscribing to our FeedBurner feed, sharing this giveaway on your own blog, or tweeting about it. The contest ends at midnight August 9. Free media mail shipping is to U.S. addresses only.

    I love the preschool board games! They learn alot of different things when they are playing the games, plus it’s fun!

    • Julie says:

      We’re diehard board game lovers as well! What are your favorites? Busytown, the “Peg”gy Back Game, and Discovery Garden seem to get the most love here.

  2. Carly says:

    I don’t know that I have a favorite resource! I guess so far my favorite has been just free printable resources I find on great blogs. Thanks for the giveaway!

  4. Kate says:

    My children’s garden

    • Julie says:

      I *wish* we had space for a garden. We filled some planters in front of our apartment this spring, but the triple digit summers here make it hard to keep plants alive.

  5. Amber says:

    Books, books, and more books! My kids love reading and them making up their own stories after!

    • Julie says:

      My older daughter has been a book lover from infancy. YDD started walking at eight months and is just now beginning to slow down enough to listen to short board books before taking off again.

  6. Lora says:

    There are sooo many! I don’t know if we have a favorite. I love games, books, and open ended manipulatives. Also we live on a farm with lots of outdoor space where they can learn and explore!

  7. Jennifer says:

    As long as it’s hands on, craft or game related, I’m not picky because my daughter LOVES all of the above. 🙂

  8. Crystal M says:

    We love books here! Our kids can’t seem to get enough of them, and I feel like they are so important to give them a good educational start!

  9. Tara says:

    I love many, many things….but in a non-traditional answer we just got a school table off Craigs list & I LOVE it!

    Books are first and foremost for us.

  12. Kristina Best says:

    Alphie the talking robot.

  13. Tammy says:

    So many things I love. But something I would never guessed my son would like is Quizmo fruit and vegetable game. Then a laminator and velcro are so wonderful in how they make learning so much more fun for my son.

  14. Jill Lauder says:

    I always loved my Alphie robot, so guess what my sonis getting for his birthday this year??? 🙂

  15. Scarlet says:

    I love lapbooks. My daughter has been surprisingly receptive to them.

  18. Rissa says:

    I love, love, love books, puzzles, and (I’ll admit it) educational video games.

    My son loves puzzles and anything hands-on. He’s deaf and autistic, so we follow his lead. 🙂

  38. Kirsten says:

    Free internet resources are great & we use them all the time (esp. from 1+1+1=1 & Confessions of a Homeschooler), but mostly just being outside with my kids. We live on a hobby farm with various animals & a good-size garden, so they get a lot of hands-on learning just helping me with chores.

  39. Kirsty says:

    Books, books and more books! We do so much reading and our 3.5 year old son loves it and constantly asks for us to read more books to him! 🙂

    Books! We read like crazy. Picture books, story books, seek & find books. Even books full of worksheets. We love em all!

    My favorite resource has been Raising Rock Stars from 1+1+1=1!! It has been awesome for both my kids 🙂
