Mathseeds Announcement

This is due for release in May, but we have been allowed a sneak preview of what is planned.  Reading Eggs has really helped my eldest with his ability to read, so I have high hopes for Mathseeds to give his mathematical capabilities a real boost.

It seems of a similar vein to Reading Eggs with a placement test planned, so your child starts at an appropriate level.  It is very colourful and engaging, it begins quite easy, which is perfect for four year olds to get started, with plenty of repetition for them to begin to recognise their numbers and start counting.  At the end of a lesson out pops a character from an acorn, this is a surprisingly effective incentive to keep progressing around the map.  My two are keen to see what will come out of the next one, so it keeps them focused on learning and moving forward.

Reading Eggs itself was so appealing; my eldest son has actually completed it.  He passed all his tests and is a much more confident reader for the experience.  So I have a feeling Mathseeds will be just as popular and help develop his core Maths skills.

I will review the lessons fully after the release in May, but had to share the news with my followers, because I am sure you will be as excited as we are!

Keep an eye on the website for more information.
