There are a total of 20 blocks, 20 double-sided cards and two ways to play! There are many different ways to use this brian-boosting game that really makes you think!
* Teams: Divide students into teams and let them see the building card for a set amount of time. Remove the card and let them use teamwork and memory to build the set they remembering seeing. How fun is that?
*Just Build it: Younger children can just build what they see on the card. This worked GREAT for my 3 year old and she LOVES it! What I really love about the cards is that they range in difficulty from simple to more difficult building and listening skills. Although the recommended age is 5-13, it can easily be adapted to meet the needs of various ages.
*Listen and Build: In this game you will have one caller and 1-2 builders. The builder uses their listening skills to build what the caller is saying. The caller is using verbal skills to say what they want the builder to build! This actually meets Common Core Standards for listening skills! WOW! When kids can clearly convey their thoughts, they also become better writers!
Learning Resources has graciously offered a set to one of the Moffatt Girls readers!
