- Teaches Reading Fluency
- Fluency is a reading term that means a child can recognize common words at a glance, and can read in meaningful chunks, or phrases, rather than reading one word at a time. Fluency contributes to the reader’s enjoyment and comprehension of books.
- Teaches Listening and Reading Comprehension
- As children develop comprehension of books read aloud or independently, they explore the uses and functions of written language. They begin to construct meaning, eventually applying critcal skills to make inferences and draw conclusions.
Product Price: It retails for $24.99.
Our Thoughts: Once again, another fun way for my girls to learn. I love how leapfrog squeezes so many things for them to learn in a fun way. Reading is big in our house right now as my oldest is in Kindergarten and learning to read. Naturally my little one is also ‘interested’ in reading since she wants to do everything her big sister does. So the fact that they are both learning to read with the Tangled game is awesome for me!
If I let them, they’d spend hours upon hours playing with their Explorer and when Tangled arrived they both ran to get the game and fought over who would play first! Needless to say we’ve had to take it from them a lot since they love playing so much. I’m just glad that while they do have a game in front of them, it’s not teaching something bad or nothing at all, it’s teaching them basic reading skills that will have them achieve their goals in reading. Thanks Leapfrog! You’ve done it again! 🙂
Disclosure: I received a Leapster Explorer Tangled Game for my review. This did not influence my post and as always my words are my own!
