In this backpack, you will find literacy-based books, literacy-themed DVDs, and two activies: UNIFIX letter cubes activity cards and Pop For Sight Words game.

UNIFIX Letter Cubes - What a great idea! Unifix cube-like phonics manipulatives! Children can "build" words by connecting cubes end-to-end to help your child with letter recognition and sounds, word building and spelling. Uppercase and lowercase letters are printed on the cubes, and vowels are a different color than consonants.

Perfection Learning Magnetic Letter activity - Soft foam letters stick to any magnetic surface. Great for building early literacy skills.  The front side introduces the letter and word examples. The back side provides the next step in phonics learning. Cards can also be used with magnetic letters.  Offers countless opportunities to work on alphabet awareness, letter-sound correspondence and early word building.  Supports students with color-coded letters to differentiate consonants (blue) from vowels (red).

Pop For Sight Words game - Students will gobble up handfuls of fun as they recognize and read aloud sight words. Improves fluency as children pick word cards from the popcorn box, and keep all the words they can read correctly.

Books & DVDs - Talk with your child about the stories and characters in the books and episodes. Ask probing questions to further your child's thinking about science. We hope you will spend time with your child exploring science. These provided activities are great for fostering a love for engineering.
