All month long my little guy and I have been talking about how things will change next year. He’s going to Kindergarten and it’s such a bitter sweet moment. I say that, not because he’s my last child to leave for an Elementary journey, but because he’s the child that I kept home the longest. My other two children attended Mother’s Day Out and Preschool programs. In the blink of an eye, they were gone. With my youngest, I realized these child years go by so quickly and I didn’t want to rush him off to school and out of the house.
I was worried he wouldn’t get the “social interaction” every Mom talks about, but it’s been such a rewarding five years with him. We’ve been practicing our reading and writing together using a variety of tools, but one, in particular, has been very successful. The Leapfrog TAG Reading System has been so helpful, especially when I can’t sit down with him due to work. What’s your favorite reading tool for kids?
More than 15 years ago LeapFrog began building its legacy: helping children learn to read. So we’re celebrating this reading month with Tag, the #1 selling reading system.* It helps children learn to read by bringing words and pictures to life. That’s why 99% of teachers recommend Tag!** And the Tag library of 60+ interactive books, maps and more helps build the fundamentals for school success.
We have been HUGE TAG fans since the very beginning. The year it first debuted on store shelves, I just KNEW I had to have it… err… I mean, my daughter HAD to have it. She was a preschooler then and the decision was a little confusing. Back then there were two other “reading systems”. I can’t even remember the name of the first one. Poingo? The other was a reading system by VTech. I know. I know. All brands are different and, although I love me some VTech, the reading pens just didn’t compare to our beloved TAG.My daughter, to this day, uses her reading pen, especially since we discovered the Leapfrog TAG Maps.
Today you’ll find TAG is STILL highly purchased (according to my friends) and recommended. The system has been improved with a bigger memory, colors, and TAG accessories. Need I say more?
Do you have a Leapfrog TAG System? If so, what’s your child’s favorite TAG book (or map)?
