I don’t typically review anything that’s not book or movie related but I have something special for you. A friend of mine recently launched her own educational business (her story here) and she let me try it out and give some feedback. I admit that at first I was skeptical about it because I think of myself as a creative person and I do have a degree in education so I know how to make a lesson plan, but now that I’ve started using the kit Gage and I are both sold!
This is why I think it’s a great gift idea! Sometimes moms and dads just don’t know what they should be doing to prepare kids for school. This makes it so easy! It’s a subscription service so you could just gift the kit and one month of activities and see how much the person likes it. Check out their different plans here. This is a perfect gift for grandparents to give because both grandkids and parents will benefit.
Here’s the deal-You buy a kit for your Pre-K to 2nd grader (there are 2 choices) and it comes with everything you need for daily 5-10 minute learning activities for you and your child. Here’s what the kit looks like.
Here are a few of the activites
He loves all of these activities and there have only been 2 that he had trouble completely with the concept and I’m glad. I think it’s great to encourage learning new things and to know where the problem areas are (for Gage that has been rhyming and estimating). We’re still on the first month, but I do plan on signing up for the service. It’s learning made fun and easy and it comes delivered to my door. What’s not to like?
