Learning Resources just released a brand new game line called Stacker Crackers, which somewhat mimics their Pop games. This line features four different learning games to build skills such as recognizing opposites, sight words, letter sounds, and more.
I am reviewing the Stacker Crackers™ – Sound Swap game today. My five year old daughter has benefited greatly from this game! We’ve discovered that she’s very hands-on with learning new things and responds extremely well if she’s playing games of any kind. If your child has a similar learning style, I think this game would be very good in enhancing and challenging reading and spelling skills!
If you don’t have a lot of space or even if you do, the compact size (Box measures 2.75″L x 2.75″W x 7″H.) of the Stacker Cracker game is great! The box is quite durable and the lid stays on without worry of it coming off and spilling the pieces everywhere. There’s also no trouble in misplacing the game instructions as they are printed right on the side of the game box!
How the game works is that a child will pull out one of the three letter word cheese or cracker card (90 are included). They will then attempt to create a new word only changing one of the letters either in the beginning, middle, or end. For instance, if you pull out a card that has the word CAT, you can than change that word to perhaps hat, cot, or cab. When the child correctly creates a new word they will place the card face down in front of them and begin to create a stack of crackers and cheese. If they pull out a SNACK ATTACK (10 are included) card they’ll have to put their stack back into the box and begin again. The player with the tallest stack at the end of the game wins!
This game is recommend for children ages 5 and up and could be played with a number of children. You could use the game one on one as I sometime do with my daughter to sharpen reading and spelling skills. My daughter really enjoys the game and gets pretty excited to see how high her stack can go! She often asks when she can play the game again, which is music to my ears because reading and spelling usually isn’t her favorite subject!
