Didi and Ditto First Grade: The Wolf King
starts off with the wolves banding together and forcing the residents of Jako's Valley to do what they say. In order to survive, the animal residents must recognize the Wolf King as their leader and do whatever his various lieutenants say.
That's where our heroes, Didi and Ditto, come in. The beavers challenge the Wolf King. They claim that beavers are smarter than wolves --and if they prove it to the Wolf King, then he and his pack will leave the valley. But if they should fail, one of the two beavers (the one that you didn't choose to play as) will be the Wolf King's personal servant.
So now one of the beavers will travel across the valley challenging each of the king's men to some sort of educational challenge. These tasks range from shapes, measuring, subtracting, problem solving, syllables, vocabulary, word origins, plurals and proper nouns - and that's just the math and reading subjects. The science skills that are practiced include identifying and classifying objects, animal anatomy, human anatomy, reading maps and other similar skills.
Didi and Ditto also has activities that allow the child to make short musical works, mix colors and do some basic drawing.
All-in-all, these various activities are a great way to help your child build upon the topics discussed in the classroom. This is a great way for children to spend an afternoon when they get home from school. From what I've seen, kids love the Didi and Ditto characters and they enjoy the tasks that are set in front of them.
