The word is on the tip of my tongue! When a word-finding—or word-retrieval—problem affects a child’s daily communication, it also impacts academics, social interaction, and self-esteem. For young students struggling to find the right word, Word Joggers Junior offers early intervention and helpful strategies for “jogging” their memories.
This follow-up to Elaine Krassowski’s popular Word Joggers game includes 200 color-coded Prompt Cards (5" x 3"), with exercises that address five categories relevant to a child’s daily life (Animals, Food, Household Objects, School Stuff, and Toys). Prompts include Riddles, Associations, Phonemic Awareness, Categorizing, and Same & Different.
Each word also appears on an illustrated Picture Card (2" x 2") that provides a visual cue for the student. When you read one of the five prompts on a card, the student responds by finding the appropriate picture card and saying the word for the picture. The first player to fill his/her Game Board with sneaker cards wins the game.
