Some kids’ board games touted as “educational” are so focused on the learning aspects that they’ve sucked all the fun out of the game. But not Word on the Street Junior.
Even though the game is marketed as educational for kids with many teachers using it in their classrooms, adults find that they enjoy this game just as much as the kids do! If you enjoy word games like Scrabble or Boggle but your child isn’t yet ready for those games, you need Word on the Street Junior.
This game is like tug-of-war – but with letters. On your team’s turn, you get a prompt like “something with a shell” and you have to think of a word that fits that prompt, like “snail.” Then you get to move all the letters in your word one lane closer to your side of the “street” board. The first team to move eight letters all the way off the board wins.
Pro tip: When playing with a child who’s still learning how to spell various words, many families find it helpful to play with a small dry-erase board or scratch paper. After the child comes up with a word on their turn, you can help them spell it on the board or paper. Not only will that help them complete their turn, they’ll get some bonus spelling and handwriting practice.
Note: The manufacturer says this is for ages 7 and up, but according to several other families (including mine!) many 6-year-olds are ready for this game. The game instructions include variations for playing with younger kids, plus because you play on teams, you can pair up younger kids with an adult or older sibling.
