Review: School Zone Publishing Company
Educational products are always a big hit in our home. Combine that with fun and you've got yourself a winner!
We were sent 2 items from School Zone Publishing Company and we really enjoyed both of them.
Kindergarten Magnetic Tin ($15.99) - Being a flight attendant, I love things that are compact and easy to take-along. This magnetic tin is perfect for the airplane, car rides, or grocery shopping trips. The entire container is made of tin including the front cover. This makes it so much easier to use and ensure that pieces don't get left behind. It comes with 12 activity pages which are used with the various animal, letter, number, and shape magnets that are included. What a great way to learn and have fun at the same time!
Start to Read Level 1 Kit ($17.99) - When we first open this kit up, I couldn't believe at how many things were in it! It came with storybooks, journals, CDs, song books, activity pages, stickers, stencils, pencils, dry erase pens and eraser. What I loved best was the folder that it came in. Talk about organized! Everything had it's own place. Another great item to take along with you when you're traveling.
Girlie Girl's favorite items were the simple storybooks because of the word/sound repetition. Once she figured out one sentence, she could easily read the next. It made her feel like she was accomplishing something and felt encouraged to continue on. The bright and colorful pictures also enhanced the learning experience.
I would highly recommend these and other educational products from School Zone Publishing Company. They really know how to make learning fun! Thank you to them and to the Parent Bloggers Network for this opportunity.
