I haven’t been the best at working with Miles and teaching him things. Honestly, I take it for granted that he’s a really smart kid and can teach himself a lot of things. Since his mind is a little sponge, I love getting resources that can help him learn new things. The Xbox team sent me Kinect Nat Geo TV, it’s a two way tv game. It’s educational TV, National Geographic takes you into the natural habitat and Miles was captivated. At first he said, mom, I don’t know how to play this game. So he sat down and started watching it. He’s still interested in it. The game is geard to 6+ because some reading abilities is required so I’m helping him out with that part. Oh and he liked being turned into a bear!!

I’m really enjoying these two way tv games for the kids. He can watch and learn and then make choices through out the game. Plus the video of himself is just amazing. I’m really amazed at how he becomes part of the show, or the game.
