GUESS WHO? Game
Approx. Retail: $ 16.99
AGES: 6 & Up
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.
