LeapFrog has had a presence in our house for almost a decade. From our Sebby’s first Scout to our new LeapStart that that’s been helping Quincy and Edison become better readers, LeapFrog products have helped build confidence in learning for my children.
How does LeapStart help children develop a love for reading? It’s an interactive reading system. It’s simple – make reading fun with storybooks that talk! I love that I can have one tool to help two kids learn. Sometimes Sebby jumps in too! They all have so much fun!
Here’s some of the great educational features about LeapStart from LeapFrog
• Interactive learning system and replayable activities that get kids excited about learning
• Activities include two levels so kids can play and learn at the right level
• Library of more than 25 books (each sold separately), including two Learn to Read book sets
• Introduces everything from ABCs to music for a wellrounded curriculum
• Library of 400+ activities teaches preschool through first grade skills
It’s like LeapFrog knows my kids! The LeapStart is tough and easy to use. Not only is the LeapStart a kid tough device, it has carrying handles to take it on the go. The attached grow-with-me stylus promotes proper writing grip and triggers engaging audio with just a touch to a page of a storybook.
We’re currently mastering the Volume One Learn to Read books, which are great for my new readers. These engaging books encourage children to touch pages, pictures, individual letters and words to help build early reading skills, including short and long vowels. Just like Quincy’s reading worksheets, each story in “Learn to Read” Volume 1 has a Words in This Story section to familiarize her with words she’ll find in the story. One of my favorite features is k Say It, Sound It and Spell It icons. Simply touch an icon and a word with the stylus on the page to hear each word and listen to the word sounded out.
We’ll be adding Learn to Read Volume 2 to our holiday wish list to keep learning and reading with LeapFrog. With the new set of books, the kids will learn advanced phonics, vowel teams and consonant blends.
