Marvy Learns is specifically designed to provide experiences in Piagetian Pre-operational skills that involve learning to group, sort and categorize items based on their form, function, characteristics and traits. Children help the Marvy character to place items that fit in a category in the box that best fits that item. Size, color and shape are emphasized.

Marvy Learns motivates children to develop their logical and inductive thinking skills by allowing them to actively practice on how to arrange and classify objects based on their features. As a result, your students have the ability to understand the relationships between the different category groups.

An additional benefit of this game is the increase in vocabulary skills. Students learn to associate the displayed objects with the defined vocabulary words represented. They choose the items that correspond to the vocabulary that describes each featured category presented. For example, some categories they will see are titled as: “Clothing”, “Nutrition”, “Vegetables”, and “Dairy”.

They can decide which characteristic to sort by They can physically move their hands to arrange the objects. Self-correcting and problem-solving skills are improved as a result of their actions Teachers and/or therapists can easily individualize and adjust the content of the game according to the age of the child, as well as the level of understanding and skill set they have when it comes to classifying and arranging objects.

This game covers key areas and academic goals:

• Concept Sorting according to categories such as color, function and characteristics

• Naming objects and acquiring new vocabulary words

• Classifying according to Nutrition Concepts

• Classifying according to Real-life Connections

Lastly - the instructor can choose how the student can play the game based on occupational goals. For example, the student can play with one hand or both hands. The game can be set to have a specific time limit during each learning game session.

Marvy Learns is the perfect active learning game to help your students increase and develop gross motor skills, visual perception and eye-hand coordination.

So, round up the kids and get their hands and minds ready to help Marvy on his learning journey!
