Children learn through play. As an occupational therapist who works with children and youth, I use games and toys almost every day to help develop important cognitive, visual perceptual, motor, sensory, social, play and leisure skills. While many different types of activities can be used in therapy, this blog focuses on off-the-shelf games and toys that are accessible to most. Whether you are a therapist, parent, teacher, or a game lover like me, I hope you discover something useful while you are here. Learn a different way to play a game you already own or discover a new game for your next family game night. Either way, just go play. It's good for you!

The OT Magazine named The Playful Otter one of the Top 5 Pediatric OT Blogs.

ZINGO Sight Words

Sight word-themed BINGO game with Zinger tile dispenser.
Work on spatial relations, figure ground, visual discrimination, visual closure, visual form constancy, manual dexterity, eye-hand coordination, social interaction skills, executive functioning skills, fine motor precision, in-hand manipulation, manual dexterity, process skills, play and leisure exploration and participation

In the box: 72 sight word tiles (3 of each word), 6 double-sided cards, ZINGO Zinger

ZINGO is a BINGO game that comes in a variety of themes. I have already blogged on ZINGO Picture Bingo and ZINGO Number Bingo. To avoid repeating myself on the general basics of the game and the equipment, I request that you click on one of the games above and go to my previous blog for the ins and outs of this game and ideas for use in therapy. Here I will list the 24 sight words printed on the tiles included with this game:

As in the other ZINGO games, the cards have two levels of difficulty. I have also blogged on ZINGO to Go. The same makers, but a different format.
