Having physical pieces to snap together helps children incorporate their muscles into learning. This hands-on way promotes memory function and can help children retain the information learned. Plus playing with the alligators makes a cognitive task much more fun to learn!
Extend the learning by coming up with different creative activities to do with the alligators. Create a matching game by placing all the heads in a pile and all the tails in another pile. Pick one from each pile. If you have a match, snap them together and keep the alligator. If not, put them back and the next player takes a turn. Or snap all the alligators together then pick one up and either say the letter, the sound or sounds it makes, or a word that starts with that letter. This introduces phonemic awareness and builds vocabulary. Every way you play, kids are gaining an interest in print concepts and taking strides towards a solid foundation in learning!
