I recently purchased a leapster for my 4 year old son at home. Suddenly, he is counting everything in sight, pointing out shapes, and attempting to sound out words. I have always tried to create teachable moments with him, but suddenly he is finding wonderful teachable moments on his own! I think these Leapsters would be a wonderful tool in the classroom also. I am asking for a leapster center for my kindergarten class. This center would allow for independent practice for my students in several areas of the curriculum. Some of the games are more challenging than others, allowing my faster learners to move forward while the others practice the current topics of study. This proposal includes 5 leapsters with headphones, 7 cartridges, and ac adapters. I thought this would be a wonderful start on a center that I could continue to grow.
