The Testing Games: Can Teaching Kids to Be Opportunistic Reduce Standardized Test Anxiety?

So much fun contained in such a small box

Sharpen up visual perception and concentration, the fun is about to begin. Deal four cards to each player. Shapes, colors and numbers all come into play. Place one card in the middle and the game is on.

Each card features three attributes - color, shape and number. In turn, build off the center card by laying 2, 3 or 4 cards in a straight line. Each attribute must either be the same on each card, or different on each card. This forms a complete line.

Say the starting card is a green circle with one dot. Lay a yellow circle with two dots and a red circle with three beside it - all different colors, and different numbers, but all the same shape. Or lay next to the green card a red cross with one dot, a yellow triangle with one dot and a blue square with one dot - numbers are the same, shapes and colors are different.

Kids will put their mind into action and make sure their recognition skills are in tip-top shape. Wild cards add a twist of unexpected fun.

Look, see, play and score!

    Loved it!
    Posted 7/30/2014 by Jill L.

    I purchased for my 8 year old niece, a book/kit for making bracelets. She loved it and has made some really fun pieces of jewelry. I hope this will introduce her to the art of making adornments.

    I purchased this for use in a therapy setting. It has been very popular and I am going to buy a few more as my therapists are begging for them. It develops good visual memory, visual figure ground, subitizing, and addition. It would make a great stocking stuffer for Christmas.

    A Big Game In A Little Box
    Posted 6/29/2013 by Jane Sleeth

    Iota comes in a small package, making it easy to take just about anywhere. But don't be fooled by the size, this is a great game that affords children the opportunity to think strategically, enhance their skills in matching and pattern identification as well as offering the opportunity to practice math skills. I love this game - my daughter who is six finds it hard to sit through an entire game as it can take a while, but she really enjoys it and it is a game I can see us all enjoying as a family for years to come. I like that the requirements for pattern creation are a little more complex - making it more strategic and more fun than Qwirkle for example.
