Phonics Game Review and GIVEAWAY

The amazing people at Junior Learning sent me their 6 Phonics Game set to use in my classroom.  I just loved the variety of games that were included.

Check out each game and enter to win your own below!  PLUS- use the code GAMES to get 25% any of their 6 Game sets!
These are the CVVC and CVCC word puzzles.  These were great because they had the picture and each puzzle has a unique cut out to make it self correcting!

This Double Vowel Downhill game has your kiddos spinning the spinner to get the vowel letters.  If your kiddos can make a word out of the letters by their chip, you move to that spot.  If you can't make a word, you stay where you are.

What is nice about this game is there is a word list on the game board.
On the back of the Double Vowel Downhill game, there is the R-Controlled Rapids.  This game is played the same way as the double vowel game, but your kiddos make r-controlled vowel words.  On the canoe there is a word list to help out your little ones.

This was a fun real and nonsense word sort- Aliens vs. Earthlings!  Each chip had  a word on it and your kiddos put it on the airplane or UFO.  On the back of each chip there is a human or alien to help with self-correcting!

On the back of the Aliens vs. Earthlings there is the Yes/No Machine!  This game includes simple sentences that is either true or false.  Your kiddos move it to the Yes or No spot on the game board.  Just like the Aliens vs. Earthlings game, the back of the cards have the right answer.

This one was perfect for our current phonics unit!  These are Digraph Dominoes and your kiddos fill in the blank of each word with the matching digraph.  These also have color coding on each domino to help your kiddos make the correct match!

Now it is your chance to win your own set!  Enter below!

    1. Reading Makes Your Child Smarter

      Reading is known to have numerous benefits. It increases your world knowledge, enhances your vocabulary, and works to improve your reading comprehension abilities.

      But did you know that reading can actually make you smarter?

      In fact, reading not only can make a child smarter, the very act of reading can even help to compensate for modest levels of cognitive ability in children by building their vocabulary and general knowledge! This is a finding reported by researchers Cunningham and Stanovich in a report titled "What Reading Does For the Mind".

      The simple fact here is that reading can make your child smarter, and that learning to read early on is directly linked to later success in life.

      1) Did you know that your child's vocabulary at 3 years old predicts his or her grade one reading success? [1]

      2) Did you know that vocabulary and reading ability in first grade strongly predicts grade 11 outcomes? [2]

      3) Did you know that your child's reading skill in grade 3 directly influences high school graduation? Studies have found that children who cannot read proficiently by grade 3 are four times more likely to leave school without a diploma than proficient readers! [3]

      But how do you teach a young child to read, and isn't that the job of the school and teachers?

      You can't be more wrong...

      With the right tools, knowledge, and techniques, teaching young children to read can be a simple and effective process. I'd like to introduce you to a fantastic reading program called Children Learning Reading, a super effective method for teaching children to read - even children as young as just 2 or 3 years old.

      The creators of this program have used it to teach their four children to read before age 3, and by reading, I mean real, phonetic reading.

      I can understand if you find that hard to believe... In fact, I had a difficult time believing it myself as well... that is, until I saw the videos they posted documenting the reading progress of the their children - not to mention all the videos other parents have sent in showcasing their children's reading progress after using the Children Learning Program. After learning more about their methods and techniques, it became clear how it's possible to teach young children to read effectively.

      It is truly within your ability to teach your child to read in a relatively short period of time spending just 10 to 15 minutes each day.
