Kids love electronics, it’s a fact of life. Instead of letting them use your expensive adult tablet, how about nabbing them a Nabi Jr?
There’s a lot of talk these days about making learning fun, so that kids actually want to participate. The world around us is changing so quickly, when I was in Kindergarten in the mid-1980s the most academic thing that we did was learn our numbers and colors. However, now with a child in Kindergarten myself I see that there are clear, very specific core fundamentals a child must master in order to succeed in Kindergarten. The kids need to grasp these reading, writing and math concepts before entering elementary school. My son was really struggling last year, so much that he had to repeat Kindergarten this year, and I believe that it was because he didn’t learn these core skills in Preschool that he really needed for Kindergarten.
Luckily, the Nabi Jr. tablet that I want to talk about today was designed as a tool, not as a toy. Nabi Jr. is powered by a dual-core processor, including 4GB storage, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and rotating front and back camera. The operating system is Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich, which is really easy to use. The Nabi Jr. also comes pre-loaded with Wings First Steps, which are age-appropriate lessons that help your child master skill sets and build core fundamentals in math, reading and writing. Parents can check progress with N-Site, a program that allows parents to monitor time spent, skill gains and also to identify trouble spots. Do you have a kid who is reluctant to help around the house? Even the most stubborn kids can learn to be responsible and make good choices with Nabi Coins, Chore List and Treasure Box.
In case you’re curious what Nabi Coins are, Nabi Coins is a parent-managed virtual currency that teaches children how to save, earn and spend money. Nabi Coins can be earned when your child completes lessons in the Wings Learning System or finishes their chores in the Chore List program. Your child can use their Nabi Coins to buy stuff in Treasure Box. Pretty cool, right? The Treasure Box is basically an app store where kids can use their hard earned Nabi Coins to purchase new music, movies, games, and more.
