Exceptional teachers continuously seek tools that turn ordinary lessons into thrilling adventures that imprint knowledge forever. One such tool has just been added to the NAGC (National Association for Gifted Children) Parenting For High Potential Recommended Toy List.
AmuseAmaze®, published by HL Games USA Limited, is the spellbinding word game for adults and children in grades four and higher.
Director of HL Games, Graeme Thomson, stated, "Great teachers inspire great students by igniting a quest for lifelong learning. AmuseAmaze® is a game for both the young and young at heart so people will never stop playing and learning."
Designed with a board that changes every time you play, and as you play, AmuseAmaze® has garnered a suite of impressive educational accolades including: Mensa Select ®, Creative Child Game of the Year (Word Games for Kids category), i-Parenting award and most recently the NAGC recommendation.
For educators looking to use AmuseAmaze® in the classroom, HL Games can provide a Curriculum Guide prepared by Karen Luciana, fourth grade teacher and winner of the 2007 Golden Game Award for use of games in the classroom. The Curriculum features 18 adaptable lessons to be used in conjunction with AmuseAmaze® that will challenge and excite children while expanding their capacities to spell, write, use common words in new ways and increase vocabulary.
