Trickle Down Effect
My three year old was hanging around during math camp and sits with my kids while they watch Crewton's videos. I've never asked her to participate yet anytime another kid is doing math she asks to play along with the blocks. I've never formally introduced any math skills and she's never done more than play with the blocks but today I tried an experiment.
I showed her a ten and asked her to make a ten by finding the missing block. She did it without a problem and she wanted more. It's the perfect way to keep her engaged while the other kids are working on their math. She has no clue that she's learning to add and subtract and she has no idea that most people would consider these skills too challenging for a three year old. I love that without formally introducing a thing she's actively absorbing and learning, and most importantly.....having fun!
With one kid a lifetime password is an amazing deal, with more than one it becomes a steal. You'll be amazed as you watch the skills trickle down to the younger kids and the older kids take such joy in being able to pass down their knowledge to the younger ones.

Note: from time to time the passwords change. Simply e-mail me for a new one or a new passport as the case may be. Annual passes are good for one year, lifetime passes are good for as long as the site remains up, (site has been up for eight years now). All single page passwords have lifetime renewal.
