Stones, Pebbles & More
Yellow Door: Stones, Pebbles & More
Yellow Door’s learning stones and pebbles sets appeal to a child’s natural instinct to explore, investigate, sort and collect. Specially cast from a durable resin and stone mix, they are ideal for use in sand, water and small-world play – indoors and out! Big enough for the smallest child to handle safely, each pebble is engraved and hand-painted. Also included with each set is a handy teacher’s guide.
Yellow Door: Come Alive
Young children’s interactions with technology should be active, playful, hands-on, engaging and empowering. Those principles are very well expressed in the NAEYC Fred Rogers Joint position statement on technology but finding developmentally appropriate software for Early Childhood can pose a challenge. When children know stories by heart they love to tell them to you. Yellow Door’s “Come Alive” series helps children learn with a variety of hands-on experiences involving popular nursery rhymes, superheroes and more.
Yellow Door: Active Learning
Yellow Door’s “Active Learning” series encourages number recognition, letter recognition and understanding of phonemes. Yellow Door’s Active Learning Vests have clear PVC pockets on the front for use with the Active Alphabet Cards, Number Cards and Phonics Cards. The vests are phthalate-free and washable.
Alphabet Cards – 52 double-sided cards show each letter as both upper and lowercase plus initial sound pictures and photos
Number Cards – 52 double-sided cards show numbers 1-10 as numerals, number words, color photos and dot arrays

Yellow Door: Tune Into
Yellow Door’s “Tune Into” series offers fun and flexible listening games with different levels of play. From sounds at home to outside sounds; from sounds on the farm to nursery rhymes and initial sounds, these fabulous listening games develop the essential sound discrimination skills that underpin good phonological and phonemic awareness. Ideal for early childhood, kindergarten, 1st grade and special education, listening games can be played at different levels to suit the needs of groups or individuals.
Offering more flexibility than traditional listening lotto games, Yellow Door’s large and durable photo cards can be dealt among players to provide a different game each time. Choose from games at three different levels to challenge children to discriminate between the various sounds and pictures. The audio CD also includes each of the sounds as an individual track. This is ideal for introducing the sounds and for working with children who need a lot of support with listening.
