Get in the game
Play a very important role in the Doodleburg Games by helping reporter Dianne Inkwell keep score. Line up with athletes in lanes 1, 2, and 3, and trace the race! Aim for the bullseye on the archery range and practise writing the numbers 1 to 6. Join a game of Snow Ball with Addy and Linus, and keep an eye on numbers 7 to 9. Count from 1 to 20 to help Mr. Pencil connect the dots, and draw a fan to cheer on the athletes. Trace shapes to draw a racecar, and help Molly measure different heights and lengths. Along the way Diane Inkwell misplaces her pen, but luckily children have a record of the players' scores that they wrote with their very own LeapReader!
Count on the learning fun
With the LeapReader and the Learn to Write Numbers with Mr. Pencil activity set, children explore basic addition and subtraction and learn to write numbers with proper stroke order. Voiced Doodleburg characters guide the learning and get writers in the game. Step-by-step audio support provides instant feedback and guidance as children practise their handwriting and number writing on special mess-free LeapFrog writing paper. As new writers form each number, the instruction goes from basic lines to more complex strokes. Fun activities and games are incorporated into the experience, keeping children engaged as they build writing fluency.
