With school just getting out about a week ago, the last thing you probably want to think about is getting ready for the new school year. But if you have a child preparing for preschool, giving them a head start this summer is important. It will help to build their confidence and self esteem. A great way to help your preschooler develop their math skills, is with the exciting new Team Umizoomi Math Kit. This kit teaches important math skills like sorting, classification, and reason using some of your child's favorite superhero characters.
The Team Umizoomi Math Kits include:
- 48-page workbook that amplifies the curriculum covered in each episode, setting up problems and providing opportunities for practice and repetition
- 24-page storybook that invites kids to join Team Umizoomi on a math adventure
- 24 Mighty Math Mission Cards – portable cards that provide math-based challenges for kids
- 48-page activity book that reinforces math skills through simple games and activities
- Team Umizoomi episode on DVD
We were lucky enough to receive a copy of the new Math Kit to review, and my kids have really been enjoying it. The work books and storybooks include fun activities that feel more like games than math exercises. The pages of the books and cards are brightly illustrated, and the instructions are easy for parents to follow so they can assist their children. Not only is this kit an excellent way to give your child a head start, its a fun way to spend time with them. When you're all done with the books for the day, its a nice bonus to be able to sit down and watch the included DVD to unwind.
If you are interested in getting a Team Umizoomi Math Kit for your own child, it will be available in retailers nationwide including Babies R Us and Toys R Us starting July 1, 2011 for the low price of only $19.99. You can also find them online at the Umizoomi Shop. It would make a great gift for any kids out there with summer birthdays or the perfect activity to keeps minds engaged on rainy days when you can't go outside.
