Our 4-year-old son is heading to kindergarten in the fall, and he is ready for this new adventure. He has been attending the free VPK preschool program here in Florida for the past year, where they’ve been teaching him the letters, sounds and numbers. At home we’ve gone a step further, since this little guy is a sponge, when it comes to learning and he has quite a memory. Over the summer, I wanted to take it a step further to make sure that learning new words is fun. This is why we we’ve enlisted Learning Journey to help us in our efforts to make learning fun this summer. After great experience with the Learning Journey Alphabet Game, we decided to give Learning Journey’s First Words Memory Game a try.
Learning Journey’s First Words Memory Game is simply a memory game, where kids have to connect words with images. The words consist of basic words such as dog, moon, train, truck, doll etc. It is not the basic kindergarten sight words, which is a good thing at our house, because our little guy already knows his kindergarten sight words, and I wanted it to be more of a challenge to him.
Our son only knew a few of the words such as dog, bat and car, but most of the words he did not know, when we started the first round of the First Words Memory Game. However, by the end of the game, he had picked up at least a dozen words by sounding them out and memorizing them.
Let me emphasize that he has a great memory, but still… He beat me! First time playing the game, and he beat me without any help from me. I was surprised to see, how quickly he caught on to the words, but it definitely proves to me that having fun makes learning a lot easier.
We give the First Words Memory Game from Learning Journey 5 stars!
