Learning Not Limited to Classrooms

As summer winds down, and the buzz in the air shifts from

cicadas to grumbles about school, there are a few things

to help get kids ready. Fun and games don’t have to end because

school is around the bend.

check out the Tech Too Alphabet Tablet by Kidz delight.

With games that teach numbers, shapes, colors, animals and

more, the tablet can help kids brush up on focus and fundamental

learning as they journey to school for the first time.

Pick up a game of Bananagrams – a fun letter tiles game

packed in a banana that is perfect to help young kids identify

their names so they can find them on their lockers the first day

of school. older kids can create individual crosswords to prepare

and get a leg up for spelling class. Jumbo Bananagrams

has the same game play, but is larger with rubber tiles. it’s great

to play outside so you can soak up the last bit of summer sun

while gaining the rays of learning. Plus, sunlight helps kids sleep

better and boosts their immune system – both good benefits

for back to school!
