    This has a lot of cards! I am using it with my students with dyslexia. I used the cards with a blank game board that I had. The 8th grader & I both learned some things from these cards! They come in a sturdy box, & are easy to use.

    I bought the original Grannies Candies along with the other sets so that I would have different targets of language that I could draw from. The kids love playing it, so it's a great tool to have!

    I am always looking for new materials to use with my students when working on vocabulary skills, and these decks are perfect! I also like that I can use the similes, metaphors, and idioms decks with my students with Asperger's Syndrome who need extra practice with figurative language. These cards can be used on their own or with the Granny's Candies game, which my students love!

    My students are thrilled when they are able to participate in this activity. They participate willingly. I have noticed that students listen to answers provided by their speech-mates. They are then willing to expound on the answers.

    I love this game. I have the original and am now enjoying this add on. I have found that lots of my students have little to no understanding of figurative language. This gives them the practice they need.

    I'm so excited to purchase Granny's Candies for my private practice. My students loved it when I was an SLP in the schools. I like the skills we can work on with the cards, and there are a number of cards for each category.

    It was disappointing that the cards had no pictures-my students are very visual and needed them to comprehend.

    There is something about Granny's Candies that seems to appeal to a wide variety of students. This add-on set for vocabulary and figurative language is a great tool for all busy therapists. The great workbook and accompanying CD-Rom is great for follow up activites or homework assignments. This is a great addition to any therapist's tool box.

  18. Terrific Add-on Set
    Quality
    100%
    I purchased this add-on set to the Granny's Candies game in order to focus on more difficult concepts with the older children on my caseload. The set has a good mix of concepts: synonyms, opposites, homonyms, homophones, heteronyms, idioms, similes and metaphors. The set has 84 cards for each concept and the cards with in each concept appear to vary in difficulty as well. I am very pleased with the set. The only thing I would change would be to make the box a little bigger. While everything fits nicely when newly packaged, it is not so easy to pack back up when finished playing so that the box will close completely.
