The cards are good support in acquiring prepositions, counting (a pedagogue/ speech therapist can ask e.g.: Of how many blocks is the tower built?), geometrical shapes (e.g.: What kind of shapes is the tower built of?) and colours (e.g.: Which colours do you see in the picture?). By work with the cards, a child learns to build correct sentence constructions and develops his/her skills to listen attentively and answer the questions.
Pieces of advice:
‘In my opinion the work with cards is more exciting and successful if the set is used together with Wooden Blocks (002238)’, tells the speech therapist Guna Slavinska.

‘I think it is easier to work and vary with the aid, if all cards are grouped in the way as it is shown in the picture below.’ That means that 36 cards would make 9 groups of pictures (9x4), where only location of the object/s is changed (the building/tower is the same, but location of the little people or trees is changed). The set can be grouped in fewer groups as well, for example, in 6 groups – 6 cards in each group.
It is a very beautiful game made of qualitative and hard material with bright and colourful pictures. The aid may be used both by individual and group work. When using it at individual work a child can learn colours, sizes and counting. The game develops cognitive processes – thinking, imagination, perceptivity, and concentration skills.

The game is very useful to test child’s vocabulary, intellect, straight and abstract thinking, and skills to create a narration. With help of the pictures you can tell about natural processes, cooking and food processing.
As it is mentioned in the description of the aid, narration plots apart, the cards may also be used in other ways as well. Interesting is the version to use the images as pairs (grain – bread, bee – honey, milk – cheese, cow – milk etc.).  It provides an opportunity to hold wider discussions about theme of food journey, as well as to work with a lot of thinking and language processes.

The game is suitable for testing and developing child`s alertness, vocabulary, straight thinking, ability to create narration and to base his/her opinion. The game is suitable both for learning about working tools, and verbs.
It is positively, that the way of laying out the cards may be various: they can be used in pairs (e.g. working tool – working environment), or by three (e.g. work – the appropriate working tool – working environment). Also the order of the cards may be changed according to that what the pedagogue wants to pay the biggest attention to.
Positively is also that all actions may be shown by movements, or linked with nouns (e.g. you can lock with a key; you can cut with a saw; you can dig with a shovel etc.). That all make the educational process more interesting.
