Learning Resources Recordable Answer Buzzers Review & Giveaway

 I was provided the below mentioned products in order to provide a review. 
   
      Learning Resources has so many great new items this year that it was hard to pick which I'd like to try first.  I recently started a new job as some of you may know.  I am not a high school teacher.  I am teaching Early Childhood Education.  Even though my students are high schoolers, they still love to play games and have fun.  So in trying to help them prepare for a test I though making a fun jeopardy game would be fun.  Learning Resources has these fun new Recordable Answer Buzzers and I though they'd be fun for the game.

     I received the 4 pack of the recordable answer buzzers.  These buzzers are made with a different color base each.  You can record any sound, song, or saying you want up to 7 seconds.  It is simple to record, just press the button and hold it down while you play the sound and release.  Then the buzzer is ready to be used.  Just press the black button on top and the buzzer will sound.  These are really light weight and easy to use.
     Of course I have about 30 students in each class so I need more buzzers.  I grabbed the buzzers out of Jayden's Riddle Moo This game.  That way I had the 4 pre-recorded buzzers and the 4 recordable buzzers to use for a total of 8 teams.  The students were excited to use the buzzers.  They worked great for the game, except I was not able to keep up with which sound was first.  I will have to limit the teams so I have less to listen for next time.  It did take a bit to get the sounds loud enough for the buzzers.  I was finding sounds on my phone and holding it to the buzzer to record.  One problem we had was that when you press the little button on the side the sound will erase.  Of course many of my teenagers could not resist pressing it, even when I said not to.  That meant I had to stop and re-record the sound.  It would be nice to lock in the sound, I could imagine that it would be just as difficult or more so with preschoolers.  The pre-recorded buzzers were louder and did not have the possibility of the sound being erased.

     The Learning Resources Recordable Answer Buzzers were fun and helpful for our game.  The high schoolers loved them and I am sure preschoolers and all those in between would also like them.  Check out all the great new products for 2014 at Learning Resources.
