We are excited to provide a sponsored review of the Super Duper Publications Vocabulary Chipper Chat learning game!
Vocabulary Chipper Chat is a fun and motivating magnetic chip game designed to help children understand and use new vocabulary and language skills aligned with national core curriculum objectives for grades K-5.
Vocabulary Chipper Chat includes 12 colorful game board designs. With five copies of each – for 60 total boards – parents and teachers can teach the same category with up to five children at a time.

Our Thoughts …
Since we have such a narrow age range between each of our kids, they each think that they should be playing to same games as the others. The problem is that a game that is appropriate for our Grace (almost 7) is way too advanced for Matthew (almost 4). A game that is appropriate for Matthew is way to easy for Grace. Poor Sophie is stuck in the middle either way.
Vocabulary Chipper Chat is nice because it caters to each of their levels. I can show Matthew a picture and talk him through the answers a little. I can make it harder for Grace by having her read the questions and pushing her for details that Matthew isn’t ready to provide yet. If Matthew starts to get stuck, I can even challenge Grace and Sophie to give him hints without actually giving him the answer, further strengthening their vocabulary skills.
All three of them enjoy working out the answers, rolling the dice, and collecting their chips. It’s great fun for all.
In addition to playing this game with my family, I fully intend to start using this game in a tutoring program that I participate in with our church. As a teacher, I see great classroom benefit for children with various skill levels. I have already recommended this game to Grace’s first-grade teacher and will recommend it to her second-grade teacher next year.
