PandaParents Preschool - Review

My younger daughters always like to imitate their older siblings in doing school work. I know when my older 4 children were younger, I had to piece together a lot of their school work in the early years. That takes a lot of time and work. Recently, we had the chance to review MESSYLEARNING FOR PRESCHOOLERS AND KINDERGARTNERS from PandaParents

This is a new program that will be coming out towards the end of this year. It is geared towards 3-6 year olds and is so far just a digital product. They hope to have it released in print by the end of this year. MESSY doesn't stand for actual mess but the acronym means:
M-Mixed subjects and activities for integrated learning
E- Engaging  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 program is available on a monthly basis and each month offers new curriculum. Each month includes online videos, PDF files and PDF workbook activities. We received:
  • A Jolly Jingling Journey
  • Mommy Baby 
  • Scotty Skunk Hears a Scary Sound

Each of these had a video, a storybook and a workbook. We mainly worked with A Jolly Jingling Journey. There are 2 videos to watch that highlights the letter J with cute graphics. The books are short and with the colorful graphics, they keep your child's attention. The workbooks that accompany each book tie into the stories and video to help reinforce what they learned in the book. The workbook for this book was 40 pages long with many activities to complete.

Throughout this program, children learn letters, words, math, science and even do art projects. They also play hidden subject games, while working on building memory skills and comprehension. There are worksheets you can print out that help your child also practice their handwriting, basic spelling as well as coloring activities. There are also printables that if you printed them out on sticker paper, you could use as stickers!

If your child is not yet reading, you will need to sit with them while working on the workbook in order to read directions to them. Though you could let them watch the video and book alone. The idea is to work on this program 2-3 times a week, spending 15-30 minutes. A lot of these concepts my 4 & 6 year already know so we kept our sessions to about 15 minutes as it was more about reinforcing concepts they have previously learned. They enjoyed the coloring pages.

While the online book & videos are great, we would definitely love the workbook in printed form and look forward to seeing them come out with that at the end of the year. This is a cute preschool program that is easy to implement with little work on the parents part which is something I always look for when it comes to curriculum.
