Of the games I would recommend to any teacher or parent who is interested in encouraging language learning, this would be top of the list. This is a creative, hands on, kinesthetic game that teaches prepositions; a difficult concept for most. Using a ball or small figure, I can use this durable toy to teach children as young as 2 early preposition concepts and following directions such as in, out, on and off. For 3-5 year olds, we can use the spinner to work on following and giving directions and learning more complex prepositions. Children need to use attentional and listening skills to find the correct objects (colorful pictures on, quarter-sized hefty cardboard discs). For children 5+ the activity cards are leveled by color and literacy skills can be practiced through understanding of the pictures on the easiest cards, basic sight reading of easy directions with color bolded prepositions, and more complex directions on the other three levels of cards.

In addition to using this game with young children, I found it tremendously useful for my friends and I who are learning Spanish. We used this game to work on giving directions in Spanish and understanding directions given in Spanish. I also used it with my teen and adult Sign language learners to work on giving prepositional instructions and descriptions in American Sign Language; it's harder than you think!

Overall, I have gotten tremendous use and enjoyment from this game across more ages and ability levels than I thought possible.

I really like the concept of this game and large pieces make it fun and interactive for students. I am writing this review because those purchasing it should be aware the directional cards of this game are challenging for most four and five years old. I purchases this to use during center time to increase student's positional vocabulary, for a group of Pre-K children, ranging from beginning readers to at-risk students. Though the student really enjoyed the game, unless the students can read positional words, they cannot play the game independent from an adult. There is both a limited number of picture cards and Rubik cards available for students. Rubik cards use words for positional direction, making it difficult for beginning readers. Picture cards can be miss interpreted by students. The rhyming words are not always correct, like box and clock or box and rock. I am not going to toss this game aside but will use it in a teacher directed center vs. an independent center.

      Comments about Learning Resources Fox In The Box Positional Words Activity Set:

      I received this game as part of an incentivised review program. I am a elementary teacher in Illinois. I think this game is great for peopkle looking for a cute game to have Pre K through first graders learn about positional words. The rhyming make the game a little silly and fun for these studnets. It is engaging and interactive as children place the picture cards on, in, over, below, etc. the colorful rhyming objects. The back of the box clearly and accurately depicts the contents of the box. I would recommend this product to teachers as part of a center and parents as part of a learning game at home.

        Comments about Learning Resources Fox In The Box Positional Words Activity Set:

        When you first open the box, you notice right away the tree, the box (with a lid!), the hat, and the chair. They're pretty big materials. With those items, you can match colors and rhyming words, and use prepositions to place little squares with pictures on them. Then there are activity cards and a spinner to also help guide you in your play with those manipulatives.

        At first, the directions were a bit overwhelming because of all the options, so our boys just played their own way, which worked great as well.

        The spinner is supposed to be double sided, but we couldn't get the arrow to detach from the one side so we could attach it to the other side. I looked for directions on how to change it on the website and couldn't find an answer. There's still lots to do without the other side of the spinner, but it would be nice to use it.

        Regardless, I know we'll come back to the fox in the box set again and again. And it all fits so well inside it's own box!

        Fun for reinforcing positional concepts

          Comments about Learning Resources Fox In The Box Positional Words Activity Set:

          When we received this game, my three older children played with it right away. While there are instructions included in the box, it's pretty self-explanatory once you look at the pieces (4 bright, plastic "rhyming" objects - a hat, chair, box, and tree; a spinner; small picture cards - bee, cat, stair, etc.; and activity cards). The game lends itself well to variations, which allows the children to be creative while playing. It's a simple concept: read the card and figure out which small picture card to place where in relation to which larger plastic item -or spin the spinner and select a small card and rhyming object to use. My children divide activity cards and take turns, then they spin the spinner for a new position. Sometimes, they just play with the cards and make up their own positions and rhymes "the cat is BEHIND my back!" They have fun with it, though my 9 y/o tends to tire of it relatively quickly. It's suggested for ages 4 and up, and my 4 y/o enjoys it the most; however, she needs someone to help her play, since the game requires some reading ability. She has found a helpful reader and playmate in her older sister, who at 7 is just young enough that she likes to share her ever-growing reading ability! It is good, fun reinforcement for positional words and concepts, and my four year old is learning to figure out and read some of the more repeated words.
          I enjoy playing the game and watching my children play, but I really wanted to love it more. The concept is fantastic, and the execution is well done, too; I am not sure what I would change to improve the game. Perhaps small plastic figures in lieu of the cardboard cards to show the positions, or even some kind of game board to keep track of scores to make it seem competitive? It is a fun game, and I would recommend it to parents or teachers of younger children (pre-k through 1st grade).
          I received this as part of an incentivized review program in exchange for my honest review.

            This game is so much fun. This game teaches you the different types of skills that can be used (spinner use, reading, rhyming) as well as the obvious intent of the game are helpful in developing multiple skills at differing age levels. Great for family time, or in a classroom!

              This set was given to me as part of a review program and I liked it. While it's a game that needs to be played with an adult or older child that can read, it was interactive, brightly colored, and seems durable (we have only had it a few weeks). The packaging holds the pieces nicely for storage. The different types of skills that can be used (spinner use, reading, rhyming) as well as the obvious intent of the game are helpful in developing multiple skills at differing age levels. I liked that it was 'easy enough' to play in one sitting without having to reference the directions for every little thing and has some level of creativity that can still be used to 'make it your own' based on needs.
