Have Fun Learning A New Language With KLOO
We had so much fun playing Kloo! If you love board games and love educational games, then you are going to FLIP for Kloo 😀 We had 4-6 feet of water on our road this week, so we have been stuck at home, with 3 kids, 3 dogs, and a kitten for 2 days! What better time to have fun and brush up on our Spanish?! My husband and Iplayed Kloo with our 3 children ages 15, 9, & 7. The skill levels of each of us are widely varying. My husband took a couple of years of Spanish in high school, then a couple of more Spanish classes while working on his bachelors degree. He’s pretty good at translating for us 😀 My oldest daughter has a year of Spanish which I taught her while homeschooling. My only Spanish is what I learned while teaching my daughter for a year LOL My 7 & 9 year old don’t have any Spanish at all! We all had a blast! We tend to get very silly when we are playing board games and that helps a lot!
It is definitely helpful to have someone who knows Spanish pretty well helping with the younger kids. It got a little frustrating for my 7 & 9 year olds. My husband was a huge help for them 😀 If they had been introduced to Spanish at all before playing, it would have been a completely different story. You don’t need to know much Spanish to have fun with this one. Everyone who played with us learned something new in Spanish just from that one game! We are definitely going to incorporate this into our homeschool routine!
