ChildUp {Review and Giveaway} (CLOSED)

61 Flares 61 Flares ×

Both of my kids have showed a love of learning from very early on. My daughter excelled when we taught her sign language at 12 months old, and has continued to attack academics with the same excited intensity that she showed from an early age. My son is eager to learn and do as much as he can to keep up with his sister – who serves as a very happy teacher to him.

As soon as E began to show an understanding of numbers and counting, I knew that we should focus on expanding his knowledge. I have always been a fan of flashcards – I find them to be very helpful. I was really bummed that we couldn’t find the flashcards that we had used with V – they were bright, colorful and she always loved them.

I was searching everywhere for flashcards that I liked when I was contacted to review two sets of counting flashcards from ChildUp. We received Teach Your Child to Count to 10 and Teach Your Child to Count to 20.

The first thing that I noticed, and really liked, about these cards is that they feature my sons absolute favorite things – animals! The first few times that I took these cards out, all he wanted to do was look at the pictures and talk about the animals – what they were doing, where they live, their names. He had a blast!

We have since began using them to actually count. With help, he can put them in order (1 through 5) and he can count them fairly well on his own. We have not yet used the Count to Twenty set… I want to wait until he has really mastered zero through ten. Speaking of zero – this is one of the only flashcard sets that I have seen that includes zero in their cards. I liked this – and it gave us a unique opportunity to talk about a number that tends to be left out.

My daughter has taken it upon herself to help E with the flashcards. They play school – she is the teacher – and I can honestly say that he is learning!
