We have some new & unique book recommendations coming up on our #Instagram stories..... These #books provide kids with a connection to their roots and help boost self-identity which many of us find lacking!
📌With Toka Box, kids explore Books, Culture, History & STEM (to name a few) not just individually, but also cohesively and in an age-appropriate manner. Understanding each other's culture is the easiest way to understand why people behave the way they do! In today's multicultural world where our kids are growing up, these books provide a beautiful path to understand one's own culture, that of their peers and also helps make connections.⠀
📌A child's brain understands STEM better when they build a connection - either with themselves, their past, their culture and so on, as opposed to a traditional linear thinking method! This month, as we dig into the past and explore the #indusvalleycivilization we also make connections with our common past! ⠀
📌Your child's STEM experience is also leading to deeper explorations of themselves. As they make their secret scripts and seals, in this month's box they are not just doing it because we said so! Rather they are putting themselves in the shoes of a little girl from the Indus Valley. They read about her life in the valley, explore the Indian subcontinent, where Afghanistan was, find out what the people did for a living then, discuss what was used as money in those times, what are caravans and so on!
📌 While doing so they are forming connections that better aid in STEM learning. The experience would definitley not be the same if we only read the book or only did an activity. It’s the whole package! Be prepared to get kids curious about their past and equip them with unbeatable skills that will prepare them for the future! ⠀
