Our kids love to use the computer. I don’t mind them spending a little screen time, but I like to make sure they are still being productive and learning. Educational Software that helps them with Math and Reading are my favorite. We have tried a few different programs, and our kids usually grow board, never feeling there is enough interaction. Until they tried the Lakeshore Learning Software.
Lakeshore Learning has been in business for over 58 years. They are dedicated to creating innovative educational materials that spark young imaginations, install a sense of wonder and foster a lifelong love of learning. That is exactly what I hope for our children. They have materials for infants and toddlers, through the 6th grade. Their materials appeal to children of all interests, backgrounds and abilities. They also have great resources for Teachers.
The favorite around our house right now is the Beginnings Operations Adventures. Filled with addition and subtraction exercises, our 6 year old asks to play the interactive games every day. She loves opening the Lemonade Stand, eating cookies, picking apples, and working at the burger drive-thru. I have seen her math skills improve and there is no complaining when I ask her to do her math homework for school.
Since playing the interactive math games she is incorporating her new love of Math into other areas of life. Yesterday when I was making cookies, she asked if she could practice her subtraction like on her computer game. I would bake the cookies and then she would pretend to eat them and tell me how many were left. She has never been so excited about math.
The Lakeshore Learning programs have great graphics, and unlike other programs we have tried, the dialogue is clear and easy for children to understand. There are simple movements on the screen so kids aren’t sidetracked or overwhelmed. You can shop by age/grade, or by category, which makes it really easy to find age appropriate software.
The programs are easy to install, and make learning fun. Not only have I recommended them to other mom’s, but we plan on purchasing a few other programs for our 4th grader.
Lakeshore Learning has much more than just educational software. They are a one stop shop for everything from classroom furniture, activity walls, arts and crafts resources, and helps with music, science and social studies. Perfect for your home or classroom.
