The LeapReader Ready, Set, Read and Write Party Sponsored by LeapFrog

I received the Leap Reader and book accessories for the purpose of the post, but the opinions stated herein are 100% my own.




Leaping into literacy-500


Leaping into Literacy week is coming to a close with a bang!  LeapFrog gave me the opportunity to invite some wonderful children over and have an awesome Ready, Set, Read and Write Party – where we got to try out the LeapReader and some awesome books and accessories.

Since I was behind the camera, I asked a preschool teacher to come lead the festivities!

Take a look at all the awesomeness that ensued!

We did a few different activities – testing out the books and all the features of the Leap Reader.


Alphabet Dough



Get Ready for Kindergarten Book

Homemade play dough (recipe coming later)


Play Dough Fun


We had a great time with the play dough – listing to the LeapReader say the letters and the letter sounds – repeating and then making letters with the play dough.  All the kids had a chance to use the LeapReader to listen to the first letter in each of their names.  When one child choose “p”, one of the girls even made a pizza!  Unfortunately for their hands, I put in too much food coloring, so they had to wash them really well before we went on to the next activity.


Writing Time – Printable Activities




Printable Sheets


Fun! I printed out 4 different printouts for each child – and I think they colored all of them – and wrote out the words! They had great fun with this activity.


Flash Card Mash-up




Talking Words Factory Flash Cards


Each flash card had either a beginning letter, or an ending digraph.  We passed out beginning and ending sounds, and using the LeapReader, they matched up – and made words – sometimes silly words!


Post Card Mash Up


Story in 3D




Monsters University LeapReader Book

LeapFrog Monsters University 3D Glasses


Monsters Universtiy in 3D


This was one of the favorite activities.  They read the Monsters 3D book, each taking turns using the LeapReader.




The kids had a really great time learning with LeapFrog, playing with play dough, using the LeapReader and eating and drinking fun LeapFrog food and drinks!


LeapReader Ready Set Read and write party


I will publish all recipes made during this party on Friday!




I received the LeapReader and accessories in exchange for this post.  However, all my opinions stated here are 100% my own.

  1. Miss T LOVES her LeapReader. We got it when they didn’t even have a software for it (before July 26th). It is an amazing device. And they always give so many freebies! It was a great upgrade from her LeapPad which she still uses.
