Show us how you’re having a Smart Summer!
The prize this week (Forest-Friendly Week) is from a great company in the education space, for which I’ve had the privilege of blogging for the last two years: LeapFrog.
I had highlighted posts from the previous week’s linky to but for clarity’s sake, I’ve moved the round-ups to their own posts:
We’d love for you to share your ideas–you can add a link to a post on your blog or even a photo set on Flickr or any types of publicly viewable “journal” entry on a social media or community site.
Not a blogger? If you do not have access to posting entries on any public site, you can also leave a comment on this post, sharing the learning opportunities you incorporated into your week with your children.
Your post (or comment) can be something from your archives that speaks to our theme for the week (Government) or it can just be a general post about how you are fitting fun learning into your summer activities. You can find our weekly themes on our calendar of ideas but ANY learning activities, big or small, are welcomed!
Just add your link(s) (as many relevant links as you would like) to a specific post or page (i.e. http://www.naturallyeducational.com/2011/06/fight-the-summer-slide-with-the-smart-summer-challenge/ NOT http://www.naturallyeducational.com) to the link widget below.
Every link you enter in the widget below (or your comment) during the week will also enter you to win our AWESOME prize of the week: a Prize Pack ($238 ARV) of LeapFrog Educational Games and Resources!
- 1 Leapster Explorer
- 2 Leapster Explorer games
- 1 Tag Reader
- 2 Tag Books
- Tag U.S. and World Maps
I allow very few electronic toys in my house but we have purchased several LeapFrog games and interactive books for our children, including the Tag Reader and books and the TAG US and World Maps. With LeapFrog, the technology moves beyond gimmickry to actually facilitating a child’s learning. The extremely well-designed devices encourage interactivity with text and knowledge.
The linky and giveaway closes at 11:59 PM EST on Thursday, July 28…and then we’ll see you back Friday morning for more fun! You may enter as many links as you wish and each will count as an entry. Comment entries are limited to one per person, per site (total of three (3) possible comment entries). US Shipping only for prizes, due to sponsor requests, but international friends are still encouraged to play and add their links! Winner will be chosen at random from valid entries.
You retain the rights to all entries but grant us permission to share your links along with a short excerpt and thumbnail image.
We reserve the right to disqualify entries at our sole discretion and change the rules or prizes without notification beyond updating the page.
