My daughter Leah just finished her official last day of Preschool. She was such a great student and had so much fun. My husband and I decided to reward her for all of her hard work with the VTech InnoTab 2S Wi-Fi Learning App Tablet (which we were so excited to receive for review!) One of the things we told Leah before she could receive her gift was that it needed to be used for fun and for learning. Since summer was approaching I decided to tell her about the Summer Brain Drain.
Have you ever heard of…Summer Brain Drain? It “occurs when students are away from the structured learning environment of a classroom and lose the months of knowledge they gained during the school year because they are not regularly exercising their brains. According to research from the Center for Summer Learning at Johns Hopkins University, students typically lose one to two months of reading and math skills during the summer break. But there are many things parents can do to help keep children’s minds active during the summer months and avoid these setbacks.”
Leah tried out several of the apps and then she decided to take pictures of things around the house. I decided to turn this into a learning game. So she took pictures and I would ask her what each letter each picture started with. I couldn’t believe how well she did! She took pictures of sister Charlotte, her barbies and some of her friends that came over later.
The really great thing about this Kids Tablet is there are “17 Built-in Apps, plus Wish List Maker
InnoTab® 2S Wi-Fi Learning App Tablet offers your child more features than any other VTech® Learning Tablet. With 17 built-in apps your child will enjoy InnoTab® 2S the minute they open it. From the camera to the MP3 player to Art Studio, InnoTab® 2S is ready for snapping photos, listening to music and developing your child’s creativity.”
Leah has already made a wish list of some of the games she wants, including Disney Fairies and Disney Princesses! I really like that each game has the ages that the game is appropriate for. We let her pick out the Disney Fairies game and she really got the hang of it!
