Product Description:

A favorite for the age 2-to-5 set because of the variety of activities included. The junior Fit-A- Space panel is sized for easier use for tots, while four shape squares provide basic shape sorting. Pegging is introduced with two peg-play vehicles using Punkinhead pegs. Also included are 3 "Familiar Things" twopiece puzzles. Resealable box makes for portability and, hopefully, neatness.

Publisher Description:

This assortment of activities may be used in several ways to entertain little ones and help them learn. In addition to having fun with basic pegging and puzzle-making, they will learn about shapes, colors and numbers. They can even use the puzzle pieces to make up a fun story!

Category Description for Memoria Press Classical Curriculum:

Memoria Press now offers complete Curriculum Manuals and grade-level curriculum packages for PK-10 using the classical methodology. Recitation is used in every level for memorization of basic facts, systematic phonics and good books are used for reading education, copywork is used for teaching Bible truths, and music and art are included for enrichment in the early (K-3) levels. Each Curriculum Manual contains complete lesson plans for a one-year course of study.

The Curriculum Manuals are well-formatted and easy to use. In the front of each book you will find a checklist of the materials needed at that level, an explanation of this curriculum, instructions for lesson implementation, a recommended schedule and blank schedule for your own planning purposes, and 33 weeks of detailed lesson plans. Lessons include assignments from the books used at each grade level, as well as activity suggestions. The appendices include a variety of material for that grade level, and may include: prayers, letter activities, recitation, memory verses, read-aloud book list, poetry list and selections, and a paintings/music list for kindergarten and first grade. These pages are reproducible for family or classroom use.

Although most of the guides have been available for several years, the curriculum was restructured in 2015, with many of the programs originally included in 3rd grade now with a slower pacing to span 3rd and 4th grade. Guides for grades 3 and up have been modified to reflect this change, while the lower-level guides have only had minor changes. If you are already midway into the program with the original guides, you can still continue in that track with the older guides, now titled Acclerated Classical Core Curriculum Manual. You can find these along with the complete list of curriculum resources used with them on our website.

We have complete grade-level resource packages, consumable packages for “refill,” new user packages for levels that reuse resources from a previous level, read-aloud packages for each level and science and enrichment packages for the early levels. Curriculum resources are also listed individually (see website for specific contents of consumables and read-aloud packages). Please note that several of the programs include First Form Latin and Classical Composition, which should be completed in order, regardless of what is in the grade level package.If you have a student entering the program after fourth grade, you will need to start them in Classical Composition: Fable Stage and/or First Form Latin instead of what might be in the package.

This series is for the parent who wants a good classical curriculum which is outlined and ready to use. Simply open the book and follow the instructions. You will be well on your way to a quality education for your young ones. ~ Donna

There will be families who are very thankful for the appearance of this curriculum; for years it's seemed as though classical education and special needs might be incompatible. Then comes Cheryl Swope who just...does it. Not only did she start walking down the classical path with her special needs twins, but she quickly realized that it was the very best possible educational path for them. The combination of systematic repetition, language skills emphasis, gracious implementation and quality content has reaped amazing results, transforming their challenging lives into those with meaningful expressions of beauty and service.

Simply Classical Curriculum, written by Mrs. Swope, is essentially a set of lesson plans coupled with a choice reading list that moves gradually into some of the Memoria Press curriculum products (i.e. First Start Reading and Classical Phonics) as well as other early level curriculum products (i.e. Rod & Staff preschool workbooks). A quick look at these lesson plans might cause you to conclude that it is simply a typical classical program slooooowed way down. You're not exactly wrong, but you're not exactly right either. It's rather that the possibility of slowing way down is built into the lessons. The daily collection of lessons - rich in quality literature - progress slowly and surely through the process of laying a very solid foundation in classical learning. The plans/program offers 10 key features:

  • - The rich, beautiful content of a classical Christian education
  • - A slower pace with ample review
  • - An emphasis on books with elegant illustrations to cultivate a taste for excellence
  • - A multi-sensory presentation of material
  • - Oral language components
  • - Skills checklists
  • - Integration across subjects
  • - Themed levels
  • - A trivium approach
  • - Socratic questioning

Introductory information for each level includes a program overview, readiness assessment, FAQs concerning where to begin, list of read-aloud books, supply list, brief teacher notes, and a week-by-week chart for recitation and memory work. The detailed readiness assessment for each level covers language, cognitive ability, emotional development, fine-motor skills, and gross motor skills and is followed by a set of skills in each area to develop during this level of the program.

Other than making sure you have read-alouds and supplies for the day, prep is practically nil. The four-days-a-week, weekly lesson plans provide a daily checklist with specific tasks in each of several areas such as calendar, alphabet/numbers, and motor skills. In levels B and C, Simply Classical Crafts is incorporated into the arts/crafts tasks. Opening and closing the learning period with prayer is not only encouraged but prompted with suggestions for prayers to learn. There are 34 weeks of plans plus eight weeks of review. 110 - 180 pgs, pb.

The Core Curriculum Packages include the Curriculum Manual (Lesson Plans) plus books/workbooks used throughout the year. The Read Aloud Packages include all the books used as read alouds for the year. The Supply Packages are a collection of school supplies that are needed to complete the program. ~ Janice

My kids loved these puzzles. They are durable and hold up to a lot of roughness. They also clean up very easily. I am purchasing for my granddaughter.

Instant Hit
This toddler set was an instant hit with our 20 month old grandson and the perfect way to introduce him to some wonderful Lauri products. Can't wait to gift him with some of the more advanced puzzles as he ages!

Another winner from Lauri Toys! Most 'foam' or 'rubber' products on the market today are unhealthy petroleum products but Lauri's toys are all natural crepe (NOT latex) rubber So no worries if little ones love to chew these pieces- and they do seem to love the texture for just that! The puzzles are my favorite since once they are put together they STAY together Much easier to keep track of and keep picked up This set is excellent for fine motor skills and even my young school-age children enjoy playing with the various puzzles This tote is a great value for the price and has served us well for years Our 3rd toddler is enjoying it as we speak The only odd thing is the puzzle with three shapes (circle square triangle) is half as thin as the other puzzles and so it is a bit more difficult for the little ones to put together and it pops apart when you move it unlike the other thick and chunky puzzles It's not a deal-breaker though! I also highly recommend their Lauri Primary Tote

All the Lauri toys are good investments This particular set-The Toddler Tote-was ESPECIALLY liked by our 2 year old son and 4 year old son Its box made it very portable It's a good starter pack for trying out the Lauri toys We bring it to church office visits have it for a babysitter's activity and OF COURSE use it as a busy activity while homeschooling Lauri even has a list of activities to do with the items in the tote besides the obvious This makes a great gift too I recommend this item first of all Lauri toys especially if you want to try them out Like my kids I fell in love with all the Lauri toys and we eventually bought other products
