My First Touch and Feel Cards: First Words
Flashcards for babies? We did that in the 1980s. Surely in 40 years, something better has been designed. It has. My First Touch and Feel Cards: First Words are classical educational flashcards but souped up for today’s babies. The set includes 16 sturdy hardboard cards, each suitably thick to withstand clumsy small hands, and coated with a wipe-clean covering. Every beautifully-designed photo depicts the name of an everyday item and includes a textured portion - fluffy, bumpy, or fuzzy - for your baby to touch and feel, perfect to encourage sensory processing.
However, it is the back of the card that makes the My First Touch and Feel Cards: First Words an educational treasure chest. Expertly designed to enhance early language development on the back of each card is a host of questions for parents to ask, from the obvious to the creative. For parents who find themselves asking only “what is this” questions, the prompts on the back of the My First Touch and Feel Cards: First Words allows for more open-ended questions.
Plus, each box includes ideas on how to use the flashcards including simple games to play. Excellent for helping young children develop their verbal skills and vocabulary, My First Touch and Feel Cards: First Words are a fantastic resource for homeschooling families. The card deck comes in a robust cardboard box that has a Velcro closure. The words taught in My First Touch and Feel Cards: First Words are dog, teddy bear, baby, keys, tractor, car, fire truck, ball, fish, cat, corn, apple, mirror, shoes, jelly, and sweater.
