Dear Class of 2025,
You are cordially invited to our LeapReader Ready, Set, Read & Write Party of the Year! If you are ready to have some major fun this week in Mrs. A’s class, then come see JetSet Fam during Tuesday morning centers and we’ll have a blast!
– JetSet Mom
For those who know me IRL, it’s not a surprise to find out that I take JetSet Tot’s education and school pretty seriously. Yes, I know she’s only in 1st grade, but education is one of the biggest and most important lifelong gifts as a parent I can give my child. I also adore the other students she spends more than 30 hours a week with inside her classroom. The children are so amazing and to watch how much they grow from September to June always seems to leave me scratching my head in wonder.
And I also love seeing ‘how’ children learn. Not exactly through lessons, or assignments, but what little things trigger their little brains to light up and make them excited about reading and writing. When LeapFrog generously offered to send over two of their LeapReaders pre-loaded with books and learning apps, I jumped at the chance to participate and bring them to her class. You can say we had a very special “Ready, Set, Read & Write” Party! during one of our recent morning sessions.
Obviously, the children were beyond excited once they saw everything LeapFrog sent. They couldn’t wait to get started, and once they did, the hour and a half absolutely flew by. The LeapReader allowed the children not only to work independently, but to work in teams helping assist each other across regardless of what level each child was at. They enjoyed working together and it was great to introduce a new tool to for them to enjoy the process of learning.
We covered three essential experiences: Learn to Read – sounding out words, reads sentences, and lets children play games and puzzles. Learn to Write – provides children with interactive guidance as they practice writing letters and numbers on special paper and Learn through Listening – Audio books, learning songs and trivia challenges to build comprehension skills and vocabulary.
The LeapFrog materials we practiced were: Learn to Write Letters with Mr. Pencil, Talking Words Factory Writing Workbook, Talking Words Factory Flash Cards, LeapReader Sampler books and the big hit of our party… the LeapFrog Disney-Pixar Monster University 3D book with special 3D glasses!
Overall, Mrs. A’s first grade class had a blast and the smiles filling the classroom were huge. I’m so happy The JetSet Family had the opportunity to share this fabulous learning resource with Tot’s friends and classmates. To see children having such a fun time learning was just as exciting as a parent.
Promotional consideration has been furnished by LeapFrog. A LeapReader party kit was provided for our “Ready, Set, Read & Write” Party! On occasion, contributors of The JetSet Family receive products, compensation and/or services gratis or at discounted rates. This practice does not hinder the influencer’s point of view.
