Nigeria Nuggets for Home 2 Skool (H2S) Connections:

The Home 2 Skool (H2S) Connections: We know education continues in and out of school, we understand the importance of home support or home schooling and this crucial for a successful educational and developmental experience for our kids.

We should not leave educating our kids to our teachers alone, as a #teacher opens the door, but you must enter by yourself, C. June because you can take the horse to the river but you can not force it to drink. What are we as parents/guardians doing to ensure that our kids are well prepared to take in the required learning! at school or in the world.

Puzzlextra explores the future of learning in all its dimensions, covering creativity and 21st century skills, technology and innovations in education through play. Our aim for this blog is to give a Home to school support and encouragement via our Home 2 Skool (H2S) Connections nuggets. Hope you enjoy the little nuggets.

H2S Connection: Parents you can reinforce ‘school skills’ through play at home by spending time each day to create a learning experience with a game, puzzle, book or journal, this can help prep the mind for academic work. There are new games in the Nigerian market that fits all ages, so the game can be played by several generations and all ages, none is left out.

Playing games & puzzles do not only provide a platform for learning but a good family gathering that will be remembered for a long time. It is not just the gathering for an owanbe/Party that is a family gathering but the good old days of siblings playing together – are the first taste of team building or competitive play and even problem solving abilities are most likely developed through our childhood play. 

Parents, there seems to be time spent on doing every thing else than spending some quality time with the kids in this fast paced world of us. Some of our games takes 10 minutes to play and 5 mins to calm down the excitement during the set up time. Can you spare 10 minutes – get off that phone or just delay that call, switch off the TV just for 10 mins and have fun with your family.

Parents/Guardian: Do you only evaluate your child’s school’s skill when the result’s are in? or when there is a major milestone – JAMB, GSCE or Primary school leaving?. Do not leave this evaluation to a critical time as a lot of time might have been lost by then.

Also do not leave the preparation of your child’s mind to to the  mercies of Househelp or Lesson Teachers or Private tutors, as they do it at a cost or for a business needs. Luckily for parents and guardians, we don’t need to do much in order to help nurture our children’s school’s skills. We just need to provide time and space for our kids to play make-believe, with our range of selected award winning products of games and puzzles you do not have to search so high depending on what you want to encourage we have games that fits various categories.

Banangrams

Banangrams

BANANAGRAMS– Is fun, simple, educational and also a compact game, it is everything a game should be!

This product teaches language skills, literacy, memory, co-ordination and even listening skills as there are various words to listen out to

Other skills set are built whilst playing the game and this includes concentration, hand and eye coordination.

This also offers delightful family time and use of brain muscles.

One of the beauties of the game of Bananagrams is the simplicity and elegance of the rules

All tiles are emptied and turned over, as soon as all the players have drawn their required number of letters/titles, one of the players will say “Split!”

This is the signal for the players to begin flipping letters and creating words. I won’ spill all the beans (aha!!!) J!!! so you can get your own today and see what other rules apply.

PS: One tip though its rules are a lot less complicated than Scrabble.

Bananagram is a fast game as no player gets bored waiting for their turn and everyone is constantly building and changing their crosswords. It gets much faster and more exciting as the game progresses.

It is also a game of strategy – As each player builds their own crossword in a race against each other, you need to plan and have good foresight as just when you think you are in the lead, your next letter ruins all your plans and before you know it, your opponent has stormed into the lead L!! – am sure no one wants to be in this situation lol, you will find out it brings out the competitive nature of human beingsJ .

It is a recommended game for Educators and can be used in schools to introduce new words or enhance spelling words in a different and fun activity; it is suitable for literacy week/day in school. This product will assist in the preparation of kids for spelling competitions like spelling Bee.

The product ensures kids learn and use words learnt in a fun way, in doing this they build up their vocabulary bank. It is also a fantastic training tool for the firms and corporate bodies.
