New Educational Blue Orange Spot it! Games

First let me say that my kids really love these games. In a world of technology and great gaming animation effects, which my kids also enjoy, this pleasantly surprised me that they took to a card game with such enthusiasm. It truly is more fun to learn when you’re having fun learning.  Blue Orange Games just released new learning games. Spot it! For Schools now features:

  • Alphabet Numbers and Shapes
  • Basic English 
  • Spanish 
  • French 

I had the privilege of reviewing three of these game with my children thanks to the people at Blue Orange Games who sent me the games in exchange for a review.

After receiving many requests from educators, Blue Orange developed games for teachers to use for early learning.  The games are designed for three to eight year old children, but teachers may find themselves playing them behind the scenes as well. According to a recent press release from Blue Orange:

The games develop visual perception skills, while exercising cognitive speed and reaction time in a fun atmosphere. As always, there is always one and only one match between any two cards. Spot it! Alphabet and Spot it! Numbers & Shapes help children build essential skills for preschool as they learn to identify letters, numbers, colors and shapes. In the Basic Language editions, players search for matches between universal words and their corresponding pictures. While the repetition solidifies sight word recognition and builds reading confidence, the pictures support reading comprehension.

All of the School Edition games will be available on September 15, 2012 at Basic Spanish and French will be available directly on from September 15, 2012.
