This is a repost, but there is a giveaway this time!
Ever notice how kids frequently end up in the same (or close to) professions as their parents? Lawyers kids end up as lawyers, doctors have doctors, business persons have kids that end up in business. I’m not sure why this happens, but it probably has something to do with kids seeing their parents success (or the parents encouraging their kids to take the same route that they did). Either way, I’m sure you can all agree that this happens frequently.
I work in finance (my dad was a business man). I always loved math while in school, whether it was simple addition or stats classes, I always enjoyed math and did well at it, so really it’s not surprising that I ended up in finance rather than an English teacher.
LeapFrog: Math Adventure to the Moon, which was out on DVD February 23rd, is helping young mathematicians get a jump start on their math skills.
Here is a synopsis of the educational movie:
Join Tad and Lily as they blast off on an exciting educational adventure! Tad and Lily need the perfect collection of things to take to school for their math assignment. When they finally decide on moon rocks, there’s just one problem—how will they get them? With some magical help from their firefly friend Edison, they board a rocket ship to start their quest. Soon the twins learn that math is everywhere, even in outer space! Watch as they use their skills in counting, sorting, skip counting and recognizing patterns to overcome obstacles, find new friends and make the trip back to Earth!
LeapFrog is one of the best selling and most recommended educational brands by Moms (and us Moms know what we are talking about – right? ) My daughter will be watching LeapFrog: Math Adventure to the Moon regularly to give her a jump start in math. My husband wasn’t as strong in math as I was, so it will be interesting to see who’s genes she received. Whether she ends up in computers, business, or as an English teacher, it doesn’t really matter as long as she is happy. I may as well get her started early with Math, and Thanks so LeapFrog: Math Adventures to the Moon, we can learn together.
