My baby, Ricky, has big shoes to fill. His big sister is in college and is considered a walking encyclopedia. Her nickname is “Fun Facts”. My oldest son, 8, is gifted. He is in 3rd grade and reading at a high school level. He also is doing algebra for fun. Ricky is my baby. Ricky has this opinion of himself that we find bizarre; he doesn’t think he is smart. We have no idea where he has heard this or why he would believe it since he has an amazing vocabulary and a memory that would rival an elephant. But he does.
He just started Kindergarten a few weeks ago. When I gave him the Get Ready for Kindergarten book that you use with the Tag Interactive Pen, he told me “But I’m already in Kindergarten”. I explained to him that he just started so he is more than ready to be ready!
My experience: What I found was that he could do the book on his own or as a joint activity with the family. It is amazing how quickly a child can pick up this information when they are having fun. The “Get Ready for Kindergarten” goes over reading and math fundamentals including the alphabet and counting. Also, most of the interactive toys can be annoying and loud. We found the Leap Frog Tag system enjoyable and easy to use.
What Ricky Experienced: Ricky was able to see how much he already knew. Within the first few minutes he was finding numbers, saying his letters and even identifying dinosaurs by the pictures! His confidence was boosted after only a few minutes of playing with the Tag system! He enjoyed the patterns and consonant blend activities and even discussed them during dinner. He told me he loved it because he was “learning without having to stop having fun”!
Kids are like sponges and the ability to learn is wasted on so many toys. The Tag System with Get Ready for Kindergarten is fun, very educational and a great way to remind your kids how smart they really are.
