I was wondering if anyone could recommend any good resources for me.
I'd like to introduce my preschooler to some different educational concepts (science experiments, reading, numbers, that sort of thing) but I'm not too great at doing this on my own.
He's 3 so we are obviously talking about just exposure to ideas, maybe simple and fun science experiments, books that help with alphabet memorization, that sort of thing.
Does anyone know of resources, or books, that can help me with starting these concepts? For instance.. a book that's good helping a preschoolder understand WHAT reading is? A book that has some good science experiment ideas? That sort of thing.
Left to our own devices, we hang around, read, watch TV, make things in the kitchen, draw on scrap paper, that sort of thing. And, as enriching as I feel daily life is for him, I think he's very ready to be EXPOSED to some ideas (I'm not really expecting him to start reading or anything, obviously, LOL).
Hopefully my request makes sense... I would love any recommendations. I have found some "busy books" for preschoolers. I am not really looking for just "activities"... I want things that will specifically expose him to basic ideas about the world around him, if that makes sense. I don't need something to just keep him out of my hair, so to speak, or just keep him busy, if that makes sense, I can think of fun activities... I'm looking for something more specific here.
Any ideas or help for me?
