I Received free LeapFrog Products in order to host the party sponsored by LeapFrog and MommyParties. All opinions expressed are my own.
A few months ago my youngest child Aubrey entered Kindergarten. At this point she knew all of her letters, and how to write most of them. At our first meet and greet with the teacher we were told that in order to move on to the next grade, all of the students would need to know a minimum of 50+ sight words. I’m going to be honest, this really worried me. Over the summer I worked with Aubrey on learning her sight words but she just didn’t seem to get it and she would get frustrated when she couldn’t remember. So a couple of months ago when I was asked to host a LeapFrog party featuring the LeapReader Reading and Writing System, I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to try a new way of learning for Aubrey.
For the party we were sent a box full of goodies including (2) LeapReaders which are preloaded with books and apps and an assortment of LeapReader™ books including:
•Learn to Write Letters With Mr. Pencil Writing Workbook
•Talking Words Factory Writing Workbook
•LeapFrog Disney-Pixar Monsters University 3D book
•Also includes 16 pairs of LeapFrog Monsters University 3D glasses!
•Get Ready for Kindergarten book
•Talking Words Factory Flash Cards
•Two LeapReader™ Sampler books
My nieces are all around the same age as Aubrey and perfect for the LeapReader Reading and Writing system so I invited them over to try out the new systems with Aubrey. They were very excited especially when they saw the Monster’s University book. I set up different areas in the living room this way they could all enjoy all of the books and activities.
The girls had a blast and I was amazed at how fast they caught on with how to use the readers. The pens are the perfect size for little hands and can be used in both left and right hands. In addition to be able to help your child read along with the books, these LeapReaders can also be used as a pen to help your child learn to write. The girls loved learning how to write their name with this pen, they thought it was a magical wand.
Since we held the party after school, I knew the kids would be starving so we ordered some pizza and orange drinks to enjoy during our get together.
Below are some pictures of each of the girls showing off their writing skills! Can you tell how proud they all are.
Included in our Party Box were some cute awards which I handed out to all the girls after the party. They loved these and felt so proud of themselves.
Every child has to learn how to read and write, so why not make the experience as fun as possible so that an early age they learn to love reading. One of Aubrey’s favorite things to do now is take her LeapReader into her room and “read” books, play games and practice her writing skills. I am so impressed that even after a few weeks with the LeapReader she is mastering many of her sight words.
