Matt and I considered homeschooling our daughter Joy since the day she was born. We wanted to have control over what she would learn and wanted her to have a more enriched learning experience. At first, we were a little bit apprehensive about moving forward with this idea, but after checking out a few schools, we decided to take the leap.

The first month of her homeschooling was really brutal for us until we discovered her learning style. Joy is a kinesthetic learner which means she likes to learn by completing hands-on activities, so we started thinking of creative kinesthetic ways to teach her.
Recently, we took a trip to Wal-Mart and decided to incorporate a counting lesson into the visit. As we walked down the aisles, we had Joy count the items we put in our cart. That counting lesson went well. When we arrived at the cookie and cracker aisle, she automatically noticed Teddy Grahams new “TEDDY SOFT BAKED Filled Snacks”. Since Joy loved the “TEDDY SOFT BAKED Filled Snacks”, I thought it would to turn our snack time into an additional kinesthetic math lesson.
This week in our homeschooling lessons we are teaching Joy how to count to 10. We’ve been having trouble with Joy remembering the number order of 4, 5 and 6. During her snack time, we encouraged her to count. Since Joy enjoyed both eating and counting the “TEDDY SOFT BAKED Filled Snacks” packs, snack time became a fun, simple, and successful way for us to help her reinforce her counting skills. You should give it a try.
Check out this cute video of Joy counting and her responses to how “TEDDY SOFT BAKED Filled Snacks” taste.
“TEDDY SOFT BAKED Filled Snacks” are a loveable bear-shaped snack made with quality ingredients such as milk, eggs, and chocolate. Matt and I are very picky about the type of and amount of snacks that we give Joy, so the fact that they contain no high fructose corn syrup, no artificial flavors, and no artificial colors made them our new go-to snacks when we are on the road. Joy loves these yummy vanilla filled snacks.
