The Preschool Pop Game Bundle is a set of four games that are different yet similar. Each game has a different learning objective using colors, shapes, counting, and rhyming, using the same rules. The four games come in their own separate container. Each container is filled with 80 cardboard pieces relating to the game subject, and some of the pieces have the word Pop on them, Each player takes a turn spinning the spinner, and the number they land on is the amount of pieces they will pick from the canister. After identifying the picture on each card, they will put them in their own pile. If a player picks the cardboard piece with the word After identifying the picture on each card, they will put them in their own pile. If a player picks the cardboard piece with the word Pop they lose all the cards they have collected. The player who collects the most cards at the end of the game wins. All the games are simple and fun.
Each game has the same rules, although they are learning something different with each game. Dylan loves the rhyming game. It comes in it's own container filled with 80 tough cardboard pieces, each has a picture on it. When it is your turn, you spin the spinner and pull one, two, or three of the pieces out of the container. The object is to say a word that rhymes with the picture. Say for example the picture was a snake, the answer could be rake, cake, bake, stake. It is very quick, therefore, fun and it keeps him interested while he is learning. If a player draws a POP card they must return all their pieces. Dylan pretends to smack his forehead if he draws one of the POP cards but finds it hilarious if one of us draws it! Each game is easy and makes it easy to learn while playing. We play that the person who reaches ten pieces first is the winner. It can also be played that the person with the most pieces when the container becomes empty is the winner. Kayla was very excited to see that one of our new games, the rhyming game, is the same game as was in her classroom last year!
