"If they can't learn the way we teach, we teach the way they learn."
When I first heard of the word "Ogalala" I immediately got intrigued about it. So I was so psyched when they invited me to learn more about this very interesting way of learning for kids.
Ogalala: System in PLAY

What is Ogalala?
If you've been reading my blog, you'll know that I have always been an advocate of "fun in learning". I enjoy seeing my son having fun doing tasks and learning at the same time. Ogalala is no different from that. They aim to teach kids in a way which they will enjoy which is through PLAYING.
Why Ogalala? The company that came up with this recognizes that parents want their children to be happy and fulfilled. We all want what's best for our children and I know most parents would like to spend time with them as much as they can. So why not use that time to have fun and learn at the same time, right?
Using Quality Time to...
But we all know that each of our children are unique. They don't learn or absorb everything the same way. So what better way for them to learn and to retain knowledge quickly than by letting them do things that they enjoy.
Every child is UNIQUE
Ms.Maye already had my attention (eventhough my little BabyBoyToy was already so excited with all the Melissa and Doug toys around him!) even before she finished discussing each slide. I wanted to know more about Ogalala.After sharing her experiences, the floor was turned over to Teacher Maia. She then explained to us how Ogalala works.

Ogalala teaches children based on the child's age group. They have divided their products into four categories: Infants, Toddlers, Preschool and Grade School. Teacher Maia explained to us how we can use Ogalala in our daily "playtime" session.
First off, Ogalala has these downloadable record charts/checklists available online which will help you start your daily activities with your little one.

They also have these downloadable Visual Stimulation Images on their website which is perfect for your newborn! I personally downloaded these images, had them printed and laminated and my 3 month old loves them so much!

Some of the Ogalala products your kids will enjoy are Melissa and Doug, HABA, Baby Einstein, Oops, etc.
I was looking at the Infant and Preschool products since my two boys are on that age group/level. I was really interested in incorporating this system to our lives.
BabyBoyToy already had his eyes on this one!
I love how Teacher Maia emphasized the importance of buying toys which children can use and benefit from as they grow up. For instance, flash cards can help infants exercise their sight, while it can teach them to be familiar with things when they become a toddler and then teach them how to read basic words once they reach the preschool stage. And yes there are still lots of materials/toys which kids can learn from!
I've learned a lot from this workshop and I know you will too! So grab the chance to learn more about this system and attend their free workshops! SIGN UP HERE
