I love getting packages in the mail...
LOVE LOVE LOVE
and I was SUPER excited when
ETA contacted me and wanted to send me this fabulousness...
they sent me the starter kit and let me tell you I was EXCITED!!!
I pulled out one of the many books included in the kit
and started playing...
it took me a little while to get use to it... BUT
then I remembered they also told me to watch this video...
once I did I was good to go...
ha ha ha
and this Getting Started Page helped too LOL
I lined up my tiles in order at the top of the Versa Tiles board
you can see that there are letters at the bottom of the board... once you answer a question you will move your number tile on top of the corresponding letter space...
might sound confusing BUT
once you get the hang of it... it is SUPER EASY and fun
so I placed my number one tile on A
when you open it back up there is a pattern...
and this is what mine looked like...
see how under the the answer box (in the workbook) there is a small rectangle in the bottom left corner...
well that is where you compare your pattern with the correct pattern
it is SELF CHECKING
and my patten DOESN'T match...
that's right I got the wrong answers on 2 of them...
do you see that?
did I do that on purpose?
did Bub come in and play with the tiles?
or did I really miss it?
who knows I will never tell
maybe I did it for the sake of showing how it is a self checker....
Versa Tiles has several books to choose from
and all of them are GREAT
here they are...
let's SUM this up...
1- I found it to be brain stretching... I loved how I had to use different thinking to make sure the answers matched the tiles which went in a specific place... really made me stop and think
2- even though AT FIRST I was a little stumped at how to do it... after reading the REALLY EASY directions it became really easy... WATCH THE VIDEO and READ the DIRECTIONS
3- I like the self checking aspect... makes this an EXCELLENT center OR I am finished now what activity... I LIKE THAT
4- can be easily differentiated by using the scope and sequence included
5- it is more like a puzzle/game and it makes learning FUN
