I am a homeschooling Mama so I am always on the lookout for products that I am able to incorporate into our activities, both in learning and in fun.
I have found out from an early stage that my little one loves flash cards. Not just alphabet ones, but math ones, site word ones and all in between. She learned the alphabet and her colors at a very early age from flashcards. Lately we've been working on site words and reading with her, so I have been in the market for flashcards that have easy words on them for her and also with pictures so she can relate the two which will help her pick up the words.
That is where the Educational Alphabet Flash Cards come in. They are sold by Educational Toys Planet and are available for $2.97 from their site.

These are labeled for children that are 3 years of age and up. Our little recently turned 5 so I wasn't sure how much of a challenge some of these words would be for her. Before we opened up the package I was figuring that they would mostly be two letter or three letter words (at, cat, dog, etc), words that she already knows.
I was pleasantly surprised to find more difficult words in the package for her. Words that we hadn't really gone over in the past. Some words she had "heard" from me while I was reading to her, but these weren't words that she had been actively trying to sound out herself. Some words she did get right off, but those are words that she comes across everyday in our readings, but the more difficult ones, after a few tries she was starting to pick up because we could flip the card over so that she could see the picture on the other side. Therefore, using some skills to figure out the word.
This probably doesn't matter to a lot of folks, but to me it does. I really like how the writing (printing) on the cards is good size. It makes it much easier for our child to quickly recognize a letter and to sound the word out if she doesn't know it. When the writing is so tiny, they have to really look at it and sometimes the b's start to look like d's or the c's start to look like o's. But we didn't have that problem here.
I really believe that you would enjoy adding this product to your children's items for learning. They can read the words, they can play games with the words (there are instructions in the box for game play) and they will learn while they are having fun.
