As part of his birthday and Christmas presents, Little Yum-Yum received a few ‘games’ for his InnoTab Max. However, these are educational, but encourages fun learning. The power Rangers characters/theme has been used for maths, Spider-Man for science, and DC Super Friends for Language Arts.

He hasn’t caught on yet. All he sees are superheros.

Say, What?

Brazilian and Portuguese pupils are the majority in Little Yum-Yum’s school.

The other day, Max and I were home, when he switched languages. I thought “Nice try, son. I speak Spanish too”. (I’ve been learning almost every day for the past sixteen months). However, I couldn’t understand what he was saying.

Me: What are you saying, Bubba?

Max: (Continues to speak in the language, whilst smiling at me).

Me: I don’t understand

Max: It’s Portuguese, mummy!

I wrote down a few of the sentences as best as I could, and translated them via Google Translate.

Yep, he sure was speaking Portuguese! Some of is friends have been teaching him their language, which I think is amazing!

Fortunately for him, I don’t have the time to learn another language.

InnoTab Max

I bought Little Yum-Yum an InnoTab Max a little while ago. I had forgotten about it until recently when I (re)discovered it.

A fun way to learn, he uses his ‘tablet’ (as he calls it) for various activities. On this occasion, he was using it to help with sums. The characters Cody and Cora are at the beach, when each sees a different number of crabs, sea turtles, shells and so forth. Once each group has been counted, Maximus must then add the two amounts together, then select the right total from the multiple choice option.

He got all the sums right by using his fingers to count.

Maximus now uses his ‘tablet’ everyday, completing activities without me having to tell him to do so. An ingenious device!

The Results Are In

Max’s preschool results! That’s my boy. He’s 56 months, so he’s done extremely well.

We’re working on Listening and Attention, Managing Feelings and Behaviour and Writing. With the first two, Max just wants to play. But what he doesn’t understand, is that things are going to be very different when he starts school; there’ll be less play time! I feel sorry for him and the other children making this transition. However, it must be done. I’m sure he will adapt… well, I hope!

By the way, if anyone knows of a really good Spanish teacher (needed at least twice a week), please let me know. Max is fluent in the language, so why not let him keep it up? Thanks!
