A while back I was asked to review the VTech InnoTab MAX which is a tablet for children. You can read my review in this post, but in short, we loved it. Henry still uses it constantly, and he’s learning while he plays! Now I have two great VTech learning cartridges to use with the InnoTab that are up for grabs. The learning cartridges are perfect for preschoolers: Learn to Write with Cody & Cora and Go! Go! Smart Wheels® Busy Day in Alphabet Town. Henry has spent the last few weeks checking out these games, and I have to say, I think they are pretty awesome. He is four years old and will be in Kindergarten next year, so any chance I have to expose him to more reading and writing is great for preparing him for the next step in his education. I’ve noticed that since he’s been playing with these two games that all of a sudden he’s writing more often – practicing letters with stencils and he’s constantly asking me to spell words and he’s been identifying letters in the world around him. So…jackpot! The two games have expanded his interest past the tablet and into our day to day life.
In this day and age technology surrounds us, and I feel as a mother and a former educator that we need to embrace this and use technology to our advantage to help kids grow and learn. I find that my kids are more excited about practicing math or writing when it comes in the form of a video game or app. Who wouldn’t prefer that to a worksheet filled with math facts? I taught preschool years ago and we had some ancient computers in our classroom. What I wouldn’t have given to have some learning tablets for the kids to use! And the Learn to Write with Cody & Cora and Go! Go! Smart Wheels® Busy Day in Alphabet Town games would have been a great asset to my preschool classroom! The games are easy to navigate, have lots of options for play and most importantly, as I said…they teach the children!
