The most important thing about this is it teaches them to draw their letters CORRRECTLY. Start at the top and go down...etc. All educational experts Iv'e talked with say that it is essential to get then doing it right. PLUS, unlike the letter factory (which I loved) it also teaches lowercase letters which I have come to find out that those are what they need in Pre-K and K.
Thank you Leapfrog for encouraging my son to enthusiastically learn and challenge himself.
**What You Get**
There are two games on the cartridge. The letter hunting and writing game, and another bonus game which is only available when the LMAX is hooked up to the television.
Bonus Game -- In the bonus game, Professor Quigley puts on a robotized suit and shoots through a vertical maze. You are told to gather either capital or lower case letters. It's fun but requires quick decision making.
Letter Learning Game -- This game teaches uppercase and lowercase letters, their sounds, and it allows children to practice their letter writing.
Note: Others have commented on how `perfect' you have to write the letters and how annoying this requirement is-well LEAPFROG must have heard them because we have not found this to be the case. My daughter's handwriting is anything but perfect (though it's improving) and the LMAX accepted any `decent' attempt of hers to follow the dotted lines.
Plus, and I would never tell this to my kindergartener, you can actually practice writing using your finger on the writing screen. Now I don't want her doing that, but it *is* great practice for my younger preschooler son. [In fact, this is something that is used by some teach-at-home writing systems that have young children use sand to practice.]
--The letter writing portion of these games is just awesome. My daughter now loves to practice her letters (had to drag her screaming to a piece of paper-LOL), and likes adding them to her book of letters.Read more ›
My son is entranced by the games. I have to say this one is his favorite!!! He loves the letter hunting and writing game. Even though he learned his letters and how to spell and write his letters early, this still helps him get BETTER at it.
He also likes the bonus game on the TV. Professor Quigley puts on a robotized suit and shoots through a vertical maze. You are told to gather either capital or lower case letters. It's fun but requires quick decision making. At first he wasn't too quick but now he zooms through it!!
The Letter Learning Game teaches uppercase and lowercase letters, their sounds, and it allows children to practice their letter writing. What's great is the catchy tunes. My son sings A says aaaa, B says bbbb...which has helped him join letters together to spell words. I must admit, it drives me nuts at times but he's so proud of himself that he knows this.
My son does get frustrated while tracing the letters and numbers. If it is not within the perfected lines, it makes you do it all over again. I know it forces the child to be more precise, so it's not really a complaint. His handwriting has improved somewhat.
The only thing that we are not crazy about and doesn't make sense is that when the LMAX is connected to the TV you have to use the button on the pen to make the pen work. Without the TV you just have to touch the pen to the screen to enter a choice. My almost 4 year old son had difficulty at first but now he has the concept.
I would suggest you adding this to your Leapster Library...it is a great educational toy. My son loves it, what else can I say!!!
