Square Panda Review

 


Our son turned 3-years-old in April. Over the last couple of months, he has learned to spell his name and he is working on identifying letters. My personal goal is to have him be able to identify all 26 letters and spell basic words by next year. Wow! Pressures on little guy. Not really I’m just happy he’s learning. I came across a learning tool called Square Panda while on Facebook a few months ago. After doing some research I figured it would be the perfect tool to help meet our goal. 

The Amazing Square Panda tool

What’s better than a goofy chameleon with a love for dancing that introduces children to letter sounds and phonics in a fun, exploratory way. where any combination of letters (both nonsense words and real words) create a learning experience. Compatible with the Square Panda Playset, children are amused and engaged while using Square Panda smart letters to hear their chameleon friend sound out any letter or word, even silly words! As your child discovers real words, a picture of the word will appear and a celebratory funny dance will reinforce learning!

Why is Square Panda different?

Most phonics programs are presented in ways that children get tired of quickly. Many are tedious, pencil-paper driven, or versions of “drill and repeat.” The award-winning Square Panda introduces phonics skills in a high-interest, child-driven, engaging, and fresh way. My son loves this system. We practice our letter twice a day most days that is. He enjoys haveing iPad time with Square Panda and I am confident he is learning.
