Educational Insights Review & Giveaway: Alpha Catch

Alpha Catch

I got it!

First up, we had the Alpha Catch game:

Alpha Catch is the fast-paced, physical way to practice letter names and sounds. Kids take turns tossing self-stick balls, catching them with the sticky catcher’s mitts, and playing fun phonics games about the letters on each ball. It’s a phonemic awareness home run!

Games include:

    • Letter Line Up – “What letter is that?”
    • Ace the Sound – “What sound does that letter make?”
    • Beginning Sounds Catch – “Say a word that begins with that sound!”
    • Ending Sounds Catch – “Say a word that ends with that sound!”
    • Middle Sounds Catch – “Say a word that has that sound in the middle!”
    • Word Catch – “Can you make a word with the letters you caught?”
    • Round Robin Play – “All questions above are asked as a group of kids tosses and catches the balls

Daddy and the kids played this game for the first time when I was not at home. I was walking up to the door and I heard SUCH a commotion inside! Luckily it was a happy commotion, because these kids were having a ball!

Since Lizzie is only 2, we focused more on the colors of the balls for her. With Noah though, we played a few of the suggested games. His favorite was “Ace the Sound” and he was really good at it!

Sometimes it was hard for the kids to catch the balls, because the velcro is in the form of strips all over the ball and the entire ball isn’t made of velcro. This was more of an issue for Lizzie than Noah. Since the game is really meant for children Noah’s age though, it’s not really a big deal.
