Great family game! This is a great game for families--it's fun and challenging for all ages.

Typing Instructor for KIDS Platinum 5.0 Windows

This (Typing Instructor for KIDS Platinum 5.0 Windows) is a nice, varied program that keeps my ADHD daughter’s interest. She has done well learning where the keys are and how to position her hands. The two major drawbacks to this program are that, one, the speaking voices can be rather annoying at times; and, two, as with any computer typing program, you’re going to have to monitor your child to make sure they’re really keeping their hands in the correct position. Otherwise, the games are fun and it does help them to learn to type.

Purpllinker

Purpllinker

Much better than I expected!

We got this for our 4-year-old daughter, and it has been used so much! She loves to make letters with it, although it bothers her a little that she can’t really do curves. However, she is happy just doing pointy letters with it, as well as using it in many other ways. Her baby brother also loves to manipulate it. What is it that makes this little plastic object so fascinating? I’m not quite sure, but it is definitely a hit around here. It can be made into many different shapes, and is also a great toy for the car. One thing I especially like about it is the way it has allowed my daughter to grasp some of the directionality of letters. She figured out by using the Purpllinker how N and Z, M and W, etc., are the same shape, just turned different ways.

Anaconda

As a former home school parent, I’ve been familiar with Timberdoodle for years. As a classroom teacher in public and private schools, when I needed quality, “thinking” games and activities for my classroom students, I continued to turn to Timberdoodle. I currently teach in Alaska. When I first discovered Anaconda in the fall of 2011, I thought it looked like the coolest logic puzzle ever. I purchased one for my resource classroom. Boys and girls ages 6-15 love Anaconda. Even some of my students who are learning disabled enjoy figuring out how to solve these puzzles with occasional help from me. I’ve watched children work together on one puzzle and enjoy sharing their ideas. Once one puzzle is accomplished, they are eager to move on to the next. Nobody is interested in looking at the solutions at the back of the book because they enjoy being ‘puzzled’ so much :) Adding more of these puzzles to my classroom arsenal is a given. One is not enough.

The Usborne Sticker Dressing Knights

The Usborne Sticker Dressing Knights

What child wouldn’t love this! A sticker book about knights! My daughter loves this book. She is all about. Princesses, princes, knights and castles so this book was right up her alley! When we are through with it, it will make a nice book for us to keep. I do sort of wish the stickers were reusable, but it’s ok that they aren’t we still have the soldier and knight books, and they aren’t too expensive so we will keep buying them as they come out with more. It’s a great book that incorporates something most kids love, stickers! :) . How can you go wrong with that?
