    I liked this, but it was more designed for preschool/group purposes and a little hard to adapt for one-on-one use at home.

    I liked the inclusion of the expansion questions to get students thinking about what they felt and why or the difficulties of the game rather than just playing and being done. This taps into their metacognition in reflection while also having fun!
