Preparing for the First Day of Kindergarten with Tag from LeapFrog

Kindergarten is Just Around the Corner
~ We are Tuning Up Our Skills Before the Big Day ~
As you read in one of my recent posts, I talked about how my baby will be going to kindergarten. I will now only have big kids in the house, ages 5 and 8. My son is nervous and excited all at once. He did attend preschool for two years, so he is used to going to school ~ but now he’ll be at the BIG school. 
As a former teacher of eight years, I know it’s important to keep up your kids’ skills up over the summer months. I know the summer slide theories are true, but I also know kids need a break and to get outside as well. That’s why I like to find fun things for my kids to do to slip in some educational lessons without them knowing it. 
Tag ~ Get Ready for Kindergarten is one of those things! The Tag by LeapFrog is an awesome tool for kids to use to practice their skills. It’s fun and interactive! The kids can practice it on their own or together with you. Drew and I like to play with it together. He loves all the different lessons in the book and loves to show me when he gets something right. It’s so cute!

The things we love about the Get Ready for Kindergarten are the variety of skills to practice. Some of these include: phonics skills, math skills, using calendars, vowel sounds, dinosaur facts, syllables, rhyming, and more. Just name it and the kids can learn it in this book! These are many of the topics kids will be introduced to when kindergarten starts, so it’s nice to give them that added confidence that they know something before school starts. If school has started for you, then it’s still not too late. This book will reinforce what will be taught, and getting kids to practice at home willingly is half the battle. Remember, when kids are having fun they don’t even realize they are learning. WIN for the kids and WIN for mom and dad!

Drew also likes the Tag because it play music, encourages him when he gets answers correct, and he can even plug his headphones into it if he wants to.

  1. We love our leapfrog and have been using is all summer – our son enters 1st grade this year.

  2. That looks really cute. I find it SO hard to get kids to want to do school work in the summer, but it has to be done!

  3. We love our Tag System! It is fantastic!

  4. Love LeapFrog products! Looks like your son had a blast with it :) Great way to keep kids engaged in education during the summertime.

  5. I love LeapFrog products. We have the Leapster Explorer. We haven’t tried the Tag yet, but I really want to! What a good price!

  6. That looks so much fun! We love LeapFrog! Great photos too.

  7. It’s hard to let them go…but we have to. I want to get this book for Brody in about 2 more years. He’s not even 3 yet.

  8. I have thought about getting these for my 5 year old daughter, but my mother informed me of the fact that my brother and I both had something very similar when we were kids, and it didn’t help us one bit when it came to learning to read. I think I may get one for her anyway, since it’s encouraging and sounds more advanced than something I would have had 15-20 years ago. Thanks for the great review.

  9. I really want to get Jude a Tag system! Probably for Christmas this year!! Thanks for sharing

  10. I like that it covers so many area. Next year is the big K for us…I’m a little nervous about her being prepared.

  11. We love LeapFrog here! It’s great that you can give your kids products that are not only fun but educational. Good luck to your son on his first day of BIG school! :)

  12. Tag is great! My daughter has one and loves it. I will have to get her this book. She has another year before she starts Kindergarten but she is my little book worm.
