Aren't learning styles interesting? I'm a visual learner myself. Draw me a map, show me a picture, let me read it for myself... I'll remember it. My older daughter is an auditory learner. She retains information best by hearing it. I'm not sure how to define my younger daughter's learning style, but she requires lots of repetition and drill to remember things. Of course, rote drill can quickly become boring and tedious, so I'm always looking for interesting ways to review information she has learned.
We have found the Super Star Games from Super Star Speech to be great for history, science, and even language arts review! We started with Road to Revolution. It was simple to print out and put together in a file folder, and the game questions were perfect for reviewing what she had learned about the Revolutionary War. We also tried the Silly Snail game for reviewing parts of speech, Planets, Moon, and Stars to go along with our astronomy study, Covering the Continents for world geography, Colony Quest about the American colonies, and All About Animals for animal classification. There are several others available as well. I thought the different games might all be a simple "follow the path" format, which would have been okay, but they aren't. Each game has a unique format which helps to keep it interesting. Most of the games are appropriate for upper elementary or middle school students. They are available as instant downloads for $3.50 each.
Super Star Speech also offers materials for "do-it-yourself" speech therapy.They were written to help parents do “speech therapy” with their own children. They focus on the correction of articulation errors and are appropriate for any child age three and up who has speech sound errors.
