When Zoe was born and I only had one child, I was really good at teaching her stuff. She new her letters at a very young age. We sang songs together and it was just easy to have that one on one time. With Miles, it’s been quite a challenge for me to sit down with him. My goal for this summer is to make sure that Miles knows his ABC’s and I wasn’t quite sure how to do it, because Zoe is also going to be home from preschool and every since preschool, she’s needed more stimulation when she’s at home. She always wants to go somewhere, and well I’m not up for doing something outside of the house every day. What am I going to do to entertain them and teach them at the same time???
This was about where my thought mentality was when Teach My contacted me and asked me to review their product.
Teach My, is an award winning all-in-one learning kit available for Baby, Toddlers, and Preschoolers. Teach My was founded in 2007 by Mompreneur, Christy Cook. Realizing that parents are the most important teachers, Christy scoured educational supply stores to find learning activities to educate her 18-month old son, Finn. Not finding an all-in-one kit, Christy aimed to make it easier and less expensive for parents, so she created Teach My Toddler, the award winning first and only all-in-one learning kit for toddlers. After the toddler kit was such a success, the baby and preschooler kit followed. I decided to skip the baby and toddler kits and jump straight into preschool activities. The Teach My Preschooler kit comes with four sections, Ready to Read, Ready to Print, Ready for 1-100, and Ready for Math.
Zoe already has already experience one year of preschool, she knows how to write most of her letters and is about at the stage of learning to read and write words. She already writes words if we give her all the letters, making the Ready to Print portion of the kit a good starting place for her.
In addition to making sure Miles knows his numbers I thought it would be good to introduce him to numbers. He jumped right into matching them and wanted to start learning his numbers beyond the first ten. With the Ready for 1-100 he will be able to learn quite a few numbers.
Each section contains coordinated learning activities. The innovative and creative teaching tools encourage preschool learning and school readiness. The consistent nature of the tools and supervised one-on-one time provides plenty of opportunity for repetition and focused learning. Children I’ve noticed in mine at least, have short attention spans, in order to maximize their learning time it’s recommended that you limit the learning period to 20 minutes a day. You can see, he quickly lost his attention and reverted to playing with the rubber band.
