English for preschoolers, or interactive toy Magic Box

Magic Box – something in between a simple tutorial for the smallest and interactive game for the Ipad with elements of augmented reality.

The idea was, as can be seen in the photo, completely borrowed from the project OSMO and in the best Chinese traditions is cut at a price of half. Now the Magic Box is inferior in terms of the number of interactive features, and one of its main purposes is to help in mastering English letters and words.

How it works

And a Magic Box set. On the Ipad you need to download the application, and from the main box to get a stand and a mirror.

The assembled design will look like this:

Next, you need to run the application, select the level and – start " Guess "the correct letters. For better discrimination it is recommended to put a blank sheet in front of Ipad – it's something like a playing field.

The total game consists of 11 levels. The first 4 is the alphabet: in the course of the lesson, the voice will dictate letters, they will need to be found in the set and put on a sheet.

After the correct answer, go to the next. Beginning at Level 5, the application will suggest inserting missed letters into words from common categories: family, animals, body parts, transport, etc.

Despite the fact that the pictures are obvious , All the same the presence of parents is necessary. For example, the child himself learns the pear and without effort, but Uncle, or Uncle, may require explanations, since the Russian translation does not give the application.

Games with words already on time: each small lesson includes several (8/11/13) word-exercises for substitution, the number of which is indicated in a corner, in an orange square.

In one level, the words are intermixed, that is, returning to the same level, the child will not lose some intrigue.

A toy was first sent to remembering the words not grammar. This is obvious when you pay attention to which letters are missed: it is almost impossible to make a mistake. The main thing is to hear right, to quickly find and substitute the right one.

However, despite the simplicity, the prompt mode still exists: it is activated by clicking on the "light bulb" in the corner of the display.

The words in English are repeated twice

The game with the numbers

Talking about the fact that the main purpose of toys – Training in an interactive form of English words and letters, it was not meant that the appointment is the only one. To date, the Magic Box consists of two parts: the second is a game with numbers for which you need to download your application.

This game also consists of two parts, and both of them They are eager to teach a simple account in a game form. The figures are represented as dots and in the form of digits directly:

And the application is also "divided" into two parts, although the game for both parts is one. The plot line is quite simple: you need to "kill" the dropped numbers and release the "passage" of the fish in the ball.

In the first part of the game it is necessary to throw out "number-points", in the second – Arab. With each level, the process becomes more complicated, the numbers will have to be added, for example, to "kill" 18 it will be necessary to produce a simple, but still calculation.

How it is sold

In the Magic Box box there are three boxes: in one of them a stand with a mirror for the Ipad, in the other two a set of letters and numbers.

Packed everything is very decent and nice. For the squares are provided their own individual cells.

Each box closes like a book, but inside the squares can slightly shake.

However, the set does not lose its appearance, but due to the fact that three boxes are in the hands at once, it looks even rich in some sense. Such sets as methodical interactive manuals could well be appropriate in preschool institutions.
