My kiddos and I are always looking for fun ways to learn. Games, books, puzzles, and educational programs are all a part of a normal day around here. So, when I was asked to try out the new SmartyAnts program – an online world created by the founder of LeapFrog, featuring interactive videos, stories and personalized songs – I jumped on the opportunity.
Ben and I have enjoyed exploring exciting game play in this colorful 3-D world. SmartyAnts has thrown us into an incredible learning environment that’s also endlessly entertaining. Ben was able to name his three virtual best smarty ant friends and was eager to dub them Noah, Josh & Julia! He is excited to interact with them all as he continues to learn and explore.
As part of the program we were also sent a Phonics Reading Pup that we named Gizmo. The Pup is the cuddly part of the SmartyAnts world of learning and reading. A Phonics Reading Pup is a cute and cuddly plush toy that interacts with the SmartyAnts online website. In addition, Gizmo allows Ben to continue to learn wherever he goes. He can listen to songs and stories any time of the day, even if Mommy won’t give up her computer!
Ben and I will be continuing to explore and learn with SmartyAnts over the next couple of weeks and can’t wait to share with you our final assessment. But, in the meantime, we’d like to offer YOU a chance to win a one year subscription to Smarty Ants, as well as a Phonics Reading Pup, for the early reader in your life! Just leave me a comment here, before 9pm on November 22nd, telling me about the fun ways you and your kiddos have discovered learning how to read.
Disclosure: I received a Phonics Reading Pup and a one-year subscription to SmartyAnts.com to review for this post.
