Super Star Speech {Review}

image

When we were first asked to review for Super Star Speech, I wasn’t quite sure how I would be able to write a review. There aren’t any major issues with any of our children’s speech ~ and trust me, after working with children who have had speech problems I know how difficult that can be for teachers and parents.

The primary focus of the Super Star Speech site is focused on giving parents the tools needed to help improve their child’s speech at home. They offer a book called Super Star Speech: Speech Therapy Made Simple, a 90 page resource that includes the following:

· Articulation test assesses speech sounds in all word positions.
· Specific instructions and tips for teaching every sound
· 240  picture cards printed on colored card stock (ring bound edition)
· Games and activities for enjoyable practice and drill
· Reproducible lesson plan forms

In addition to speech products, they do offer additional homeschool games and resources. Super Star Games are inexpensive pdf downloads {$3.50 each} that help reinforce subjects that you are teaching at home: grammar, history, geography, science, and more.

We were given four pdf games to try together: Covering the Continents, Silly Snail, Colony Quest, and the Inventors Game.

Covering the Continents ~ players decide which continent a fact describes. If they are correct, they can place a marker on that continent. Once they earn three markers for a continent, it is considered ‘settled’.

Silly Snail  ~ a parts of speech game where players tell what part of speech is bolded in a sentence. If answered correctly the player moves along the game board to that part of speech.

Colony Quest ~ similar to the Covering the Continents game, but players learn facts about the 13 colonies and race to ‘settle’ them

The Inventors Game ~ players learn about major inventions from the 1400’s up to the 1900’s and who was responsible for the invention. The game can be played as a matching game or as a timeline game.

Our two favorites were Covering the Continents and Silly Snail, mainly because they both cover topics we are doing a lot with right now: geography and grammar. :)

  • O neat! The Blog was very helpful. She gave normal speech habits of toddlers and abnormal habits. There was also a post about what sounds can be accomplished at certain ages... I have been wondering about that tricky "r" sound.... :-)
    THANKS for your review!!
