Mother, Father, I am sick! 🚑
Call the doctor very quick! 👨⚕️
This popular rhyme is commonly heard when kids pretend to play as doctors. When you ask a bunch of kids what they want to be when they grow up, for sure there would be someone (or most of them!) who would say they want to be a nurse or a doctor. It is indeed a noble and highly-admired profession, and if your child is also an aspiring little doctor, this box is perfect for him! Let’s do a quick check-up… on the contents of The Doctor Box!

- Game mechanics: In this game, the ambulance is taking a patient from their home to the hospital. Race your opponent through town to be the first player to reach the hospital! To start, place your playing piece on the start. Roll the die and move your playing piece according to the number rolled. If you land on a letter space, name the letter and/or the letter sound pictured on the space you landed. If you answer correctly, move ahead to one space and stay there. But if you land on a Go Back 1 space or a Go Back 2 space, move back according to the number of spaces you rolled and stay there. If you land on the crosswalk shortcut, follow the arrow pictured on the game mat to move ahead. If you land in the One Way space, stay there. Players should continue moving around the endless traffic circle until they land on the Exit space. The first player to arrive at the hospital and exactly reach the last space on the game mat wins the game!

Slide the strip on her shirt to display the next rhyming picture and repeat the previous steps.
- About the game: This game helps preschoolers develop phonological awareness by identifying rhyming sounds and words. You can extend this game by creating more cards with rhyming words! Or ask your kid to find objects around the house that rhyme.
3 Which Doctor's Bag?
- Materials: Which Doctor's Bag? game mat, Which Doctor's Bag cards, doctor bag cutouts, glue stick
- Game mechanics: Help the doctors get their bags ready for the day! To start, fold each of the doctor bag cutouts in half and glue them to the game mat. Next, select a card then name the word on the card. Help your child segment the word into syllables by clapping as you say each syllable. Let your child repeat. You can raise a finger each time your child claps. Ask him to identify how many syllables are in the word based on how many fingers you have raised. Help him place the card inside the corresponding doctor's bag based on the number of syllables in the word.
- About the game: Learning how to segment words into syllables is also an important pre-reading skill for kids. This will make reading easier for them soon! You can also add more cards using words they are fond of, to make learning more interesting for them!
