Thanks to MomSelect and LeapFrog, I received an educational kit from the new LeapReader series and my Bubby is learning skills, and Bug is learning confidence. I did receive product for this post, however all opinions, ideas, and photos are entirely my own.
Yes, I just said that. Learning CAN be fun for kids, but you need the right tools. We weren’t all born to be teachers (even those of us that have been teaching our own 6 children for 24 years now), but I’ve learned over the years that even I can teach if I leave it up to the experts that are willing to share their knowledge and fun tools with me in my home.
The experts in fun and education at LeapFrog agreed to send me two LeapReaders, some LeapReader books, workbooks, Talking Words Factory flash cards, work sheets, and some fun 3D glasses to go along with the LeapFrog Disney-Pixar Monsters University 3D book that Bubby can’t stop “reading”. Yes I said reading. He’s struggled with that skill. Letter recognition isn’t a problem, but getting him to string those letters into words, sentences, stories, has been a struggle.
We gathered together, as a family, for a fun LeapFrog LeapReader “Ready, Set, Read & Write” Party (it’s always a party around here) and the kids were excited to LEARN with these interactive tools. The books read to you, help you sound out letters, teach letter recognition, and so much more. All facilitated by this LeapReader. Load the books from your computer to your LeapFrog LeapReader with simple steps that are all spelled out, and they’ve done all of the work for you to make this a fun learning experience.
This isn’t just learning time, this is also bonding time. Your child will be captivated while you walk him or her through the many interactive learning activities.
Bubby built up his confidence going through the Read, Write, Listen book with the help of his Cars friends. See, these people over at LeapFrog are really clever. They use your child’s favorite characters to encourage them to learn. And it works!
My Bug is in first grade this year. She can read and write and her grades are actually quite good. But her handwriting is lacking and these books help her build those skills. The Magic Pencil actually guides her, with words, with the right way to trace the letters which improves her ability to perform on a higher level. The work sheets are getting a work out too.
This Get Ready for Kindergarten Book is playing an invaluable role right now in getting Bubby ready for Kindergarten next year. I was struggling to get him interested in reading. Now, he jumps up every morning and can’t wait to dive in. He can work in these books, and with the other tools, independently or we can work on them together.
If you want more information on these innovative, fun learning tools, be sure to ask me. Or you can check them out on YouTube to find out more about all of the amazing products they have available for your kids. Everything we received helps your children, from 4 to 9, build on their skills so there’s something for everyone. Oh and speaking of YouTube, Bug is kind of fond of the sing-a-long feature that was preloaded on her LeapReader. See for yourself and sing-a-long.
