Text Box: Teachers Are Unanimous in Praise of WordsUp!
BALTIMORE, MD — WordsUp! Learning comes out smelling like roses after receiving high marks from a panel of teachers evaluating its sight words learning system.
As part of Learning® Magazine’s annual review of educational products that extend classroom learning into the home, three teams of teachers reviewed the WordsUp! game and were unanimous in their praise for the game.   Here are some of their comments below:
“I think it is great!  The organization and directions are well thought out.”
“I liked that children are playing a game and learning at the same time.  I also like the fact that you can tailor it to the needs of the individual.”
“I love the laminated cards and the game ideas.”
“It’s fun and easy to play and keep organized.”
“I like that WordsUp! provides children an interactive and fun way to practice high frequency sight words.  Flashcards can be so boring.”
“My son enjoyed the games that coincided with the sight words.  It was great review for him.”
“WordsUp! is a creative way for children to practice sight words.  It puts a fun spin on flashcards.  Children are eager and motivated to practice skills in a game format.”
Not just a game, it’s a Learning System 
“WordsUp! teaches sight words and helps to build reading fluency.”
“WordsUp! can teach children sight word recognition and fluency.”  
“In a game format, it also teaches children to work cooperatively with others.”
“This product helps children to master their sight words.”
“WordsUp! provides a unique and fun way for children to practice words independently or with family members.”
Recommended by Teachers
“I would recommend WordsUp! to parents.  It can be used with a variety of levels which makes it great for families with multi-age children.”
“I would recommend WordsUp! to parents.  Children need to practice sight words at home to reinforce skills being taught at school.”
Teachers’ Suggestions for Improvements
“I don’t see any improvements that need to be made.”
“I would recommend including more than two additional game boards so that more than three children could play at a time.  With five different levels/sets of cards, up to 5 or 6 children could play—independently or in small groups of 2 or 3.”
