Enter Lakeshore Learning.
Lakeshore Learning has been around for more than 58 years, and is a company whose products are "designed with learning in mind." They have a huge selection games, activities and learning toys, all focused on making learning fun.
Looking around at their website, I really thought my kids would love the Phonemic Awareness Plinko Game. I love the idea of turning something she needs to practice into something that's fun to do.
Since Kik has loved making videos lately, I asked Kik to pretend that she was a teacher, and I was her student. Here is the result.
The girls think it is so fun to drop the Plinko chips. It has been great practice for the basic phonic rules Kik learned in Kindergarten, and Bid has gotten really good at rhyming. Her words aren't always real words... But she gets the concept.
To Buy - The Plinko game retails for $49.99 and is a great, fun tool for parents or teachers.
