The children that I am seeing for speech and language therapy right now are too young for this game….however….I did want to tell you that I LOVE Hedbanz. It is great for working on answering and asking WH questions. The cartoon pictures on the headband are separated in three categories: animal, food or man-made object. So not only does it address WH questions. It also is great for working on categories.
When I work with older children…specifically the girl, Lauren, that I have dedicated one of my pages to….we work on the ability to indicate the category the object belongs in….so if Lauren and I were working together…and I gave her the word: BANANA….I would want her to be able to tell me the category and at least two attributes (characteristics)….so it would look something like this:
A banana is a fruit….it is yellow and you peel the skin.
Hedbanz really helps children with answering and answering WH questions…and also helps children to categorize objects….and also teaches them to use describing words (attributes) about the objects.
Have fun this is a great toy!
