Super Duper, Super Gift Ideas!
Looking for that special gift idea? Something more than just a toy or electronic gadget? How about an educational game? Take a look at the great games Super Duper Publications has to offer. We received Hopping Frogs!, Turtle Talk, and some Tongue Twister Pencils. What parent would not enjoy their child receiving a game that encourages learning?
Hopping Frogs is the Hippity-Hoppity Language and Articulation Game for P, B, T, D, K, G, and F (PreK and up). Hopping Frogs will help your child with their language development, by using Vocabulary Building, Simple Analogies, and Naming. With a colorful board, lily pads and plenty of leaping frogs, this game will be sure to hold your child's attention as they learn. This is a game, I personally would set up on the floor. Set up the board and pace as many frogs as you would like on the trees, plants and flowers in and around the pond. Set the lily pad cards around the game board. As a player answers one of the questions correctly, he/she may jump frogs off the board to their lily pad. (Count the frogs at the bottom of the card and that is how many frogs they may hop to their lily pad.) The person with the most frogs wins. I do have to say though that this would probably be so much fun hopping the frogs around that you would not have to choose a winner, just let them enjoy!
Turtle Talk is a Fluency Language Game (PreK and up). This game promotes Vocabulary Building, Describing, Sequencing, Critical Thinking, Listening, Reading and Storytelling. Once again we have a colorful board with activities that will encourage your child to play and have fun while learning. Answering questions while moving their token around the board and collecting tokens from a cute, little turtle. There are several variations on this game that will help your child in various areas of their learning. I love the larger foam dice in the game. Much easier for younger children to handle and play with.
The last item we received are the Tongue Twister Pencils. Perfect as a little extra gift, or as party favors. Each pencil has a tongue twister on the side. Imagine the fun at a party by challenging each person to say their tongue twister three times in a row. Here is a sample:"Ten tiny turtles sitting on a tiny tin tub turned tan." Can you say that three times quickly?
Remember, this is just three of the endless possibilities that Super Duper Publications has to offer. You can search their site many different ways, from age related to subject. They also carry games that help with specific learning disabilities. This is perfect for a teacher looking for new games, a homeschooling parent looking to add to their curriculum, or just for a parent looking for a fun game for their child. With Cyber Monday fast approaching approaching be sure to add Super Duper Publications to your list of websites to browse for gifts. Super Duper Publications has also been kind enough to allow me to share a gift code for my neighbors here At the Fence, so make sure you use this code-D95UEQMS if you go shopping. Oh, and don't forget that shipping is always free on orders over $20.
