Webber HearBuilder Sequencing Software and Jeepers Peepers Questions Game
Win The National Parenting Center 2011 Seal of Approval
Greenville, SC, May 24, 2011 – The National Parenting Center (TNPC) has presented Super Duper Publications with its prestigious 2011 Seal of Approval for two new, innovative educational products: Webber HearBuilder Sequencing, Home Edition and Jeepers Peepers – The Ask and Answer Question Game.
TNPC Seal of Approval program tests products independently, relying on educators, parents and children to give their overall opinions based on the quality, desirability, sturdiness, interactive stimulation and effectiveness of the materials. All product testers are encouraged to play with each product, while the adult testers pay particular attention to the reactions of children as they use the items.
HearBuilder Sequencing features 120 illustrated sequences for targeting comprehension and critical thinking. Children start in the program by placing two-step sequences in order. As they progress, they are given more challenging levels until they reach the highest level consisting of six-step sequences. HearBuilder Sequencing keeps children’s interest by wrapping the program in an entertaining carnival atmosphere children enter a colorful Fun House, earn virtual tokens as they complete levels and use the tokens to play games in the challenging Arcade.
“We find that educator’s using HearBuilder Sequencing are able to use it not only for young children, but also older ones who struggle with understanding basic sequencing concepts,” said Thomas Webber, Chairman/CEO of Super Duper. “With our home edition, we provide parents with a solid tool for helping their children gain critical skills that will make them better students.”
Julia C, a parent from British Columbia, Canada, knows first-hand the benefits of HearBuilder Sequencing. She stated, “This program was suggested by a speech-language pathologist to help my child with auditory processing. I like how it can be manipulated to suit the child’s needs at different stages and with multiple children. Great program!”
Jeepers Peepers-The Ask and Answer Question Game keeps children laughing while building questioning, describing, categorizing and problem-solving skills. To play the game, one child puts on the colorful Jeepers Peepers goofy, over-sized glasses, and without peeking places a photo card in the Peepers slot. The child faces the other players allowing them to see the photo, and then asks yes/no questions to find out what is on the card. There are five categories of photos: animals, food, people, things, and transportation. Players take turns wearing the glasses, inserting different cards into the Peepers slot, and guessing who or what they are by asking multiple questions. Each time players name correctly the items on the photo cards, they push the electronic spinner and receive the number of chips indicated on the spinner. Play continues in turn, and the player with the most chips at the end of the game wins!
Maria Sassani, an educator from Melbourne, Australia, uses Jeepers Peepers with her preschool children. “They love the zany glasses and colorful photos. This is a great game to encourage children to listen to and answer questions and also practice generating their own questions. It also builds up their semantic knowledge and helps to develop turn-taking skills. Their parents love it as well! [It] has made therapy sessions so much more fun!”
In 2010 TNPC recognized two other Webber HearBuilder Software programs with their Seal of Approval: Webber HearBuilder Following Directions- with 40 Basic Concepts and Webber HearBuilder Phonological Awareness – Sound Awareness for Reading. Super Duper recently released Webber HearBuilder Auditory Memory – Strategic Memory Training for Listening. All HearBuilder programs have Home and Professional editions.
