Learning Resources Smart Toss Math Sports Game ~ Review & Giveaway

Posted by Jenna | Monday, December 31, 2012



Winter can be a long season, especially when my kids get bored being cooped up in the house all day! For this reason, I try to have several games and activities on hand to do with them. It's even better when they're not only fun, but also incorporate learning! That's why I love Learning Resources and turn to them time and time again!


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 over 1300 products!

I love activities that get my kids active while having fun, that's why I knew they'd enjoy the Smart Toss Math Sports Game from Learning Resources and was excited we got to review it!
 
Features/Benefits:
  • Provides 4 different game designs—baseball, bowling, golf and basketball
  • Engages kinesthetic learners with high–interest sports theme
  • Includes 10 canvas bean bags measuring 3" in diameter—enough for small–group play
  • Features handy storage pockets, easy–carry handle, and durable, wipe–clean vinyl surface plus an Activity Guide
  • Stores easily, folding flat to 20"L x 18"H
When the product arrived, both Kaelyn and Kaden were excited to try it out. Upon opening the box, I found that it included 10 canvas bean bags and a board which provides 4 different game designs - baseball, bowling, golf and basketball.
I love how easily the board stores and folds so that we can keep it in the closet when not in use. It also features handy storage pockets, easy-carry handle (which is great for on the go) and durable, wipe clean vinyl surface!

Geared toward ages 5+, it's perfect for Kaelyn who is just starting to get the hang of simple math concepts. Kaden is a little young for the math part, but he enjoys getting active and refining those large motor skills. He also LOVES anything sports, so the sports theme makes it even more fun for him!
I appreciate that this game targets simple addition and subtraction skills. I am amazed how quickly Kaelyn has caught on. The baseball toss (addition) is probably our favorite because it's fun and the most age appropriate. First we find a distance for them to stand and toss the bean bags.
Each player chooses a bean bag color and tosses them into the pockets when it's they're turn. It's great practice and I love seeing their little eyes light up when they get one in the whole. Each time a bean bag misses the board or doesn't land in a pocket, it counts as an out. Once you have three outs (or you've tossed all five) your turn for the inning is over.



The addition comes in when we write the points down for that inning and then add them up. It's been great practice for Kaelyn writing her numbers as well as adding!

Overall I've been really pleased with this game. It's a lot of fun, and best of all it's something that will grow with my kids. I can see us having this for a very long time, and it being something that all three kids will enjoy using over the years. I would recommend the Smart Toss Math Sports game to parents with young children ages prek+.
