The Time to Talk Game is a fun and accessible way of helping younger children improve their receptive and expressive language, listening skills, self-esteem and awareness of their own and others’ feelings. It is centred around Ginger Bear, her friends and family and is designed to complement the Time to Talk book. It is easily adaptable and can serve as an introduction to these key areas for younger children, or provide an entertaining way to improve communication skills in older children who are struggling with their social interactions. Children have the opportunity to perform a variety of role-play activities, practise everyday actions, explore emotions and provide information about themselves. Through these fun tasks they learn vital social skills including:
- asking and answering questions
- engaging in basic conversation
- non-verbal communication
- eye contact
- understanding feelings
Contains game board, 96 question cards, 4 Ginger Bear jigsaws, 4 playing pieces, a die and 8-page teacher’s notes.
Ideal for 2–4 players. Approximate playing time 20–30 mins. Age suitability: 4 years +.
