Over the past 19 or so years I have had this game in my speech therapy bag….I have used the game so often that I frequently have to buy a new one.  I do not have Guess Who in my speech bag right now….but definetly need to buy the latest version.  The game indicates that it should be played with children 6 and up….however…with the little ones…(and I mean the three and four-year olds that I see)….it is a great game to work on answering and asking WH questions.

Play the original mystery face-guessing game and have hours of guessing fun! Eliminate the wrong faces to guess who’s on your opponent’s card! 2 players  

Each player starts the game with a board that includes cartoon images of 24 people and their first names. The game starts with each player selecting a card of their choice from a separate pile of cards containing the same 24 images. The object of the game is to be the first to determine which card one’s opponent has selected. Players alternate asking various yes or no question to eliminate candidates, such as:

“Does this person wear glasses?”  “Does this person have brown hair?”  “Is this person a boy?”……(Well-crafted questions allow players to eliminate one or more possible cards).

You can definitely find this game on Amazon: www.amazon.com  and also at www.hasbro.com.  The game says that it is for children 6 and up….however…I have played this game with the three and four-year old children that I see for therapy.  I do not have this game in my speech therapy bag anymore…basically because I played it so often….the game now needs to be replaced….in the meantime…there now is a new version of the game. 

Anyway…what I was going to say is that even though it is targeted for children 6 and up….I LOVED this game for the three and four-year olds that were learning how to ask WH questions…who, what, where, when, why and how.

This is a perfect game to teach your little one how to ask WH questions…and how to answer WH questions.

Definitely a game to add to the holiday list.

Have fun with your little one or big one.

About Kim

My name is Kim Marino and I have been practicing as a licensed speech and language pathologist since 1993. I work on Long Island providing diagnostic evaluations and services to children from birth to age 21. My experience is vast and am proud to say that I work with children that may present with articulation and phonological concerns, oral motor feeding concerns, Down Syndrome feeding, cognitive rehabilitation, auditory processing delays, receptive language delays, cleft palate feeding and sound development and expressive language delays. Most importantly, I am the mother of four amazing children and am happily married to my childhood sweetheart. I feel blessed to have my four children and so lucky to share this journey in life with my husband. I always had it somewhere in my head that I wanted to develop a blog or a website of some sort so that I could provide families with an additional resource....so that parents could help their little ones become a better communicator. And as I was developing this blog....I realized that I also needed to share the stories about my life and my children....and the funny things along the way that help to keep me smiling. Whether you are a working mother or not...finding balance between home, children and life can be a challenge....I hope that my blog helps to bring a smile to your face..and also some tools to help you help your little or big one. I hope you enjoy! Kim
