Early Childhood Education: Teaching Children Classification Skills with Fun Games from Super Duper Publications

There are numerous skills that children need to be taught at a young age that will help them throughout their entire lives and classification is one of them. It's usually something that is taught starting in preschool and children will continue to improve on these skills throughout their school years. It can be difficult to teach younger children these types of skills but if you can make it fun, kids will love learning it and they won't even realize they are learning! We are super huge fans of Super Duper Publications because they offer really great educational games that make learning fun. We recently received two really great products that help with classification, vocabulary, critical thinking and fine motor skills. The first product we received was Lids 'n Lizards.  This is an awesome game that you can adapt to play with just about any age. It comes with 50 magnets that have different objects on them. You place one of the magnets under each of the lids and then hide the lizards underneath random lids. The kids have to pick up the lids one at a time and state which category the object is in. The object is to see how many lizards you can collect and my kids loved that part! I switched it up and hid multiple lizards under one lid so there was one "jackpot" lid and the kids really liked that. Learning should be fun and this is a great way to do that.


The second game we received was the MagneTalk Early Classifying magnetic board game. The board is divided into 5 different categories including transportation, animals, around the house, clothing and food. The object is for the child to place each of the 35 magnets into the correct category.  Recommended for Pre-K and up, our soon-to-be preschooler absolutely LOVES this game. He literally plays it for hours and hours. I was amazed how quickly he caught on to what he was supposed to do. 


He is so proud when he gets all of the magnets onto the board in the right categories.  This is an amazing game to teach young children categorization. The game comes with a nice plastic tote that fastens shut so my 3 year old can keep all of the pieces together for the next time he wants to play. He has a teacher that comes here once a week for an hour and she works with him on speech and early childhood skills and he told me today that he can't wait for his teacher to come this week so he can show her his new game. So sweet! 


These games are both great for early childhood learning and you will not be disappointed in the high quality product you get when you invest in a product from Super Duper Publications. I could literally browse their website for hours and I have found hundreds of products I would love to have on our game shelf. These are amazing games and activities that your child will want to do again and again, providing hours of educational fun. As a Mom, I could not ask for much more than that.
