I always love when we can incorporate fun and learning in the same activity. Each child learns differently and the trick is figuring out which kind of learner they are (i.e. auditory, kinistetic, visual or needs help with a learning disability) and incorporate it into a fun activity. I recently learned about Super Duper Publications and all the wonderful learning games they have available that do just that.
“For children who may need a little support when it comes to social skills, reading, math, spelling andcritical thinking, a few lessons via a game can have a huge impact. Super Duper is already a hit in many classrooms from public schools to homeschoolers.”
We have been having a lot of fun with their Yogarilla Cards. It’s a deck of 55+ colorful, oversized cards with a different yoga poses on each one all demonstrated by a gorilla! The gorilla just seems to make it more fun. On the back of each card is a step by step list on how to achieve the pose, which is helpful for me so I can help the kids do it right. The kids love to just look at the card and see if they can do it. Also on the back of each card are variations and suggested activities for the pose (i.e. pretend you are an alligator). On the instructions cards they have suggested routines to practice fine and gross motor skills, communication, sensory processing, attention and cognition.
I put together the cards for one of the routines that focused on breathing and rhythms and did it with my son and daughter before bed a couple nights. Not only did I get a nice relaxing mini workout and some fun time with my kiddos, but my daughter who is a late night busy owl jumped right into bed and went to sleep when we finished. I can’t claim that will happen for everyone, but it sure is a nice perk from our yoga workout.
Super Duper Publications has a ton of fun learning activities that I would love to get my hands on (i.e. Jeepers Creepers and any of their Fun Packs). They even have learning games available for your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch (and some are free).
