My First Writing Kit (Book Review)

Whether you’re homeschooling or just eager for your child to get some extra practice at home, be sure to check out this  new Junior Explorers series kit from Hinkler Books.

Every afternoon as I help my daughter with her homework my son also looks for something to keep him busy. Since we received this colourful kit from the Pan Macmillan team he’s enjoyed joining our session by doing some work of his own!

My First Writing Kit

The My First Writing Kit includes 32 activity pages that would, in my opinion, be well matched to a child in the Grade 0 to Grade 1 level (that is a child aged five plus). The kit includes five brightly coloured markers as well as a chunky grip pencil to use to complete the activities. There is also a sticker sheet with fun stickers that you can use to reward your child’s progress.

The educational activities are varied and range from warm-up activities and alphabet practice as well as tracing and copying opportunities with short words, simple sentences and texts. Some examples include tracing lines, shapes and words, tracing the lower- and upper-case letters of the alphabet, tracing the beginning letter to make rhyming words, and tracing and copying sentences. The activities each feature fun black and white illustrations which your child can colour in with the markers. There is even a seek and colour activity on the inside of the kit for your child to enjoy.

My First Writing Kit is a great way to kick off your child’s early learning journey, focusing on handwriting skills and working towards starting to recognize commons words and build an understanding of simple sentence structures. The kit will also inspire creativity and help to develop motor skills. The kit’s bright colours and fun illustrations will ensure that your child has fun while learning to write!

Thanks to Pan Macmillan for sending me this kit in exchange for an honest review.
