I just love educational games and Orchard Toys have been my favourite brand for games for this very reason.
We were offered a brand new educational game called Magic Spelling.
The game is recommended for children aged 5-7, so Lily is a little young for this game yet. But I was so impressed with the learning experience that comes with it that I just had to review it and let everyone know about it.
In the box there is -
- 4 spell book boards
- 20 spell ingredients cards
- 36 word cards
- 36 letter tiles
- 1 magic wand
- 1 sand timer
- 1 cauldron spinner
- 1 instruction leaflet
As usual the play pieces are all so colourful and child friendly. So inviting for a child to want to come and play with them.
The timer is then turned over and the race is on to find the letter on the letter cards. But it isn't as simple as that, you must look through the magic wand to make all the letter appear on the cards. As you find each letter you turn it over in front of you.
If you were wrong, or you didn't manage to find all the letters in time, then send your letters straight back to the table face down.
As I mentioned above, I decided to simplify the game for Lily's learning level and make it so she was only finding the first letter of each word. This is going to be a great game for her to be able to learn those letters seen as she isn't at the spelling stage yet. Lily doesn't know all her letters but she is starting to learn some and she loved using the magic wand to find them. She got the concept of the game really easily, so an older child would easily be able to understand and enjoy playing this game.
The game is perfect for letter and word recognition, developing word building skills, promoting language and literacy and also encouraging observation.
Overall it is such a fun game that is going to be a great aid when it comes to learning to spell.
This game is £12.75 to buy and can be bought from the Orchard Toys Website.
Would your child enjoy this game?
Looks a great gameReplyDelete
Certainly would loads of funReplyDelete
Spelling being a building block towards word recognition, and reading. Reading / literacy opens up a great opportunity for learning. Seems letting Lily try out the game (adjusted by yourself to be appropriate for her age, and developmental stage) was a good idea, nice to make learning fun.ReplyDelete
Such a great brand/game xReplyDelete

I am a huge fan of orchard toys, firstly because they are local to me in Norfolk. But also because of how great they are at helping little ones learn whilst having fun, and they are great first family board games.ReplyDelete

This sounds perfect for my Megan, she is 6 and when we had parents evening her teacher said she is ahead for her age on spelling and reading so I want to keep her doing well and not getting bored xxReplyDelete
Sounds like a good idea to make learning fun but oh my, that's a lot of pieces to try not to lose!ReplyDelete
This sounds like a fun game to learn the alphabet and spelling. My granddaughter is slightly younger than Lily, but already recognises some letters so would be able to play the modified game you played with Lily.ReplyDelete
This looks like a good educational game which kids would enjoy.ReplyDelete
