was quite pleased to have a code to review this. I was at a lose what to do today, youngest had a meltdown to
rival all meltdowns and I put my foot down and decided he could no longer meet
up with his friend. He needed to learn
no means no and if his behaviour does not improve he will miss out on fun
treats along the way. But I still have
a long afternoon to fill when the tantrum finally ended. I thought it would be a good time to try out
are already big fans of Reading Eggs, so it’s nice to develop mathematical
ability now. The lessons were very
colourful, interesting and varied so it kept his attention throughout. It meant we had something nice to do together
and could put the earlier tantrum firmly behind us.
characters are engaging with funny voices and the occasional ditty. Mid way through one of the lessons there was
an opportunity to paint pictures with a magic brush, this little break from learning
re-energised him to carry on. There is
lots of do outside the lessons too, as a treat they can head to the playroom or
the arcade for plenty of fun. But the
lessons are so well developed and appealing that youngest was quite happy in
that section anyway.
of motivation is built into Mathseeds, the cracking acorns at the end of a
lesson are quite exciting as children like seeing what will pop out! Then it usually does an entertaining few
actions for you to enjoy, like kissing the screen or falling over! Youngest watches them again and again
is learning the spelling of numbers, which is helpful as usually he just
recognises the number only. Each
segment of the lesson is quite small, so you can stop at any time if your child
has done enough and their progress is saved till next time. If your child struggles to remain focused
you can slowly build up to more segments till eventually they can complete a
lesson in one sitting. We did two today
but he was so keen to see what popped out of the next acorn he refused to stop
after one. It is quite addictive but
with an educational focus.
