5.0 out of 5 stars An engaging learning game, 23 Oct. 2001
This review is from: Phonics (Cards)
The title is a bit of a misnomer - these are really "Gamecards" (as indeed it says on the box). They are divided into sets of six colour coded cards each, with increasing levels of difficulty. Each set is put face down, and the child is asked to start by overturning the one that says "START" - all others have words written on them. The START card has a picture of say a boat and then the child looks for a card amoung the rest of the 5 that has a word rhyming with boat. That card is overturned and it reveals another clue and so on.
The sets increase in levels of difficulty in that the first two sets have short vowel sounds; the second two have consonant blends and the last two have long vowel sounds. One of the ideas behind flash cards is recognition of words that are otherwise difficult to explain with logic to a child and this set works quite well.
My 4 year old had little difficulty with the first two sets and some difficulty with the last one. However, the principal attraction of these cards is the element of a game. My child wanted to play it over and over again, with the result that word recognition was achieved with the child himself pushing to do it! Most people with a 4 year old at home will know that they really want to play games with cards that they see adults playing and this was just fantastic. I wish there were more of these around!
