The whimsical lyrics of The Twelve Days Of Christmas can get a little dizzying with pipers piping, maids a milking and a partridge in a pear tree. If you have a child who struggles a little with language, vocabulary or speech, December 25 is the perfect day to unwrap Word Joggers, Go For The Dough or Turtle Talk. Language skill games are among three of the Top 10 toys plus a few stocking stuffers recommended by Super Duper Publications, makers of fun learning materials since 1986.
Teachers and parents who have browsed the catalog or shopped from their extensive online store know that there are hundreds of products that are perfect for every kid on the list. Picking just 10 toys was no easy task, so the language specialists at Super Duper added a few stocking stuffer ideas! All potential presents are colorful, creative and educational toys that children adore.
Check out some of our favorite toys from Super Duper's Top 10 Gift Ideas!
#1 The game at the top of our list this holiday season is:
My son loves to fish (like his daddy!) so this game was instantly a hit when my son got to fish every single day...for fun objects such as food, clothing, animals and other well known items!
Little fishermen and women will get hooked on Photo Fish as they improve their sorting and classifying skills. These magnetic foam fish come with stickers showing photos of everyday items in the categories of Transportation, Clothing, Animals, Food and Around the Home. Grab a fishing pole, choose a category then reel in the fish that matches it! Comes with 60 stickers and 55 magnetic photo fish.
Grades Pre K+
Here's a friendly turtle that wants to help youngsters with their smooth and easy speech -- and then skate with them around a turtle track collecting Turtle Tokens™. In this innovative fluency and language game, players pick a card, answer a skill level question, roll the die, "skate" around the board, then eagerly receive Turtle Tokens™ (found inside the turtle) as they go! Kit includes 240 illustrated playing cards -- 40 animals, 40 home items, 40 foods, 40 things you wear and so on. With six questions per card, that's 1,440 opportunities for fluency and language practice!
Grades Pre K+
Instead of B-I-N-G-O, there's Bat-Frog-Cat-Octopus-Ant on this "bingo" card for animals. The more knowledge students have about words -- their attributes, associations, and categories -- the quicker they can retrieve and provide information about those words in conversation. Word Joggers for Categories is a fun bingo game with colorful boards and cards that target language processing skills needed for identifying, describing plus categorizing items. The vocabulary addresses six common categories (Animals, Food, Clothing, Home, School, and Transportation), with 24 items per category. Each category includes five bingo game boards and three sets of cards (Vocabulary Picture Cards, Attribute Cards, and Category Cards) for a total of 30 boards and 396 cards!
Grades Pre K+
You don't need to read to get hopping on this fun board game. This hands-on game combines the fun of children helping their frogs "jump" from the "frog pond" (board) to their "lily pads" with development of early language and articulation skills. For articulation, the 420 game cards focus on earlier developing sounds (P, B, T, D, K, G, and F) in a fun and enjoyable way. Each sound has specific question cards for initial, medial and final positions in single words.
This Story Prediction Fun Deck with Super Duper Secret Decoder has 56 cards to improve your students' ability to predict what will happen next. Students listen to or read a story and choose the answer that makes the most sense for the story ending. Students can self-check answers with the Super Duper Secret Decoder. Just hold the decoder over the answer choices. The correct answer is highlighted in invisible ink!
And don't forget the great array of stocking stuffers from Super Duper Games this holiday season! Our family is the Mini-Mouth Finger Puppets ($6.95)
