The first game we received is Pirate Talk.
Your students are about to embark on a swashbuckling adventure as they sail the high seas with Pirate Talk, the receptive and expressive language skills game! As students respond to each prompt, they move from island to island on the colorful game board and collect gold coins. The prompts reinforce seven essential communication skills: Sentence Repetition, Answering Questions, Following Directions, Categorizing, Inferencing, Describing, and Social Skills.
Even though we are not in a classroom setting, I never miss an opportunity to teach my little man. Especially because his progress report just came back showing that language arts is a weak point of his. He had a score of 100 in math and science but an 87 in language arts. Even though that is a GOOD grade, it obviously is not his strong point.
Out of the two games we recieved from Super Duper Publication for review, Pirate Talk is his favorite. The electronic spinner is SOOO FUN! Honestly, I have never seen one so this had my attention too! This game builds receptive and expressive skills in a FUN and rewarding way. The categories are areas that interest my son such as school, community, home, people and activities. The cards are very bright and colorful. The game is really easy to play, and the instructions are very clear cut. Basically you ask the child questions about the photo they are seeing and correct answers allow you to move forward and collect pirate "booty."
We also received Grammar Gumballs:
Grammar Gumballs is a sweet game for teaching and reinforcing basic grammar skills in young children. It targets nine of the early morphemes and grammatical structures identified by Roger Brown (1973). Children with language and learning difficulties often leave these structures out of their speech. Grammar Gumballs includes five levels of difficulty for each illustration. You begin with a simple listening/imitation task and gradually progress to spontaneous production.Grammar Gumballs includes 180 illustrated cards (20 for each area) to teach nine grammatical forms:
