I was very eager to try this Smart Projector out. My 3 year old son knows all of his letters & their phonetic sounds, as well as some spelling, but he absolutely hates drawing or trying to write/trace letters. I have worked with him in tracing workbooks which he likes for a little while, then gets bored of very quickly. For the life of me I just cannot get him to trace or write a letter-until now! This Smart Projector really peaked his interest because it is so simple for him to do it himself. And to have his own projector with lots of things to twist and interchange? What could be better?!
I couldn’t believe it. I thought he’d be interested for a little bit and then run off to do something else, but he spent more than an hour at his Smart Projector the first night we pulled it out of the box. He only stopped because we made him go to bed. The next several days after we received our Smart Projector he has asked several times a day to use it! He is finding a lot of pride in being able to write “octopus”, “sheep”, and other lengthy words all by himself! My son can’t even draw a straight line, and after receiving his Smart Projector he is happily tracing away whole words and coloring the animal projections on his paper! The Smart Projector is a great way to encourage children to learn how to write, to help left handed children write better, to teach both English and Spanish words, and even teach them to draw different shapes! This is a superb tool for helping to improve minor motor skills!
