Word on the Street Review/Giveaway

Hi Neighbors!

Here is the promised second Out of the Box games review. Word on the Street, is a fun, exciting game that also encourages spelling. Once again this a game where you divide into two teams. Open the game board on the table between the two teams. Place each Letter Tile on the corresponding letter on the "Median Strip" (middle lane) of the game board. Decide whether to use the green side (easier) or the blue side (harder). Place the timer and card tray on the table within reach of both teams. Decide which team will go first. Now, I am going to try and describe how to play Word on the Street, but it is a lot easier to see it played. The goal is to capture eight tiles. As the first team draws their card and places it face up on the table, a member of the opposing team flips over the timer. Players on the first team then brainstorm to come up with a word that fits. There is a list that describes allowable words and words that are not allowable. They must decide on the word they will use, say it out loud and then move the letters before time runs out. The "Letter Tiles" are moved one space toward the team for each time it is used in the word. You can only use real one word answers. When time runs out a player from the opposing team yells "Stop!" and the team must immediately stop moving tiles. The teams then trade and the other team becomes the team on the street. Play moves back and forth until one team has collected 8 tiles.

Now, I am going to tell you why Word on the Street can be very noisy. While your opponents are trying to come up with a word, you get to yell suggestions at them. So while they are trying to decide which word best fits, say "Part of an apple" you are yelling out "Buffalo, refrigerator, snowball..." Anything that might hinder them.

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
