Because of our living situation, which I'm not going into the story now, we do not have a classroom. However, because homeschooling is so important to us, we do what we have to do. We do not have a wall to dedicate to homeschool, so we make do and I'm working on some projects to fix the situation. Currently, we have a bookshelf out of the way to store our school items on and we use a file box for our daily work.
I have always loved felt storyboards- I think they really help teach concepts and reading comprehension- and I have been wanting to create one for the kids, but I'd rather go with a magnetic one. I hadn't found a solution yet, so when I had the opportunity to work with Lewo toys, I jumped at the opportunity and this has solved several of our problems. This Lewo Magnetic Game Board with Puzzle Pieces ($18.00 on Amazon) has given us a chalkboard, dry erase board, storyboard, puzzles, and storage box that can slide in our school box. What a solution!
This by itself offers amazing activities for your children, whether you homeschool or not. The package includes a wooden box, magnetic board with chalkboard on one side and whiteboard on the other side, dry erase marker, eraser, and chalk. It also includes several magnetic puzzles and a booklet to assist with putting the puzzles together. It is about the size of a notebook. (The board just lays in top of the box, so if you will be standing it to store, put a band around it). The box has 3 different ways to allow the magnetic board to stand. The creation and concept of this set is awesome!
Tbomb loves it, because we will take turns displaying the story while we read. Kodabug loves putting the puzzles together and writing on it. She also uses it while we do school with her letter of the week curriculum. I'll pull a puzzle out that goes with our theme, and she loves it. I did something a little different with this set. I put all of the puzzles together, flipped them over, and wrote numbers on them. This accomplishes two different things- the kids can match numbers and then put them together, and it also helps me when preparing for lessons. I put the number for each in the book as well- I just look through the book, find the number I need, and pull those magnets out!
This has been an awesome addition to our homeschool resources and it fits nicely in our homeschool box! Thanks Lewo Toys!
