|12/12/2012||Posted by Tricia under Games, Giveaway|
I’ve been sharing alot about my favorite tablet for kids electronics and the LeapFrog Leappad 2 tops my list. The LeapPad2 has become my son’s go to kids electronic for stories, games, music, videos and more. I love that he picks it up and brings it with where ever we go. Saves him for boredom and saves my sanity. With most high prices electronics like cell phones, tables and Ipads having the LeapPad 2 is a great inexpensive device that I know I can count on for quality educational content for my children. No ads, no interruptions and no content gets added to the tablet unless I add it myself safely through LeapFrog’s 325+ online app center for LeapPad, LeapPad2 and the Leapster Gs.
What Makes Ultra eBooks Unique? Kids will…
Read at their own pace with text levels that adjust automatically
To support reading development, a text must be at an optimal level of difficulty. Three levels of text vary in complexity based on the reader’s performance in comprehension activities.
Hear words sounded out to help build phonics skills
When a child gets stuck on a word, he can touch on it to see letters highlight as the word is sounded out. This helps foster an understanding of letter-sound relationships—the building blocks of phonics.
Build comprehension with innovative activities
With the launch of the new Learn to Read Collection, we’re introducing new mini-games and activities designed to tap a child’s background knowledge, encourage inference-making, and prompt prediction-making—interactions known to promote comprehension. These activities encourage readers to think more deeply about the story and assess their level of understanding.
My children are at different reading levels. My 4 yr old is in preschool still learning the alphabet and their sounds and my 7 yr old son is a avid 1st grade reader. His comprehension of letters, words and sounds is incredible. He reads stories that are higher than his grade level and on a scale of 1 to 10 where he should be reading at a 3 his teacher says his reading level and comprehension is an 8!! (mom brag worthy) I can’t tell you how proud I am of my son. I would love to say that Leapfrog learning devices have brought him to the skill level he is today. We’ve been using LeapFrog educational devices, and games since he’s been born. LeapFrog learning devices combined with his school education he’s really a remarkable reader. Each child learns at their own pace which is why the ebooks are so great. They can read the same story but as their skill level increase the stories get a little more descriptive adding words that are just a little bit more advanced for the skilled reader. By doing this the child can increase their vocabulary as well as reading comprehension and understanding of the story. Combined with fun mini games and animated sequences draw children into the stories and keep them coming back for more.
