See It and Sign It Game Review & GIVEWAY!

I have another wonderful product from PlayAbility to tell you about.  I can remember being interested in sign language when I was a child.  My cousin and I used to talk to each other using the sign language alphabet and no one even knew what we were saying, we thought we were soo- cool!  I still to this day remember the alphabet!   More important than being cool, knowing sign language is a wonderful skill to have, whether you know someone that is deaf or not.  Enter the See It and Sign It Game.

  
In this game the kids think they are just having a good old time yet they are actually learning a second language.  We parents, especially the homeschooling kind, are always on the hunt for things that are fun and educational.  We all know that things seem to "stick" better when the kids are really enjoying what it is they learning.  My kids already remember many of the signs that they learned just in the short amount of time that we have had this game.  Very impressive!

Each time we have played this game, the kids have really had a great time!  First, you start off by watching a video that shows you how to sign the alphabet, numbers and 60 different words.  After watching the video you are ready to play the game.  The game is geared for kids 7 and up but everyone has played, except for Little Bits.  We even had The Hubs playing it with us!



The girls were playing together one day and the Lil' Chef took these pictures.

There are 6 different games that vary in difficulty and it can be play alone or with a group.  The games seem to each last about 15-20.  There is a easy 3 card version and a harder 6 card version that you can choose between depending on the age of your children and the amount of time you want to play.

The things I love about this game:
  •  I LOVE how they have handy dandy flashcards on a RING for you to use during the game if you run into trouble and need some extra help. 
  • The kids love the red decoder that they get to use to check to see if they picked the right card or not.  They think it's cool and all "spy like."
  • The game is fun, even for adults. 
  • It's big time educational!!
  • I love how the game doesn't get old because there are several ways to play.

So, who wants their very own See It and Sign It Game of their very own??  PlayAbiltiy has offered to give away a See It and Sign It Game to ONE of YOU!  The GIVEAWAY will run until October 16th.  Please leave a SEPARATE COMMENT for each way that you enter and DO NOT FORGET YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS!  Here are the ways that you can enter:

This is so kind of you to give us this opportunity!! I am a follower, and learned about you through the Homeschoolers Blogger Haven. I do volunteer work for the deaf community each month. I also teach ASL classes. Here is a post about one of my classes:

http://www.jacquelinegraham.com/2008/06/what-im-up-to-creating-sign-language.html

I taught lessons there 2 hours every week free of charge for a year. It was dedicated to those that wanted to learn but could not afford to take lessons.

Purchasing books, creating worksheets, and buying games for classes is very expensive. A lot of times, to save money.....I buy materials and make games by hand. Your giveaway would give me a bit of a financial break. :-)

Thank you again for the opportunity! This will be a true blessing to anyone that wins it.

Kelly said...

I forgot to say in my initial comment that I have been teaching my children sign language since birth. I've used sign language for years in churches as an interpreter during the song parts of church. My children all still do signs, but the older ones don't do it as much, so this would help cement it in their brains.
