Giveaway: Take It To Your Seat Learning Centers

on August 3, 2012

Today’s Curriculum Clean-Out giveaway is for two volumes from Evan-Moor’s Take It To Your Seat Learning Center collection, a $40 retail value:

The first volume, Take It to Your Seat Early Learning Centers, Grades PreK-K, is in like new condition. It includes 14 ready-to-assemble math and reading readiness activities. The second, Take It to Your Seat Literacy Centers, Grades K-1, has been used, and the two sight word activities that were removed from the book have long since disappeared. Ten of the twelve self-contained centers are still in the book.

Please note that that the activities in these books do require some preparation. They are printed on standard paper and must be cut, laminated, and assembled. The activities are bright, colorful, engaging, and age-appropriate. These books have great reviews, and I had high hopes for putting them to good use when I bought them on August 15, 2003. … But I really don’t enjoy cutting and laminating page after page of little pieces. What’s more, after nine years of housing these books, moving them, planning to use them “someday,” but consistently passing over them, I’ve finally realized that I’m never going to roll out of bed thinking, “Hey, today’s a great day to do some cutting and laminating!” It’s time for them to find a new home.

To enter this drawing, just comment on this post and tell me how you encourage math and/or reading readiness in your own children.  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 10. Free media mail shipping is to U.S. addresses only.

    My son and I just started the book “Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Lessons”. It seems like a great resource and tool. I’ve heard great reviwes about it.

  2. Holly Maurer says:

    I think my favorite is the outdoors. There is so much to do out there.

  3. Lora says:

    Our favorite resources are books, games, and being to explore outside on our farm.

  4. Carly says:

    There are so many great resources. We’ve loved exploring the museums in our city many of which have exhibits or areas specifically for little ones!

  5. Jocelyn M says:

    We love to go out and explore and read books!

  6. Jessica A. says:

    The resources that I love are books, board games, field trips and nature!

  7. Tara says:

    we incorporate talk of Math & Reading into our everyday life. Sounding out signs & pictures…counting & adding things up.

  8. alina says:

    board books, letter cards, library

  9. cynthia says:

    we read a lot at our house and play eye spy when we are driving.

  10. Sara Marks says:

    We read a lot and the kids use starfall.com – a free learning website that has really helped with letter recognition for my kids.

  11. Kati says:

    I would have to say books and outside

  12. cassie says:

    To get ready for reading and math we play games and read aloud a lot.

  13. Tammy says:

    Books are probably number one, along with all the great resources on-line. And I do love my laminator and Velcro. It’s amazing how that can make something fun!

  14. Jennifer says:

    I read to my daughters every chance I get. I really encourage her to look at the pictures and the words as I read. I encourage her to talk with me about the book and what it was about. It’s amazing how fast she learns the stories. For math I make it as fun as possible. She’s still only three after all. We use a muffin tin with fun cupcake lines which I number (including counting dots) and give her beans or pom poms and sometimes for extra fun mini marshmallows and have her count out the correct number into each tin. We’ve recently started doing more sorting and patterns with colors and shapes. It’s amazing to see the things I’ve poured into her start to come out. I spent so many months counting from 1 to 10 and singing the ABCs and then I blinked and she was counting and singing.

  15. Veronica Johnson says:

    We read a lot. I read every night to my kids and my son now reads throughout the day to his younger sister. We also go to the library every week. During the summer we go twice a week. I’m not very good with pointing out math things, but I do count things a lot with the little ones.

  16. Julie says:

    I have found that the resources provided by generous homeschooling moms on sites like 1+1+1=1 and Confessions of a Homeschooler are valuable.

    Play dough!! My son has learned all his letters, numbers, shapes, and he’s now beginning sight words all by playing with play dough (and cookie cutters!).

  23. Kirsten says:

    The great outdoors!

  24. Blogs are my #1 resource. There are so many fantastic homeschool blogs out there!

  25. The library! Recently discovered Show Me How! by Vivian Kirkfield – extension activities on a number of books…
