I found this and bookmarked it before Christmas. I think I even twittered about it, on Twitter. My memory was jogged when I heard about it again on the [tag]Jumping Monkeys [/tag]podcast when they interviewed one of the co-owners in January.
Well with a birthday coming up in February it was the perfect time to try it. Here’s what we found.
[tag]Tessy & Tab reading club[/tag]. We signed up last week, end of February, and unlike most subscriptions that can take 3 months or more to start we received ours in less than a week.
In the issue we received there was a booklet with a story called “Play in Puddles”
Section on vocabulary “P” and number “8”.
We had to look through the story to find 4 objects and what I really like that stretched my little guy was he had to also find two words. He’s used to looking through’ I Spy Treasure Hunt (I Spy (Scholastic Hardcover)to find objects so it was good he had to focus on the letters of the word and the whole word and find it in the story. Something I don’t think we’ve ever done together.
The last page has a part for colouring.
I hope you’ll check it out.
Tessy & Tab reading club is recommended for ages 2-6. It comes in the mail- our was addressed to my son so he’s happy to be getting mail and it’s not his birthday twice a month!
It’s recommended in the February 2008 Parenting Magazine and I can see why.
The magazine comes with a parent’s magazine that will follow-low stock. I’m looking forward to reading more about reading.
