School Materials

FUN d'mentals Manipulative Kit

This kit provides a great way for children to begin to develop the foundation for phonemic awareness and beginning critical thinking skills. Children extend their vocabulary and discriminate beginning sounds as they learn the names of all the the animals, their habitats, how the animal is classified, and the outer covering of an animal's body. They sort animals by color, shape, size, pattern, habitat, classification, body covering and number of legs. Children have practice counting all of their animals and complete patterns by predicting which animal should come next in a sequence.


FUN d'mentals Sound Sorting Kit

Use our FUN d’mentals Sound Sorting Kit to learn, practice, and reinforce beginning sounds and rhyming words, strengthen auditory and visual memory, and understand the concept of same/different as they develop and use oral language.  This kit provides the next step after completing the Sound Fun d'mentals Manipulative Kit with your students.  The animals are larger and also includes two sets of our Early Start Cards and game directions. Children love animals and this kit will give you plenty of animals and game ideas to teach and reinforce important phonemic concepts. Children can also learn different habitats for the creatures in our kit as you provide mini biology lessons, and sort animals by their color, habitat, classification, type of body covering or number of legs. Children can be guided to develop vocabulary and language as they learn the names of the animals and construct sentences about them.
