ChildUp Early Learning Game Cards

I was given the opportunity to review ChildUp Early Learning Game Cards that would help my boys learn to count, add, subtract, sort, compare, categorize, and differentiate between odd and even numbers in a matter of months. My boys are ages 5 and 2. Counting is something they both pretty much have covered. But all of those other skills could be obtained from one pack of cards? How could I possibly say no to that?

The ChildUp game cards come with parent cards that teach you how to use these cards. There is so much information provided on the background of this system and benefits of using it, you'll feel like you took a class to learn how to teach using these tools. You're also provided with tips on how to teach counting in your everyday life - simple things like counting glasses on the table or apples in your shopping cart.

The cards themselves are colorful and have great pictures of animals on them. Each pack contains 4 color-specific series of 10 different animals, e.g. birds, African mammals, aquatic animals, and domestic animals. The children begin to identify a specific animal with the number on the reverse side of the card. This is a great tool for developing memory skills. They also become well-versed in animals, the sounds they make and where they live. Not only are they learning how to count, they're learning to distinguish between colors and developing their language and vocabulary as well.

If you're someone who wants to play with your children while getting them ready for school at the same time, I would recommend the ChildUp Early Learning Game Cards. They are great for children ages 1 to 5 and come in the Count to 10 or Count to 20 options. There's even an App available for those of you who want to take it with you on the go. There are so many benefits to be obtained, you really have nothing to lose.
