Learning Resources "Double Duel A Sound-Alike Word Game Review/Giveaway

There are so many things that are hard on little ones as they are learning how to read and write. I mean there are so many words that sound a like but mean different things. Like the words, deer or dear, too to or two, are or our well you get the idea. With little ones it is hard and can be a little annoying trying to explain over and over, that the words sound the same but mean and spell differently. It gets really bad when they have spelling tests in school and, during the test sometimes they have the words that sound the same. It can get tricky. So, when I had the chance to do another review for Learning Resources I was really happy when I seen the Double Duel A Sound-Alike Word Game. I mean I knew with my little girl being in the 2nd grade this was going to be prefect. Plus, the game seemed really fun.

Double Duel A Sound-Alike Word Game $27.99: This is great for ages 7+ grades 2nd+ and this can be played with 2 -4 players. It’s a drink. A golf ball sits on it. What’s the answer? Tea/tee! High-speed homophone game requires sharp listening and vocabulary skills. Engages players with buzzers that each make a different sound: honk honk, boxing bell, doorbell and boing. Supports students with color-coded question cards offering 2 levels of differentiation.


When we first got the game I knew right away upon taking the buzzer's out of the box my little girl was going to love this game. I mean what kid don't want to make ton's of noise when playing a game. The game offers two different levels which is really nice to chance up the game. It is so funny to hear all the different sounds from each buzzer. Having each buzzer make different noises make it much easier to tell who pushed the button first. With 200 double sided cards the game really goes over a lot of different words. 


My little girl had a blast playing the game with hubby and me. We would sit in the floor and of course we let Dominique hit the buzzer first most of the time. That way she would have the chance to answer the questions the most. I was really happy to see her thinking and really interacting with the game. This really helps them in understanding the same words but at the same time different words. I can really tell a difference when she is reading and writing sentences. This is such a great game for kids in school trying to learn about the words that sound the same.
You can Purchase: Right from their website and prices will vary depending on what you will purchase. You can also purchase on Amazon .
