When it comes to Christmas shopping for my kids, I like to find educational toys that make learning fun. Afterall, at this age kids learn the most through play...so why not incorporate it as much as possible?! That's why I love Learning Resources!
Learning Resources is the leading manufacturer of innovative, hands-on educational products for classrooms and the home. They have been a trusted source for teachers and parents for more than 25 years and continue to grow and impress with their diverse product line of now over 1300 products!
As I visited their website recently for gift ideas for my kids, as well as nieces and nephews...I was thrilled to see that on the homepage are easy to use categories that make Christmas shopping even easier! There are Holiday Favorites you can click on, or different age ranges as well. I began looking for Kaelyn in the 5-7 age range and instantly was drawn to the Word Whiz Electronic Flash Card. I couldn't have been more happy to learn we were going to have the opportunity to review it!
- Encourages children to practice word building as they combine beginning letters and blends with word families
- Challenges children with three skill levels
- Features handheld size, simple operation, immediate feedback and volume control
- Measures 5"L x 4"H
- Requires 3 AA batteries, not included
- Grades K+
When the product arrived, Kaelyn was thrilled when I told her what it was. Out of the package, I put the batteries in (which are not included) and read through the instructions. I was thankful for the user guide, but it is pretty simple to use and could have probably figured it out on my own as well. This is something I appreciate, as I wanted it to be easy and fun to use since Kaelyn is the one using it.
To get started, we pressed the power button to turn it on. We then found the selector switch and selected a skill level. There are three, level 1, 2 and 3. Level one works on beginning letter sound with 2 letter word families. Level 2 works on beginning letter sounds and 3 letter word families. Level 3 works on blends combined with 2 and 3 letter word families.
