Educational Insights Review and Giveaway...


About Educational Insights:
"Educational Insights is a leading manufacturer of learning toys and innovative, hands-on educational materials for classrooms worldwide. For nearly 50 years, Educational Insights has been a trusted source for teachers and parents for quality, award-winning educational products in math, science, social studies, language, language arts, reading, early childhood, Spanish, ELL, ESL teaching and classroom management."


Educational Insights has offered up a great prize package for July including one of each of the following items:

Ring the Bell Electronic Goal Tracker
"Fun sounds and an exciting carnival theme take the goal chart to a whole new level! Teacher writes the goal and reward at the top and the milestones along the side of this freestanding electronic tracker. Each time a milestone is achieved, the “puck” slides up closer to the goal, activating fun sounds and blinking lights. When the goal is achieved, students are rewarded with a sound and light show.
Track anything:
-Books read
-Funds raised
-Perfect attendance
-Homework completed
-And more!"

Inside Out Lenticular Human Body Poster
"Don’t look away! A magical way to present the various layers of the human body, the Lenticular Human Body Poster shifts from two kids to their skeletal systems, muscular systems, and organs. You won’t believe your eyes!"


Batter Up! Whole-Class Game
"Perfect for spelling and vocabulary words, math facts, science content, and more!
This fun, reusable, whole-class game provides a quick and convenient alternative to a common classroom whiteboard game. Simply divide the class into two teams, write students’ names on the included write-on/wipe-off pieces, and ask any question. If the student answers correctly, he or she spins the dial to determine the “play.” The team with the highest score at the end of the game wins! A great way to practice any subject."
KaBAM!™
"The crazy-fast word building challenge! Ages 7-99
The fastest word-builders win this quick thinking, head-to-head word game. Two players or teams draw cards and set them down next to each other, face up. Each card features word parts including suffixes, prefixes, single vowels, consonants and dipthongs. Be the first to build a word by adding one or more letters to the sets of letters on the cards, and you can win the round."

What we thought:  What a great group of goodies from Educational Insights this month!  The Ring the Bell Electronic Goal Tracker has been a great tool for both 5 year old A and 2 year old D.  A has used it to track completion of her chores and D used it for successful trips to the potty.  It would be great for older kids for school work and chores.  The kids really loved the hands-on aspect of this goal tracker.
The Lenticular Human Body Poster found a home on D's bedroom door an he loves it!  I often find both A and D in front of the poster pointing out all they see.  This is a great tool for teaching them about how the body's systems work together.
The Batter Up Whole Class game was great for a "spelling bee" we hosted between B and A...she really loved the competition angle and it would be great for a classroom game.  I wish I had had one when I was teaching(or going to school for that matter!)
KaBam! was a great game to really get those little minds thinking.  A was a little young for the compound letter sounds, but she was great with the single letters.  This would be fun for most kiddos around 6 and up.
As always, the goodies we reviewed from Educational Insights this month did not disappoint.  These products always make learning fun and get the kiddos involved and excited about learning!  ABCD Diaries gives Educational Insights an A+!
Buy It: Find these awesome learning games and supplies at Educational Insights!

  93. I am so sorry if I am not doing this correctly. I am not computer-savvy in any way! They change so fast, my heads spins!
    Anyhoo, I had to enter to tell you that your product "Inside Out Lenticular Human Body Poster" is magnificent! My daughter is in medical school and she specializes in orthographic pediatrics.
    This is not just a perfect teaching to show the little ones what the inside of their body looks like; it is a wonderful reminder and reference to her in her studies. Definitely a WIN WIN!
    This is a fabulous teaching and learning tool! A rare find these days! You hit this one way out of the park! I am going to try to figure out how else to enter to win this wonderful poster, so please look for me again. Thank you for your generosity and for your addition to teaching the youth in our world! andbeanicsmom@cox.net
