Today I would like to introduce you to PandaParents and their MESSYLEARNING FOR PRESCHOOLERS AND KINDERGARTNERS. Thomas (6 years old) had the opportunity to use this for this review. I was a little worried about the title, but it wasn’t messy at all.
- M- Mixed subjects and activites for integrative learning
- E- Engagning activities that challenge minds
- S- Simple 1, 2, 3 steps: Read, Learn, Create
- S- Smart designs for creative learning
- Y- Yeah, a new way to promote preschool STEM and early brain growth
This is a cute curriculum for little ones. Each month has a different story. We chose to focus on Scotty the Skunk for this review, but we also received Mommy’s Baby and A Jolly Jingling Journey.
The first thing Thomas and I did was watch the Scotty the Skunk video. This is a cute cartoon story about a skunk, where he hides, what he does and the letter S.
Big sister Evie (7) watched it too. She liked it!
At the time of this review all the parts of this curriculum are digital (print version coming soon) so I printed the workbook here at home. Thomas worked through many of the pages. You can tell it finally warmed up here, this boy sheds that shirt a lot more often now!
We also read the corresponding book. We used it to review this unit.
Thomas is a very active 6 year old boy. The video did capture his attention and he liked it. He sat for the whole thing, it was about 30 minutes. Thomas did like the worksheets. He did spend more time on some and skipped over some others. He enjoyed the cut and paste ones and the mazes.
This was a fun and cute curriculum that covered many subjects in book form, video and worksheets. This multi-sensory, multi- subject curriculum appeals to many different learning styles and includes some math, foreign languages, reading, independent thinking, geography, biology, fine motor skills and more.
I don’t know about your young learners, but mine get bored very easily. This program is designed to be used for about 30 minutes, 2 to 3 times per week. I liked how many subjects were introduced in a lesson. I like that we worked on it slowly over a month and I liked that they get do work on an entirely different story the next month.
Here’s a little about the other 2 stories we received. Mommy’s baby is about a mama panda talking to her baby. She asks her baby if she’s all of these different animals and shapes. The baby sweetly responds that yes, she is. “Are you mommy’s little monkey?”, “Yes, I am and you are mommy monkey!” A Jolly Jingling Journey is about a journey to meet Santa at Christmas. Davy and his friends get to help Santa deliver Christmas gifts.
