Since I have a child now, I’ve done lots of research on the best things to do to prepare her for having a successful life. I don’t want to force my child to do a lot of stuff she isn’t interested in, but I do want to give her the skills she needs to be able to accomplish whatever she wants when she gets older! The more I researched, the more I discovered that what your child does in the first six years of their life has a HUGE impact on the rest of their life.
Little Miss goes to a great preschool with a wonderful program, but I wanted to have something that we could use to work on at home as well. Pre K Scholars has been a wonderful learning addition to our household! The 22 week course covers phonics, early reading, early math, handwriting, and science.
In Pre K Scholars, you meet all of the characters of Scholarville, each one representing a different letter. I love that each session is short and has several different aspects of looking at the letters. For each letter, there are sounds and motions (which identifies a motion with each letter), a guessing game, and activities you can print.
Little Miss enjoys doing Pre K Scholars. She doesn’t get on the computer often, so it’s a special treat for her. Plus, the lessons are short enough for her to take them in. At first I thought that they were so short that they weren’t sinking in, but then I started noticing that she knew the letters we have already gone over and the sounds they make better than the ones we haven’t studied yet. And of course the ones that she has done in preschool and at home are REALLY sticking with her! I can’t believe that children are expected to already know their letters before they enter Kindergarten these days, but I know that we’ll be prepared! It will also be great as a refresher during the summer months when they may be relaxing a little at school.
