Preparing children for kindergarten includes not just beginning reading skills but
also many other areas such as numbers and quantities.
Here a 3 year old is measuring quantities
as part of the Jazzles 'Beginning Math' extensions. As a grandparent, all you have to do is to follow the easy lesson guides and have fun together!
You're Not Alone!
Nearly 1 in 5 grandparents provide over 40 hours a week of daycare!
Jazzles can turn as many of those hours as you like into fun, play based, directed and actively engaged learning.
At the very least, by using Jazzles with its easy to follow Lesson Plans, your grandchildren will at least meet, or far more likely well exceed, the skills levels teachers expect of them when they enter kindergarten.
Assuming five to six months regular use, Jazzles will develop:-
Visual and cognitive skills
Non-cognitive (social emotional) skills
Fine Motor skills
Gross Motor skills
Importance of School Readiness

Jazzles also uses a mix of computer games to develop listening, oral, visual and
digital skills - as well as a range of simple technology skills.
These include navigation, click, hold down, drag,
drop and release mouse skills. Children as young as 3 are able to navigate the Jazzles site quite easily.

Create Successful Readers Without Knowing Anything About Teaching Reading!
Hi, I'm Lesley Beth. I'll help you get your grandchildren well prepared for Kindergarten entry. I am an experienced child educator. I created Jazzles as a playful way for parents
and grandparents to launch their children into early literacy development by using music, songs and creative arts.
While Jazzles deliberately targets Literacy, it is play based with a wide range of interactivities to develop social and personal skills that are so important for succeeding at school and in life.
With Jazzles, you focus on an alphabet letter a week or every two weeks.
I have a preferred order of learning rather than going A-Z. This research based order ‘fast tracks’ children’s
ability to decode words earlier rather than later.
The order facilitates teaching phonemic skills
by combining groups of consonants and one
(1) vowel. It introduces more useful letters first,
separating letters that are visually or auditorily
confusing (e.g. ‘b’ and ‘d’), and most importantly,
focuses on the most common ‘sound’ for each
I’ll give you 3 or 4 suggested activities for each weekday and the Lesson Plans will guide you through the learning themes that center around alliterative language and relevant topics featured in each of the 26 Jazzles Animation.
Jazzles alliteratively 'enriched’ songs rapidly develop oral skills and confidence, so essential to classroom success.
Jazzles is all about generating really extraordinary levels of engagement by catering for all Learning Style preferences and 8 Multiple Intelligences!
Not only does this make learning sense but it reduces or removes behavioral issues grandparents usually encounter when children get frustrated
by boring materials.
By following the Lesson Plans, your grandchildren will develop their vocabulary, phonemic awareness, beginning reading skills and lots more through creative learning activities like dressing up, dancing, drama, developing mime and hand-actions and particularly art and crafts.
From baking cookies in letter shapes, to using black beans for math, to gluing instant coffee, herbs, spices and fruit peel or slices onto letter shapes to recall letter-sounds, you can turn lots of simple daily activities into fun, themed, engaged learning while fostering relationships, curiosity and exploration!

At the Minimum, Here's What You Can Achieve
Using Jazzles, I'll provide you with enough joyful cognitive and non-cognitive learning activities to keep your grandchildren happily interacting with you for up to 4-5 hours a day for six
months or more!!
The time you spend with them will strengthen relationships and give them the confidence to take their place in Pre-K or Kindergarten with
the self esteem that flows from early literacy.
Here's what you and Jazzles can achieve to secure your grandchildren's future before formal schooling:-
They'll be ready to read and probably be independently reading.
They'll be able to write their name.
They'll develop fine motor skills through numerous creative activities.
They'll be able to recognize a letter and know its sound.
They'll know some concepts of print - like reading left to right
They'll recognize a 'letter' and a 'word'.
They'll be able to write 'letters' and some words.
They'll develop an understanding of the musical concept of 'beat' and enjoy
a variety of musical styles and instrument sounds.
They'll have sophisticated their ideas about dance and drama.
The results will amaze you. Using the Jazzles resources and extension ideas the Jazzles Lesson Plans, you'll find your grandchildren more focused, more interested, listening more carefully, better able to follow directions, better behaved
and more on task to "learn and reinforce" new information about letters and their sounds quickly, easily and very enjoyably.
In short, your grandchildren will be ahead of the rest!!
