What the experts say:
SMART KIT MARBOTIC: We’ve incorporated the Marbotic letters and numbers + app into our homeschool curriculum for the past several months. Where most apps rely on children interacting with only a screen, Marbotic includes the tactile addition of physical numbers and letters placed on the screen. This game is a great way to introduce early math and literacy concepts, and it’s even more fun to use the app in a foreign language!
Playing WHERE’S MR WOLF game with my students was entertaining and a great game for my preschool class! For this game, I had the children play in a small group of three. I gave each student a specific job, especially the younger ones so they can learn to focus on one thing. For instance, I told one student to pay attention to which animals enter the barn. And, for the other two students, I told them to help each other remember where they put Mr. Wolf down on the board. By allocating a special job to each student, they appeared more focused and helpful with each other given the mixed age of the group.
This game is definitely a must have in the classroom, especially for PreK. I saw first hand the way Where’s Mr Wolf game teaches young children to develop good memory skills, collaboration, and build trust with their peers.
KEEKEE the Rocking Monkey: This adorable little primate wants to keep his balance, and might just have benefits for your kiddo’s brain development. By attending to Keekee’s balance, your child is using complex spatial reasoning to assess the placement of each piece, learning to take turns, and interplay of cause and effect. Such activities may stimulate brain growth in areas also important in social communication, tolerance for frustration, and mind-body integration.
PENGOLOO: One of my favorite games to play with elementary-age kids during speech therapy. The kids love the excitement of looking for and finding the colored eggs while I get to hear them practice their speech sounds or have them complete a language task before their turn is over. It is a win win and keeps our sessions both focused and fun. Not to mention, the added bonus of supporting their memory skills.
SENSORY BIN CORAL RELIEF: I learned how much Sensory bins are beneficial for children… and what I LOVE as a mom, is that my daughters can play for HOURS with! At 3 and 6 years old, they are engaged with actions such as pinching, pouring and scooping, so good for their fine motors skills! They create and tell stories and play alone or together. That said, the best part might be when the nice sensation of the waterbeads helps them to calm down!!
