    This older cousin of the Funny Phonics game achieves the same standard of replay-ability and motivating fun in practice, only with the goal of learning parts of speech. Up to four sentence constructors can play. Durable game board, double-sided player boards and cards offset the somewhat flimsy 12-sided cardstock die (that you may need to reinforce with tape!). Strategy, chance, and changing outcomes keep game play exciting. There are two levels of play. The shorter version, for younger readers, requires them to make only two, six-word sentences using four parts of speech: nouns, adjectives, articles, and verbs. If you are playing with even younger children, you can play with just nouns, adjectives, and verbs (by folding the player boards differently). The longer version requires two complete sentences, each using 2 adjectives, 2 nouns, a verb, article, and preposition. The 136 word and picture cards are color-coded by function and stacked in piles by color on the game board. Players move around the board depending on rolls of the die and/or instructions on the game board, collecting part of speech cards. If they're lucky, they'll roll or land on a space that lets them choose "Any Card", giving them an edge in completing sentences (more quickly and sillier). Word cards must be read (most are simple words and sight words) to be won. Sentences are constructed from collected cards by placing them on the correctly labeled (noun, verb, etc.) squares on player boards. The winner is the first person to make two silly sentences and read them aloud. Depending upon the reading level of your children, you may control the type (word or picture) of card used or its difficulty – or even use two separate decks for differing reading abilities among players (You can always expand play, too, by making some of your own cards to use with the game). It's a great little game for practicing sentence construction and parts of speech in an entertaining context.

    This fun book would be great for story prompts, silly drawing ideas, learning basic vocabulary, or even picking text for penmanship practice. Pages are divided into three sections - three spiral-bound books vertically on the same coil, within a hard cover. The top portion has an article and a noun (the tiger, the lamp, the fork), the middle section has a present tense verb (teaches, wipes, throws), and the bottom has another article and a noun. Flip through each section to create funky sentences like, “The koala washes the rope” or “The scarf cleans the earth.” With one million possible combinations, there are a ton of potential activities! – Laura

    "Dad loves the speedy, itchy book. Mr. Nelson hides the sweet boots. Mom chases the pizza." What is up with these silly sentences? Make these and more with this easy to play language game. Simply spin the spinner to select the part of speech (noun, verb, adjective, proper noun), place a card of that part of speech on the board, then read the silly sentences! Some of the cards are pick-your-own, so use the included dry erase marker to write down the silliest word you can think of! A fun game for family night or a great extension activity for English class! – Laura

    The object of this zany game is to use five cards to make a sentence. 54 cards are color coded and divided into four categories: adjectives, nouns, verbs, and conjunctions. Players draw and discard until a player can lay down a five-card sentence, which is worth 5 points. Play continues until someone scores 20 points. Kids will love learning the parts of speech with this wacky game! ~ Rachel

    The woozle is very hungry – and picky! He only eats silly snacks, and it's up to you to feed him. Players roll the die or spin the spinner to determine how many snacks to feed the woozle. Place the snacks on the included plastic spoon and walk (or hop or dance) to the woozle. This cooperative game grows with your children and has three levels of play of increasing difficulty. Note: snacks may have names/illustrations that some families find gross (e.g. "booger chili" and "lemon-flavored underwear").

    Even non-readers can practice sentence construction – and enjoy the silly sentences they create doing it! Players build sentences, trying to reach the other end of the game board, so they're motivated to create longer and longer sentences. The cards are illustrated and color-coded to help children determine where to place them in the sentence. Who knows what they will create? The dragon dances in a house? A duck attacks a barn? The duck and the owl dance in the barn? Anything is possible – and endlessly entertaining! For up to 4 players.

    Teaching writing can be very rewarding, even if frustrating at times. The key is to find a program that teaches the useful skills of writing in a way that children will open up to and enjoy. If we ask the question, "What do children love?", one answer will always be, "Games, without a doubt, games!" So, why not try and incorporate games into the writing process? Here is a book that resulted from that. The five parts of this book are: first, activities designed to ease kindergarten and 1st graders into writing; second, slightly silly and not very long writing activities (this way it is more something to enjoy than to think of as an assignment); third, nine playful ways to improving spelling and handwriting, and to increase understanding of English grammar; fourth, activities that help children work on more sophisticated stories; and last of all, activities that involve longer writing projects, some of which will require a half hour or so of time. As the teacher, you can select whichever activities and games you feel would be best for your children, made easier because each game is graded and placed into one of the five areas above. 52 games in all. ~ Zach

    Teaching your child to read can sometimes be a challenge—so let the Reading Game lend a hand! If your child likes to be read to, is familiar with letters, and shows interest in storytime by pretending to read or wants words pointed out while reading – then you are ready for this game. This award winning game is by Kenneth Hodkinson, the author of the Wordly Wise program. This game introduces children to 180 sight words and helps them memorize and remember those words through playing a simple memory game. The sight words found in this game are taken from the Dolch Word List for PK through 1st and from "100 most commonly used English words from the Reading Teacher's Book of Lists by Fry". This game can even be used in classroom or tutoring situations since it is written to meet Common Core Reading Standards for Literature and Informational Text for Kindergarten and 1st grades.

    So, how easy is it? There are six readers that use 30 words each. There are 60 word cards (two of each word) that correspond to each book. Place ten cards (two each of five words that are listed in the Rules and Teacher's Guide) face down on the table. Two players take turns flipping the cards over until one gets a match. When a match is made, the player says the word several times in a clear voice. Do this until all five words have their match, then shuffle and play again. Play with the first set of five words until the child can read all five of them without difficulty. Repeat this same process with the next list of five words. Children are asked to read test sentences after every other word group in order to keep all the words fresh. After going through all 30 words, the child is then ready to read the story book. Follow this same procedure for the words for each of the six storybooks. Words from previous books are used along with new words in subsequent stories.

    The six storybooks found in the game are very simple to read. They are all printed in lower case letters except for the "I" and there is no punctuation. Children will know that it is the end of a sentence simply because the line ends, and breaks between sentences indicate pauses. The Reading Game includes all six storybooks and six decks of corresponding word cards (60 each) along with a Rules and Teacher's Guide. Downloadable worksheets are available at the publisher's website (thereadinggame.com) – pre/post sight word assessments, test sentence worksheets, class recording sheets for the assessments and test sentences.

    You will still want to do phonics and there is a short section of teacher's guide devoted to implementing phonics in with the material found in the game. Children will encounter sight words in everything they read, and this game will enable them to tackle some of that reading with more confidence. – Donna
