My kids love to learn, and I do what I can to make sure they have plenty around to help them do it. I recently received, for review, the Teach My Preschooler kit from Teach My.
Teach My was founded in 2007 by Mom Entrepreneur, Christy Cook. Christy realized that parents are the most important teachers, when trying to educate her then 18-month old son, Finn. She scoured educational supply stores to find learning activities only to find that no one offered all-in-one kit. After teaching her own son to read, she aimed to make it easier (and less expensive) for other parents to do the same, resulting in the award winning Teach My Baby, Teach My Toddler and Teach My Preschooler kits.
The Teach My Preschooler Kit is an all-in-one learning kit for preschooler aged children, ages 3-6 yrs. The kit is divided into four sections—Ready to Read, Ready to Print, Ready for 1-100, and Ready for Math (addition and subtraction)—to teach your preschooler. NO batteries and NO DVD’s are required to use the kit. It includes an assortment of goodies aimed at teaching your preschooler the basics they need to know with 10 readers, flashcards, posters, a printing guide, and “magic” drawing board. The four sections are available individually, as well, but you do save if you buy them all in one kit. Plus, you get the nifty carrying case, so you take your preschool on the go.
The Teach My Preschooler kit is really a great tool for the parent that wants to make learning fun, get their preschooler ready for kindergarten, or just refresh their preschoolers skills. Mister and Sister both enjoy using the kit. Math is Mister’s strong point, so he literally skipped the Numbers to 100 and went straight for the addition and subtraction flip books. Here’s Mister doing some math with it…
Sister enjoys being read to, so she loved the readers and making the letter sounds.
I like that the addition and subtraction books are flip book style and that they have the thicker coated pages. In fact, that is the only thing I would change about the kit, is make the other books (the readers and the numbers to 100 book) flip style and coated pages. Of course, that would probably add to the cost of the kits. Otherwise, we love it. I especially love that I can use it with BOTH kids, and that BOTH enjoy it. All in all, I wish I had known about Teach My when my kids were a lot younger. It would have saved me a lot of hours and resources (not to mention cold hard cash)!
Now, one lucky TBC reader will win their own Teach My kit (winner will choose Teach My Baby, Teach My Toddler, or Teach My Preschooler).
Good luck. ***I received a product sample to facilitate this review. All opinions are my own.***
