Back to School with Yoto!
August is here, and the dog days of summer are almost over (fun fact: they start on July 3rd and are named for the period of time following the rise of Sirius the Dog star), and with summer coming to a close, it’s nearly time to head back to school.
Dun, dun, duuuuun ...
But, fear not! Yoto has a wide selection of both educational and mindfulness content to help ease kids' anxiety around returning to school and get them excited about learning. And, with new content released every two weeks, you and your children can always look forward to unlocking our wide world of audio.
We know there has been so much uncertainty over the past year and we are pleased to be able to offer a selection of titles that help your child feel ready to return to the classroom. Whether it's upping your math game with Ladybird Addition and Subtraction, or finding the time to reflect in-between lessons with Mini Mindfulness: Mindful Moments - pick up our recommended cards for back-to-school and get prepared before September arrives.
Did you know that math could be fun? No, really …
Ladybird Addition and Subtraction is a creative and interactive audiobook designed to help 3-6 year-olds develop basic mathematics skills, working with numbers up to 20.
With games and repeatable exercises, this audiobook introduces children to number bonds and will help them practice their basic maths skills. The possibilities (and the numbers) are endless!
Mini Mindfulness: Mindful Moments (5-8, 8-12+)
As things return to normal post-COVID, many kids will feel anxious about returning to the classroom. Yoto mindfulness content can help. Our "Calm Collection" bundle includes three cards all designed to help kids relax, practice mindfulness, and get a good night's sleep.
Practicing mindfulness helps children to stay calm and relaxed throughout the day, teaching them to acknowledge and process their emotions in a healthy way (hey, that rhymed!).
As kids head back to the classroom, many of them may be feeling anxious or stressed. Mindfulness can help kids to positively recognize their emotions, improve their focus, and prepare them for learning. Plus, practicing mindfulness can be a great bonding experience for you and your kids. Pop on a Yoto Card, close your eyes, and relax - together.
My First 100 Words (0-5, 5-8, 8-12+)
Included in the Yoto Starter Pack
From ant to bee, learning languages has never been so much fun. Children can hear the words for their favourite things (such as ‘fire engine’ and ‘rainbow’) in five languages: French, German, Spanish, Italian and English. At the same time, an accompanying image is triggered on your Yoto Player’s display to help with learning.
The Planets and The Solar System (5-8, 8-12+)
Author: Jen Green
Soar through the stars, planets, and beyond in this educational audio journey all about space.
Living busily on Planet Earth, we rarely remember that we inhabit only a minuscule part of the universe. In The Planets and The Solar System, Jen Green paints the wider picture, and takes us on a journey across billions of kilometers in our galaxy, from our Sun to near and distant planets. Some, like Mercury, have a molten core surrounded by crust and spin quickly; Jupiter, on the other hand, is a big ball of gas. For 2,500 years, mathematicians and scientists, from Pythagoras to Hubble, have investigated our universe and found that the dimensions, the temperatures, and the speeds (light years!) are unbelievably extreme. A fascinating introduction for younger listeners.
This play-along audio card pack brings letters to life for young learners.
A is for Alphabet encourages kids to explore their imaginations and creativity as they learn the alphabet. The pack contains seven LEGO® DUPLO® Yoto Cards full of songs, activities, soundscapes and a story which bring letters to life in fun and engaging ways.
This audio pack can be enjoyed on its own and has also been specially designed to be enhanced by the LEGO DUPLO Alphabet Truck, sold separately.
