{Giveaway} Word Whiz

July 26, 2011

Get ready emerging Readers!

Meet the Word Whiz from Learning Resources:

With 3 separate levels, this little game is a handy way to make learning to read fun.

Level 1 is 3-letter words.  You choose the first letter to complete the word.

Level 2 is 4-letter words (no, not THAT kind!).  Again, you choose the first letter to complete the word.

Level 3 is what is pictured above.  You choose the first 2 letters to complete the word.

In all three levels, you create as many words as possible in 1 minute.

I like that this can be done quickly – just 1-minute increments make it pretty painless if your adorable puts up a fight.  Sometimes mine does, but otherwise he’s eager.

Here’s something else I just learned – there is a MUTE button!  Hooray!  Many of the places where this is perfect to tote along would much prefer to NOT hear techno beeps and jingles.  You just press and hold the power button to turn the sound off.  It’s a little touchy, as its the same button to turn the machine off.  But hooray for muting!

This little device is perfect for your adorables aged 5-8.

And you can win one!

    This is really cool. Both my kids would love this. I love the mute button. You are right, most of the time when we take gadgets out with us, we don’t want the sound on.
