TOS Review: The Reading Game

We are a gaming family and I am always more excited when the games are educational.

The Reading Game is and educational game created by the author of Wordly Wise that retails for $24.95. The game has six very nicely illustrated story books with different animal themes that get progressively more difficult. On each level you have a set of six cards. Each set is laid out and played as a memory game, matching the two like words. As the words are matched you read the word several times with your child. After the entire set is matched you repeat until your child has a grasp of the words. After the child completes all 6 sets, s/he can proceed to the book and will be able to read! After all 6 books are completed your child will know 180 words.

The age range for this game is 4+, but obviously it would depend on how ready your child is to read and how well they are already reading. My 3 year old loved matching the numbers on the backs but wasn't remotely interested in even attempting the game, and my 7 year old already reads above level so the game wasn't challenging and she found it boring. However, it was about right for my 6 year old and she loved playing it! Accomplishment really does alot of encouraging and she was over the moon when she read the story about the unicorn.

There are two things about it that concerns me. It takes a whole word reading approach. I am a big believer in phonics. That said, I just simply had her sound things out rather than having her memorize (about half of the words are high frequency which we do memorize). It takes longer to do it this way, but for us it is important that they get the phonics. The second thing is that it is only for 2 players so if you have multiple kids be prepared to have to take turns. If you have olders they can play "tutor" to a younger child.

Other than that we really enjoyed this game! Here is the pertinent information:
Name: The Reading Game

Price: $24.95

Age: 4+

Be sure to check out my fellow crew members takes on The Reading Game!

I was given a copy of The Reading Game for free in exchange for an honest review. Please review my disclosure policy.

We will be posting lots of great Christmas deals over the next few weeks. Be aware that these posts will often contain affiliate links. The deals may also be what are known as "lightning deals" and may only be available for a short period. We are not responsible for any changes of price while these deals are going on. If you see a good deal you want, it is probably best to snag it while it's still there! Also, because there are so many deals, alot of them will be posted seperately. I know it can get a bit overwhelming to have that many new posts popping up, but in general it makes it easier to read. I promise that the frequent deal posts only last for a few weeks before Christmas! Have fun shopping!

Puppy Chow for People!

I am having "one of those days." You know the kind that sends you running to the kitchen in high hopes of finding something that resembles chocolate? I went to Walmart yesterday and picked up some things I don't normally have, white sugar, sugary cereal, etc... I decided that I would make some puppy chow for Thanksgiving. Contrary to what Anna thought, this is not dog food. :) It is super little bits of heaven that start by melting in your mouth, then when you bite down, chocolate assaults you in the most fabulous way! This is my own recipe, as I wanted to use golden graham cereal and more chocolate! This makes a ton and is appropriate for breakfast....

Start with 1/2 cup peanut butter, 1/4 cup of butter, 1 bag of chocolate chips. Melt them over low heat in a large pot.

Add 10 cups of Golden Graham cereal.  I used the off brand :)
Stir very gently, but thoroughly to coat.
Dump in 3 cups of powdered sugar.  Stir very gently and make sure the cereal is coated completely in sugar.
This is the finished product. SOOOOO GOOOD!
This is what happens when you set it on the table and turn your back for half a second.
So, to give you a quick recap:

1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup butter
1 bag semi sweet chocolate chips
10 cups of golden grahams cereral
3 cups of powdered sugar

Melt together peanut butter, butter, chocolate chips in a large pot on low heat.  Add cereal. Stir to coat. Take off heat.  Add powdered sugar. Stir to coat. Serve. So Yummy!
