At this point, at the tail end of summer, going back to school is definitely on the minds of all those school-age kids and parents..
This Fall, in just a few short weeks, I will be starting Cohen in some Preschool/reading activities at home! We are very excited to begin this new adventure in our family and Cohen is just as thrilled as I am to start! I am beginning now to collect items that we will use this year and for years to come.. Educational Insights is the perfect place to stock up on all types of fun learning tools for parents as well as teachers!
GeoSafari is just one of the many, many brands of educational toys Educational Insights carries. I received the amazing GeoSafari Jr. Talking Globe Jr. for the boys and we all love it!
The EI website says it is good for kids 6-8 years of age but both of my boys, 2.5 years and almost 4 years, play with it right now and it is already teaching them about the oceans, continents, animals, US states, continents and more! I love products that my kids can grow in to.. I know that this will be one of my homeschooling teaching tools in the years to come. The GeoSafari Jr. Talking Globe Jr. is fairly expensive (for me, anyway) at $119 but the good thing is that it will last your little one for years and through many different learning stages.
We were also sent a set of the Hot Dots Jr. Patterns & Sequencing cards as well as the ‘ACE’ Talking Dog Pen. We already have one of the pens but it is wonderful to now have two, one for each boy! And the cards are very appropriate to Cohen’s learning right now. Some of the cards, he knows right away and others he has to ask for help on.. But I enjoy sitting with him and talking through the ones he struggles with. I love seeing the light switch on when he finally understands what I’m saying! The ‘ACE’ pen is adorable and interacts with the child; barking, talking, lighting up and vibrating for right and wrong answers.
The HotDots collection carries a variety of different card sets for various ages, stages and subjects! With the card sets and pens being sold separately, it is a great opportunity to mix and match the sets that your child needs or wants. And for the amazing prices, you can afford to get several different boxes to specifically interest your child. HotDots also has a pen and card sets for the older kids as well!
Educational Insights is the #1 place to do your fun back-to-school shopping, either for your own children or students in your class! I love that the website is so easily laid out and you can search for just the right topic of items that suit your needs. The prices are wonderful as well. You absolutely cannot go wrong when shopping at Educational Insights this Fall (or anytime for that matter)!
