Learning Through Play
If you recall back to our very first post, we wanted our PlayPods to be ‘secretly educational.’ We wanted there to be an educational component to each PlayPod, but we hoped for the learning to happen through play. Our PlayPods have children following recipe cards and making cookies to learn their colors and shapes, placing colorful pom poms on activity cards to learn letter sound and formation and putting gems into treasure chests to learn division. Our newest PlayPod, Sum Sparkles, introduces mathematical concepts in a playful way, to keep kids wanting more.
Dinosaurs, princess crowns, aliens and more, they won’t even realize they are learning new math strategies and expanding their math vocabulary. We can keep that part our little secret.
