    1,2,3,4,5,6 six colorful math games in one sturdy box! Students practice numbers 1-20, 1-100, place value 0-999, and addition and subtraction skills as they play the variety of games. Numbees features a hive on the board where each hexagon on the board holds a number between 2 and 17. Players start in the middle of the board, spin the spinner to show + or 1 to 3, and then move to the appropriate spot to make their way out of the hive. 1-100 Tracks is reminiscent of a train-themed Chutes and Ladders board as players spin the spinner to move up to 9 spaces. Landing on an arrow takes you up or down by 10. The Great Snail Race has two players rolling a die to race to the finish; certain spaces allow children to add or subtract small numbers to jump. In Place Value Round Up, players roll the die and move that amount of spaces, and then round the number on their new space either up or down to the nearest ten. Each ten holds a special instruction to follow if you round to it, such as moving extra spaces forward or backwards. Number Dominoes have children match addition and subtraction facts to numerals and pictures. The last game is really more of a manipulative, holding different colored hundred, ten, and one cards on a ring, each with 1-9 in order to create numbers up to 999. The bottom card has a visible tab that has hundreds, tens, and units written on it, so students can see which number is in which place. Parents and teachers can use it to play "Guess My Number." Most pieces are made out of thick, coated cardboard to last though many uses.

    A fun introduction to letters and sounds for your littlest learners. They will practice letter recognition, letter-sound association, matching sounds, following directions, problem solving, and more as they enjoy the colorful images. Instructions are read to your child. Stars and check marks show how many letters and sounds were matched correctly. Footprints across the bottom of the screen track progress. After exercises, there are games as a reward. Develop essential pre-school skills and build reading readiness. Be sure to add lots of reading time with your child. As you read a story, you can remind them that they worked on that sound today on the computer. Then the next time you do the exercises, remind your child of the story and the sounds such as the beginning of character's names. It's the cross-referencing that helps this new knowledge stick! Recommended for ages 3-5. Minimum system requirements: Windows Vista, XP, 2000 or Mac OS X 10.5, 10.4.11, 10.3.9. ~ Sara

    Who doesn't love a little cheese on their sandwich? The premise is simple: grab a piece of cheese and cover all the condiments on your bread. Each slice of bread contains a different combination of condiments-peanut butter and jelly, pickles and ketchup, mustard and olives. Grab a piece of cheese and cover the toppings so none of the fixins' can be seen through the holes in the cheese. 24 double-sided pieces of bread and 22 slices of cheese provide multiple game playing scenarios to build visual spatial coordination and speed. Instructions included. Fun for group or solitary play. ~ Deanne

    A competitive memory game with a fun tactile element, up to five players can compete to catch cute goldfish with collapsible tails. There are only five fish to catch, and each one has a tail of a different color that collapses into their head, so each fish looks alike until you pick it up and you see the tail! Players take turns flipping over lily pads which tell you which fish to catch based on the tail color. At the beginning of the game, players will be trying to distinguish the correct fish from the center of the table, but after several players have caught a fish, you’ll need to remember who has the purple fish, the red fish, etc. Play continues until all cards have been drawn, and the player with the most fish at the end wins! For 2-5 players.

       This is a guide to developmentally appropriate activities in many learning areas – home life/social emotional, math/manipulatives, art/music, science/sensory, language/literacy, outdoor/gross motor, and field trip suggestions. Very little prep is needed to do the activities, just gather the supplies and books listed for a complete introduction with young children or accompaniment to your math and phonics/reading for kindergarten, 1st or 2nd grade. Each month (September through May) incorporates a theme and a character trait into the activities, and is 3-hole punched so you can place the pages in a binder for easy access and storage. Printables are included and step-by-step instructions will make it easy for any parent to work through the activities. You should plan on 2 to 4 activities per day, but plan for what fits into your schedule – “flexibility” is the name of this game. 296 pgs, pb.

