Tumble Tots: A Learning Adventure (CD ROM)

Ref: AVROMD213

(UK Postage Free )


Tumble Tots is a structured, active physical play programme for children from 6 months to 7 years. It has been designed to develop children's motor skills of agility, balance and co-ordination during their formative years. At the same time, through the programme children develop their self-confidence, independence, self-discipline, self-worth and sense of security and identity. The international success of Tumble Tots has been built upon the commitment of developing children's physical and social skills, and positive personality traits within a loving and caring environment. Today, Tumble Tots is now a well-established national and international business. In the UK there are over 450 centres operated by more than 80 Franchisees, and a current membership base of 60,000 children. Since its inception in 1979, close to a million children worldwide have benefited from the Tumble Tots Programme.

AVID Entertainment proudly presents its first ever CD ROM in conjunction with Tumble Tots - the leading national pre-school active physical play programme

The material on the CD ROM is designed to encourage learning through play for children in the 3-5 age range, when children start to use computers more widely.
In terms of the National Curriculum, this is the foundation stage (ages3-5), covering immediate pre-school and reception year children.
The Aim of the CD-Rom is fun, but it has been designed with educational aims in line with the 'Learning Journey' as defined by the National Curriculum for the foundation stage, focusing in particular on the 'physical development' aspect of the curriculum, supported by games which develop key skills for preschool children.
The CD-Rom aims to develop skills in the six board areas of learning defined by the National Curriculum learning journey for this age group:

Personal, social and emotional development
Communication, language and literacy
Mathematical development
Knowledge and understanding of the world
Physical development
Creative development

In order to ensure the educational integrity of the project, the material has been developed in association with curriculum advisers in maths and literacy.

The Content
Tumble Tot is your guide throughout, providing simple voiceover instructions to each of the games. There are no text instructions on screen, so no reading is required. All the instructions are by voice only. Four simple icons are used for navigation.

The Songs
The songs are designed to encourage children to participate. The intention is that the child steps away from the comuter and joins in with Tumble Tot to do the actions.

Each animated song is accompanied by a suite of interactive activities and games.
With each song is the facility to print out a black and white outline of the scene for your child to colour in.
Each song also has a nursery rhyme, with words highlighted by the Tumble Tot to encourage active partipation.

Dingle Dangle Scarecrow: Hey Diddle Diddle
Three Little Monkeys: Hickory Dickory Dock
Wiggly Woo: Mary Mary Quite Contrary

The games can be seen as building blocks to learning. Some contain different levels to encourage development.
