Learing Resources Pop for Sight Words Games Bundle Review & Giveaway

I was provide the below mentioned product in exchange for my honest review.
<br><i>Gobble up almost 200 sight words!  </i>
     I can't believe that it is almost time for the school year to begin.  All the teachers returned to work yesterday for our Pre-service training.  I can't believe how fast the summer went.  I think it might have gone faster for me because I know that this year Jayden begins Kindergarten and I'm not ready.  Who is ever ready for their baby to transition into the next big step in their life?  But instead of sitting in the corner and crying about it (which is what I want to do) I have decided to to all I can to prepare Jayden.  I know in Kindergarten that sight words are a part of the curriculum.  Kindergartners are expected to know 100 sight words (I think that is how many) by the end of the year.  So if Jayden starts Kindergarten already knowing some sight words then he will have a little head start and better chance of meeting or exceeding the expectations for sight words.  So when I saw the Pop for Sight Words Games Bundle I was happy that Learning Resources was able to send me the bundle to try with Jayden. 

     Pop for Sight Words Games Bundle includes 2 games for learning early sight words.  Each game includes 100 cards with 92 different sight words and 8 POP cards.  That is a total of almost 200 words.  The instructions for the game are printed on the cute pop corn style box that holds the pieces.  This makes it easier so they don't get lost.  The instructions are simple.  Each player takes a piece of pop corn.  If the player can read the word they get to keep the card and if not then it gets placed in the un-popped pile.  If a player chooses the "POP" card then they have to put all their saved pieces back in the box.  The game continues until all the pop corn pieces are gone.


     Since Jayden didn't really know but maybe a couple of words before starting I changed the rules and he had to try to read the word and if he didn't know then he just needed to repeat the word.  And when we got a "POP" card we would place them aside instead of back in the box.  When you place them all back in the box the game can go on forever.  Jayden had fun playing and liked learning new words.  He liked getting the "POP" card.  You could also sort out the words and place the ones your child knows or is working on in school.  This can help to zero in on the continued learning from school.


     I really like these two games.  I feel like Jayden is starting to know some sight words and his Kindergarten teacher will be happy that he is already starting to recognize some.  The game is simple and easily adjusted to fit the needs of your child or children.  I think the game can also be added to by write a word on a white board or piece of paper and having your child search for that word in the popcorn words.  We will continue to practice using the Pop for Sight Words Games 1 & 2 throughout the year to support the learning in Kindergarten and on for 1st grade.  Learning Resources has so many great games and toys to enhance learning for all ages.
