Looking for an educational game? My Fab Fit Forties says the You’ve been Sentenced! word game “gets the wheels turning!”
My Fab Fit Forties is a great site for anyone who wants to embracea healthier lifestyle for mind and body. Recently, site editor Gigi reviewed the You’ve been Sentenced! word game as an opportunity to maintain brain health. Here’s a little of what she had to say:
“It’s actually a very educational game no matter what your age is. If you haven’t been in school for a while, it will all come flooding back to you as you put your sentence together properly! If you’ve got kids who are at the age where they’re learning this, it can really help them not only absorb what they’re learning even more, but you’ll find that they can actually teachyou– especially when they’re on the jury and explaining why your sentence doesn’t work!
While the game is meant for ages 8+, we actually played it with my nephew who is 5. It’s great for not only helping them with reading, but for also helping them recognize “hey, that doesn’t make any sense!!” when you come up with silly sentences….it’s a perfect chance to say “well, what would work better?” and really get the wheels turning in their minds as they try
My husband has actually brought “You’ve Been Sentenced” to school and will be using it with his students and at the after-school games club.”
