August 12th, 2012 Deal of the Day

It’s Sunday August 10th, 2012 and it’s our last Deal of the Day of the summer! But like all good things, they must eventually come to an end. Today, we have decided to feature our Woodsy Words™ Game!

It’s Pick Up Sticks with a reading twist! Great for ages 5-8, Woodsy Words enhances reading skills with simple game play. Simply hold all the sticks in one hand and let them fall onto a flat surface. Select one stick – if you can extract it without moving any of the others, read the word printed on it and select another stick. Continue play until you bump another stick or get stuck on a word. The player with the most sticks at the end of the game wins! Put them back and start again or try to use all your words in a sentence!

This game can be played with 1 to 4 players and it includes 30 earth-friendly vocabulary words on wood sticks and game instructions.

Woodsy Words normally sells for $12.99, but today you can get it for only $7.99 until midnight PST. As an additional gift from us to you, type in EIFREE at checkout and enjoy Free shipping with this Deal of the Day Purchase!

Bridge the Gap: Fun Summer Reading Activities

Reading and writing is obviously critical for school success, and there are lots of fun ways that you can work with your children so that they retain what they’ve learned in those areas over the summer and maybe even get a head start on the next school year!

So read, read, read with your children. Your child can read in the car, read at the doctor’s office, at the dentist’s office, take a book to the park, there are lots of fun places where you can sort of change up the scenery and read with your child. Lots of libraries have wonderful summer reading programs that you can enjoy with your child.

When we think of reading with children, we mostly think about reading books and magazines, but there are lots of other opportunities to practice reading with your child by reading environmental print. Using it is great practice for kids and their reading skills. So, if you’re at the grocery store, pick up a cereal box and read the back. Some of them are really funny actually. When you’re at a restaurant, have your child read the menu and make their selection from it. When you’re in the car, read road signs. There are lots of fun places where you can sort of change up the scenery and read with your child.

I hope you get an opportunity in your summer to use some of these ideas. If you do or if you have other suggestions, please feel free to email me at Marcia@educationalinsights.com. I look forward to reading them!
