About our Games…

Learning Wheels offers a way for parents to spend quality time with their children and for teachers to be able to facilitate and observe the skills being learned in class. Our “no batteries required” method of play ensures that our children do more than sit in front of an impersonal monitor or screen. This hands-on method of play guarantees interaction between the players, conversation about the learning, and a lot of fun! How long has it been since you played a card game or board game with a child? If it has been awhile, get ready to laugh, cheer, and enjoy! You’re going to have a great time!

Learning Wheels offers several types of games, including different card and board games. All of our games come with directions for various levels of play, so that we meet individual learning needs and challenges! We use a few standard games to teach several of the skills you’ll be interested in playing with your child or class. By using a game that is repeated with different skills, you won’t have to teach a new game every time you need to work on a new objective!

A player or team may pick up as many mosquitoes as they want or may hold at any time.  The more mosquitoes you pick up, the more points you will have unless you pick up one with a zero on it!  Then you lose all your points!! You are Zapped!  We offer this game in several different versions such as addition/subtraction, word problems, homophones, alphabet letters/antonyms, and science for upper and lower levels of play.  You’ll find all the versions of this game in the math, reading, and science section of the website.