     

      Within the packet of pages, you will receive a monthly overview printed on card stock that can be hung up so mom can see what they will be covering during the month – a good visual and planning tool. Sections on the monthly overview list the activities to be done in each area of learning. An Introduction to the program explains the philosophy and a list of what will be covered by theme and character trait. The rest of the pages have beautiful photographs, and step-by-step instructions for implementation.

      Let me give you a sampling of one month of the program. The theme for September is “The World I Live In,” and the character trait is “wonder.” Mom’s Toolbox is the first part of every month and this is where some special resources or items will be listed. In September the “Private Eye” loupe and the book Global Art by Mary Ann Kohl are mentioned. Anything found in the “Mom’s Toolbox” section would be good to get your hands on for incorporation later in the lesson. Home Life and Social/Emotional is the first activity section for September and includes the activities of using balloons and a laundry basket to ‘take a hot air balloon ride,’ make a hot air balloon snack, practice your manners by saying please/thank you, clearing dishes after a meal, and planning an emergency exit plan for your home. You can tell already that not all activities will work for all ages, but that’s the beauty – you can adapt as you need to, pick-and-choose as you see fit. The book list for September includes Hot Air, A House is a House for Me, Can You Hear It, Frog and Toad, and He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands. Language and Literacy for September includes tactile letter practice, children developing their own story, and making a book. Math and Manipulatives include activities such as counting and swinging, making a spindle box (counting box), making shapes, a nature math book, and playing a water bottle marble game. Science and Sensory will have your little ones exploring outdoors with simple tools like magnifiers, binoculars, nature guides, etc., making a nature journal and a pendulum, cooking up a batch of herbal tea play dough and creating nature scenes, making an artistic pond, and make a nesting set using cans. Art and Music includes using chicken wire to use as a weaving loom with fabric scraps, making a painting on a long piece of butcher paper, sculpting clay tree faces, using coffee filters to create artistic reproductions, making salt and mirror art, and learning the song, “He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands.” Gross Motor and Outside has activities to develop ball skills and play games like Squish the bug, Hit the Hula Hoop, Wonder-Ball and running an obstacle course. Field Trip suggestions are touring the local news station or grocery store. At the end of each month is a supply list so you can see everything at a glance for easier preparation; most items will be things from around your home. A page for monthly memories and two planning pages are included at the end of the month, as well.

      Throughout each month, on every page, are photographs of the activities and children performing the tasks mentioned on the pages. Each month follows a similar format, so it’s pretty easy to get into a routine that fits your lifestyle. The Printables are on card stock and include photos, game instructions and game pieces, and other items that are mentioned during the monthly activities.

      Intended to give some guidance but not dictate the schedule, Year of Playing Skillfully can become a partner for you and your family as you begin the educational journey with your young learners. ~ Donna

The rules are easy: choose your puzzle, orient the game board, and place the little pigs (and big bad wolf with the 'night puzzles') to match the pictured challenge.

    The Teacher Guides provide everything the teacher needs for her part in the teacher-student interaction that is the foundation of this program. While marginally helpful in many spelling programs, the TGs are the core of this one. The General Lesson overview and Sample Lesson Plan found in the beginning are just a prelude to comprehensive daily lessons. With reduced copies of the Student Book, teacher info is "around the edges." After a brief introduction which reviews the Phonics Focus, each of the 34 detailed weekly lesson plans includes a Teaching Overview, Definitions, Word Study Questions, Activities, Dictation, Guided Student Work [teacher-student activities such as spelling riddles, word equations (i.e. king k + s = _______), and missing sound words] and a Test. There is variety in most of these activities/work, but two tasks are consistent through each lesson. Colorful Letters requires the student to write (in pencil) words with "bullets" between syllables and then go back and write over vowels/vowel teams in red and consonant teams/blends with blue and slash through silent e. Dictation is the other important part with one day devoted to various aspects: writing letter or letter teams that spell a sound, writing spelling words, and writing a sentence from an informative paragraph included in the student books that features a number of the week's words. The appendix includes a reproducible weekly spelling test form, spelling review games, spelling rules reference sheets, a list of common English contractions, a phonics overview for the teacher, and (the important) Colorful Keys answer key.
