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

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.

I received this product for a review and felt it was too difficult for my preK children. The children need to be able to read to play this game.

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

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.

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

    The 3 and 4 year olds in my class love playing board games! This is not a game that can be set out for the children to play by themselves (at this age) but playing in small groups with the teacher is perfect. Position words and actions are necessary for social development but since its in game form it's fun! When we say, "Can you line up behind Joe?" Behind is a hard concept. When the child picks up a Bee and spins the spinner and it says Behind, "Put the Bee Behind the Tree" is a concept they can grasp rather quickly. The rhyming words and different levels of play for different age groups is excellent.

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

        My students were very creative and sometimes a little silly while doing the positional words. They were really having a good time as I read the cards to them and they placed their items in the appropriate places. The cards and the props are sturdy and can withstand multiple uses. The props are also very colorful and attractive. The small picture cards can also be used for initial sounds. They can name the item, and tell what letter it starts with. This is a great set to teach positional words and I would recommend it to everyone. This set was given to me as part of an incentivized review program.

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

        I love the idea of this product. It is very versatile (rhyming, position words, reading skills). The colors are bright and appealing. I like that the cards are color coded. I wish the pieces used were plastic and not cardboard pictures. This would have made the game more appealing to my students and more durable. Younger children need to play this with an adult or person who can read the position words. This would be something I would take out to use one on one with a student or in a small group. I received this item as part of an incentive review program.

        Nice addition to a teacher/SLP/parent's aresenal to teach spatial/prepositional concepts and rhyming. But it would have been better if the pictured items were real manipulatives instead. Not that fun to place little pictures.
