HearBuilder Auditory Memory Software Program Review
Disclosure: I was not financially compensated for this post. I received a sample of the product for review purposes. The opinions are my own, based on my personal experience with the product.
It is no secret that I am a huge fan of Super Duper® Publications and in fact, it is my #1 choice for all of our supplemental learning activities. I homeschool my three children and Super Duper® Publications has all of the best educational products at the most affordable pricing so it is friendly for our budget too.
We incorporate daily computer lessons into our classroom and recently my children have had the opportunity to try out the HearBuilder® Auditory Memory Software Program ($69.95). This is such a unique addition to our learning software because it targets important auditory skills such as memory, closure and comprehension. My children (ages 6, 7 and 8) were immediately engaged as they joined the Recall Agents team, Joey and Kim as they attempt to save MemoryTown from Dr. Forgetsit. This computer program includes five key listening activities including:
- Memory for numbers (3-7 digits)
- Auditory Closure (Sentence Completion)
- Memory for words (3-5 words)
- Memory for WH information (2-3 sentences/2-4 questions)
- Memory for details (1-4 details)
My eight year old son reports that he “loves” to play this game and doesn’t even consider it to be a learning assignment. He likes that it has multi-level assignments in a mission format that is especially appealing to my adventure –loving son. He really likes the engaging characters and the interactive plot line as he moves through each level while improving his memory and concentration skills. One of the areas that we have focused on in particular for Adam is that he normally needs to have complete silence when completing a school assignment. This can be a challenge with two younger siblings and especially in the real world. I love that the HearBuilder program allows me to add background noise at the expert level so he can practice playing even in distracting situations. Furthermore, I can choose the general levels of play for each of my children based on their age/skill level and can monitor their progress and even print progress reports to see their strengths/weaknesses and plan my own curriculum accordingly.
