When you're little and just starting school everything is exciting. You loved going to school each day and learning was so much fun. When your kids are in that stage, it's a great time to encourage them. Goonie just started pre-K this year, and loves everything about it including math! He was sent some great early learning toys from Reeves International
to review and play with.
Reeves International has different early learning toys and games for the smallest kids in the family all the way through middle school and beyond. We've been working with Goonie on basic math, addition and subtraction, so the first board we tested out and played with is the It All Adds Up math board. Simply push the buttons down and the answer is revealed. A simple system that doesn't even require batteries to make it work. It's small enough to take on the road and doesn't even have parts that come off, that may disappear.
Goonie had a lot of fun finding the answers to the math problems he already knew and then had even more fun finding new answers as he played with the board.
We let him play with the Multiplication Magic Keyboard as well - this board he's just starting to understand but he lit up as the answers were revealed to him to new fun math problems. He's still young, and learning and math are still fun and we love being able to offer him options to encourage him to continue that love of learning.
I mentioned before the boards are low-tech, absolutely no batteries required. You simply push one of the math problems and the answer appears as you push it down. This is great for kids to play and learn with math and not always need a helping hand from a parent. It's easy to pack and play in the car too. And as Goonie pointed out - it can also dub as a countdown for a rocketship take off! He loves math but he loves to be imaginative too :).
