Mister Man and Sunshine each day are working to earn electronics time while I cook dinner. While I am not a fan of the way electronics have taken over our society, I do love that they can be learning and not even realize they’re doing it! This is very true with our newest app addition, Orphs of the Woodlands at Tangletree by Star Toaster.
As they read through the chapters, they have many opportunities to interact with the story.
The great thing about the tasks is that they are woven into the story line so the kids are taking an invested interest in the characters and story while learning about grammar, math, life skills, and more!
My kids really enjoyed playing the Orphs of the Woodlands at Tangletree. They had fun reading the story and were really excited to see the tasks light up as they became available. It was instant gratification and a fun incentive to read the next chapter.
They especially loved doing the tasks and knowing they were helping the story and the characters within the story. This was a fun way for them to be a part of the action and use their imagination.
Orphs of the Woodlands at Tangletree is intended to be a way to ease children into reading chapter books. The fun break in the reading makes the transition fun and all the while keeping them interested along the way. I can definitely see how this would be a good way to make the transition not quite as scary. Being a fun easy to read story helps as well as the tasks. The tasks teach them things that will help them better understand what they are reading and life in general.
While both of my kids are already reading chapter books, Orphs of the Woodlands at Tangletree was a fun way to add in a bit more reading and educational entertainment.
We have a very limited amount of time for screen time around our house. So this was a great addition to their options.
Orphs of the Woodlands at Tangletree is available on i-tunes and was a quick easy download. One of the great things about the Orphs of the Woodlands at Tangletree app is the ability to add multiple children. This was a definite plus in our household. Each child has their own profile which keeps them in their spot throughout, making it more fun for each of them.
Because we only have one i-phone with the app installed, the login helps to keep the kids game separated. Which keeps them from having to try and find where they were before they were done their previous turn. This has saved both time and the potential for arguments.
It is also very easy to check out your child’s progress and see what types of things he has been working most on in the tasks area.
