Word Joggers® Junior

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.

    I LOVE this game! I love the versatility, the many skills and age levels that are targeted with this game. It is simple enough for preschoolers, yet exciting enough for my upper elementary kiddos.

    This a fast way to practice picture naming, category naming and sorting. The pictures are engaging and the kids like to use them. I was disappointed they did not fit in my Cariboo game because they are too thick.

    These cards are great for building vocabulary or describing skills. I used them in various games. Recently, as suggested by one of my co-workers, I used it together with Cariboo. The cards fit in the slots where the Cariboo cards usually go. The kids love it.

    This game is very versatile which makes it great for several age groups. The game boards and cards are durable and brightly colored! There are MANY cards for each category so playing with multiple children or the same child over a series of sessions is not boring for them or for you!

    I have used this game with a variety of kids so far, and even with some older students who just need help with vocabulary. The game component is not that interesting, but the cue cards can be easily used with other games. Some of the directions could be spelled out a little more. The comparison one always says "compare this item with another item" and is not very specific.

    The kids LOVE the sneakers idea on the backs of the word cards as motivation to learn the words. I myself have found that the students enjoy the variety of questions (riddles, etc.) Great job!

    Bought this kit for vocabulary development for preschoolers/kindergarteners with language delay. I was pleasantly surprised that most of the kids know the vocabulary in this kit. The few children who don't struggle with the symbolism of the photos and need real photos.

    This is an excellent resource for working with young students with word finding problems. I especially like giving a clue while the student is looking at a set of picture cards to see if they can identify the correct picture and whether they can name it. If they cannot name the picture, it's a great opportunity to offer a variety of cues to see what helps the most, e.g., it starts like this, or it's something you do this with, etc.
