“I love using the Theme pack from Fortune Cookie Mom. It is very easy to follow and convenient for parents or teachers to prepare the lesson. My children are 3 and 5 years old. They practice writing, counting, sorting, recognizing new characters with the materials included in the theme pack. There are puzzles and game idea included. We got the color theme pack and it was well-made and fit the need of teaching young children. It also help develop the child’s visual discrimination of sizes, which prepares my children for later work in writing and mathematics.”
This is a Chinese New Year Rounded Lanterns – Year of the Rat.
