We received Understanding Sentences to facilitate this review.
Homeschooling has taught me that if you make it fun, kids will sit down and pay attention while you teach them anything. Want them to learn Mandarin Chinese? No prob, just teach them in a way that they like, and they’ll be fluent in no time. Well, maybe. But, you know what I’m saying.
Super Duper Publications seems to have figured that out in spades. Everything that we have reviewed from them has hit the nail on the head when it comes to innovation and fun. For example, their Fun Decks are ingenious! The Fun Decks are cards in tons of different subjects and areas of learning. Because Super Duper only produces high quality products, the cards are full color on both sides and laminated so they will survive whatever you can throw at them. The Understanding Sentences Fun Deck has an added feature, though. It comes with a Super Duper Secret Decoder so students can see if they got the right answer themselves.
Understanding Sentences Fun Deck helps students improve their listening and reading comprehension by having them make meaningful connections between a sentence and a picture. Beginning with Set One (Cards 1–20), students look at the illustration (child throwing a stick to a dog) and listen to or read three sentences to find the sentence that describes the illustration (The dog is fetching a stick; The dog buries the stick; or The cat fetches a stick).After mastering this set, students move to Set Two (Cards 21–60). Here they read one sentence (The fish swims in the cool pond) and find the matching illustration from a choice of three pictures (duck in a pond, fish in a fish tank, or fish in a pond). Students check their answers using the Super Duper Secret Decoder.
