School may be out for summer but spending more time with our kids is an excellent opportunity to help them progress with their reading and writing – and a great way to give them a head start for next term’s academic work.
Many of you will be familiar with LeapFrog, the multi-award-winning educational toy brand. The company is a leading designer and developer of innovative, technology-based educational products – which are both child and parent-friendly!
LeapFrog is 100% focused on developing products to provide the most engaging, effective learning experience – for all ages, in school or home and around the world.
And they have just launched a new product, the LeapReader™ which is ideal for helping children learn to read, write and practice their listening comprehension skills.
Aimed at the 4-8 year age group and retailing around £39.99, the LeapReader™ engages children in imaginative stories with lively character voices while building vocabulary skills and growing reading comprehension skills.
Easy to use, your child simply touches the pen to LeapReader™ books to hear the words read aloud and sound out the words, or they can use the special no- mess paper to practise letters, numbers and words with stroke-by-stroke guidance to help with their handwriting on mess-free, no ink LeapFrog® Learning Paper..
LeapReader™ even plays vocabulary building games and has fun character voices, sound effects and activities to help with comprehension skills.
You can also buy over 40 educator-approved books, apps and activity sets, including some of your children’s favourite characters, like Nemo and the cast of Cars to keep your child interested and involved at every reading stage.
Included in the kit are a LeapReader™ Reading and Writing System, an activity sampler book, one Learning Paper writing sheet plus free downloads of one Audio Book Bundle, one Music Album and one Trivia Fun pack.
You can find it on Amazon.
