Even though my boys are in/near the full Algebra Stage, I was interested to see the Carlito C. Caterpillar’s Math House Games to share with my readers of younger children. The idea of it, each card has a game, which may be easily played, with your toddler or young one. It has quite a bit of information about MOPS, how to join, how to support, how they started. It is meant as a tool to help Mom’s of Preschoolers.
The website does not show any of the steps, or any of the games. They say an iPad App is coming – but hasn’t been released yet. Based on their Copy write Page, as the first Page – directed to Copy write Pirates – I can’t really share the exact games, and since they didn’t share the pages, I will not photograph them for you.
What I liked, is that it gives you 20 activities to interact with your child – with a purpose of learning involved. What I didn’t like – is that many of these activities may come naturally, or at a later date. I liked how they used every day objects for Math Object Lessons of sorts, I didn’t like the way they scripted out the parent’s dialog. Anyone with me with the dialog from Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons? Sigh. But- I like that, I remember when I started, I really needed someone to teach me how to bring learning into the every day activity, with just a little planning – or the knowledge in my bank – when an opportunity arose.
Over all – for a review – I’ve never given the price a big concern. You know what your budget is. I say – This is advertised at $23.95, including Shipping and Handling, and allow you to decide if this is expensive or not. I’ve gotta say – I’ve never, so far, spent almost $25.00 on a full year of math curriculum. If you have personal questions, please comment or email me – this review does not come with my blanket approval and my urge to rush out and order this product. But – if you are a preschool mom, who really needs some helps with math language – this might be the easiest 20 step plan for you.
