Each lesson from MESSYLEARNING FOR PRESCHOOLERS AND KINDERGARTNERS is set up to be a month long curriculum and full or original stories, learning activities, and creative projects. You start by reading the pdf story book to your child. We did this easily on Loulou’s tablet. We read Mommy’s Baby book which is perfect for practicing sight words. I noticed lots of sight word opportunities and many of the words she already knew such as are, you, I, and am. It’s a repetitive book that helps them be able to recognize those words by using them in a consistent fashion but also challenges them with a few changes to the format.
These activities help build memory skills and brain functions in an engaging way by having the child recall and retell the story. They will also learn reading and writing, sequencing, math skills, and patterns!
Then they can watch the fun video that goes with the book. This video has a funny voice when the child talks which was a little off putting to my older son who has sensory sensitivities but Loulou thought it was funny. The video reads the words and also has some animated components to keep the kids engaged and entertained. Although, we preferred to read together at our own pace and giving each other a part to read. We enjoy co-reading at night before bed time. Loulou loves books that she can read a good portion of and along with me.
Then comes the fun part. The workbooks I looked at were around 50 to 60 pages. They are full of a WIDE range of learning activities. I was surprised at just how much educational value they could fit into each book. We printed the workbooks out and Loulou was really excited to look through them. They have some great activities to do together with your child or for the child to work on as independent learning time. There are letter practice pages, sequencing, tracing, shapes, letter sounds, emotions, story building activities, and so much other fun things to do. The second book we looked at was Scotty Skunk Hears a Scary Sound. It focused on fun ways to learn the letters S.
I love their creative approach to learning!
Each book also has a creative project to complete at the end to tie it all together!
They have different stories available. We read three different ones. Mommy’s Baby, Scotty Skunk Hears a Scary Sound, and A Jolly Jingling Journey. Loulou’s favorite was Scotty Skunk Hears a Scary Sound. She has also been having a little difficulty with the letter S so I was happy for the extra practice for her. I don’t even know if she realized she was practicing her letter S because she was having fun working on the activities together with me. She also found the workbooks challenging enough to feel a sense of success at completion but easy enough to be able to complete them.
