REVIEW: ChildUp Early Learning Game Cards Series

Spread the love

ChildUp Early Learning Game Cards are interactive and educational cards for parents to work with their children from 1 to 5 years old.

“The ChildUp Cards are NOT Flash Cards
Under the assumption that babies and toddlers would be able to memorize whole words or series of dots, some people believe that flash cards are a good way to teach reading or counting. This method is flawed because, even if it allows children to recognize known words, it leaves them unable to read or build new words. With numbers, while it is not so difficult to instantly recognize six dots on the face of a die, how would you “read” 25 dots without counting each of them individually? In fact, children who read flash cards are not ‘reading’ or ‘counting’ at all, but only ‘recognizing pictures.’”

There are two sets of cards:

  • Teach Your Child to Count to 10 – Math and Logic #1
  • Teach Your Child to Count to 20 – Math and Logic #2

Besides learning to count, your child can also learn the difference between even and odd numbers and to do basic additions and subtractions. He or she will also animal vocabulary and language skills.

ChildUp Early Learning CardsEach set of cards has animals on it (40 for each set) and the cards are separated into sections with a card at the beginning explaining what each animal is.

ChildUp has also created Early Learning Mobile Apps for iOS and Android and also offers a series of Online Parenting Courses about early academic learning and emotional and social development.

The packs are only $12 and come in a cute little box for safe keeping. Each one comes with 16 parent cards which has valuable information on how children learn and how to use the cards.  If you want to know how to use the cards BEFORE you buy them, there is a link on the main page to a pdf.

There are also all kinds of parenting articles.
