Playing around learning

4.  ABC blocks with Hangul words (40 blocks=240 sides),

(colors, shapes, how many, over/under, larger/smaller, directions, etc.)

5.  Scrabble

scrabble tiles

6.  preschool coloring book created for Korean (letters, up/down/above/below, shapes, colors, unscramble letters, practice sheets to Hangul and Hanja letters, match animal to home, things that start with the letter…),


7.  activity book on Korean topics – word search, how many words can you make from these syllable blocks, word maze, crossword, crack the code, secret message, unscramble letters, coloring pages, which word doesn’t fit – grouping words by type)


8.  Go Stop
