It is so important for young children to develop a solid understanding of numbers and letters in the early years, in order to set them up for learning success as they progress through school. This Beginner Learner's Toolkit will get your little learners off to a great start immersing them in playful activities that focus on early literacy and numeracy skills as well as fine motor practise.
Please note: This toolkit has been designed to fit the Francheville Craft Storage System available at Spotlight stores Australia. The activities can still be created and used without this storage caddy. Ziplock bags would be a sufficient storage solution for these activities. I have included a shopping list to help you purchase the additional items required for this resource, however, users are encouraged to use what they already have within their own resource collection at home.
☆ Alphabetical order - students put the letters of the alphabet in order
☆ Beetle Legs - students match the letter of the alphabet on the beetle to the letter written on a peg (giving the beetle their legs)

☆ Mould It! - students use playdough to mould the letters of the alphabet
