To the new owner of  CHILDREN’S WORK BOX curriculums:

Welcome!  Let me tell you a little about the The Doorbell Rang curriculum.

Activities for children are measured as beginning learners, intermediate learners, and experienced learners.  Each child learns at their own pace.  By giving them opportunity to learn at the level they are able to understand, children will learn a concept with a positive approach.  They will be eager to learn the next step as you scaffold each activity to fit their ability to learn a more complex concept.

The Doorbell Rang is an excellent book to springboard into many math concepts.  It remained one of my favorite books for learning numbers and how to use numbers.  I have included a wide variety of math concepts and activities to provide children with enjoyable learning experiences that increase school readiness skills.

Children in my classroom enjoyed repeating the story and activities often.  After reading The Doorbell Rang for story time, I would put it in my classroom library for further reading opportunities.  That old saying, “Practice makes perfect” has merit when it comes to reading skills and learning new concepts.  So repeat the story and activities as often as the children are interested.

I hope you find the curriculum easy to use and enjoyable for the children whether in a large classroom setting, a small group of children, or with one child.
