I’ve found that keeping something close by really helps in proper letter formation. If they can’t quite remember how a letter is formed, they can quickly glance…

Workbox Activities for Toddlers


That’s right, the Teeny Tot has her own workboxes and she’s all about having fun new activities in them each day.
