The Best Way to Learn is through play!

Purposeful, Playful, Practice

You want your students to stay ahead of the curve, we want to help.

Strong Learning has created SuperDeck card games for reading, math and other subjects that help keep students engaged in play while learning! Yes, they can play and learn at the same time. In fact, they won’t even know they are learning. With SuperDeck cards, students can play over 10 games such as Go Fish, Rummy, Memory, Bingo, and more with each deck.

Games Play an Important Role in Child Development and Learning

Here’s the Proof!

We measured the before and after reading levels of students who were sent to us for tutoring.

Our tutors worked with each of these students using Strong Learning SuperDecks, some for as little as three hours.

Results of our study show that on average, students improved more than a grade level at an average of only 15 hours of instruction. >>>>

Besides being fun and affordable, research has shown that playing card games and board games are highly beneficial to child development.

  • Children who play cards and board games with their families do better in school.

  • Students learn that practice makes perfect because quality of play begins at their skill levels and improves as they play the games over and over

  • Students who play cards and board games in school get higher grades because they are having fun and when they’re having fun they’re engaged. Engaged students learn! They’re practicing without realizing it!

  • Playing games as a family is one of the healthiest ways to bond. Family relationships grow stronger because family members talk and listen to each other even when competing.

  • Children develop patience while waiting for their turns.

  • Children learn good sportsmanship. They learn that sometimes you win and sometimes you lose and develop the skill of dealing with disappointment.

  • Children become more confident because the rules are the same for every player, no matter how old they are, and everyone has a chance to win.

  • Children learn empathy. For example, a child will help Mommy win if she keeps losing or will laugh with Grandma over something quirky one of them has done.

  • Playing cards and board games in school give students opportunities to use and practice a variety of skills all at once: memorization, organization, pattern recognition, concentration, and following rules.

  • Students learn how to strategize. For example, 7-year-old Sally learns skills such as watching to see which cards her classmate or her brother discard so she can plan her next move. They have opportunities to learn to strategize, to evaluate what they need to do to win or what they’re not doing when they lose. In other words, they learn to think on a higher cognitive level.

  • Playing cards and board games involves interpersonal interaction, which is essential to child development. Videogames have their place, but they cannot replace playing cards and board games, because they do not enhance a child’s interpersonal skills.

  • By playing cards and board games with family, friends and classmates children develop a healthy attitude which affects other parts of their lives.
