Every language arts program needs some FUN in its FUNdamentals. And since skills are often taught better and quicker through games, successful learning takes place with our FUNdamental Language Arts Games Supplement (F.L.A.G.S.)
An effective supplement for any language arts program, F.L.A.G.S. contains ALL of the PRACTICAL teaching games you would have made if:
you had the time
and you knew which skills your child needed to learn in pre-K through 4th grade (and higher).
37 durable game boards, bound into a convenient book, arranged according to levels of difficulty (easiest to hardest).
A 46 page Parent’s Manual with easy-to-read directions, tips, 150 game variations, and word lists - for FUN & flexibility.
500 flash cards which double as Bingo cards (for alphabet and vocabulary). Use them to make your own games for those non-phonetic “stumpers” (nearly 1/3 of the English language is not phonetic!) or tricky homonyms/homophemes (words that sound alike but have different spellings and meanings).
18 Roll-A-Word phonics cubes which aid in spelling, sound blending, reading syllables, and vocabulary development (simple cut and tape assembly required).
Spelling Squares to help break down and build hundreds of multi-syllable words using prefixes, roots and suffixes. Some cutting required.
many ways to teach complex skills using simple vocabulary
Since not all words are phonetic, (and not every child is an immediate “phonics success story”) simple sight and phonetic words are combined into Bingo games. F.L.A.G.S. Bingo gives your child an opportunity to practice many words of a specific length or difficulty. Having problems with a few words? Make your own individualized games with the provided 500 flash cards and game construction cards (Start, Win, Lose 1 Turn, etc.). Another sample of an "around-the-board" style game is included.
